Learning how to say what you want to say is a valuable life skill.
Divorce is a Difficult Time
Divorce is one of the top five stressors that a person can experience in their life. It is normal to feel like your life is over or that it has just begun. There can be highs and lows like you have never felt before. Restructuring your life emotionally, financially and legally takes time, money and perseverance. If there are children involved, you also need to navigate how to co-parent in the best interests of your children. If you are close to retirement, your concerns will be different than a couple with young children. How do you make sure your choices represent your values and address your concerns in the short term and long term?
Help is On the Way
As a divorce coach, I will guide you on how to manage the inevitable conflicts that will arise with your partner. Learning how to say what you want to say is a valuable life skill. Learning how to take the emotion out of a situation and expressing your thoughts in a coherent manner helps with mutual understanding of each other. If there are children, you will know what signs to look for and what to do if your children are in distress. We will discuss how a Co-Parenting Plan is developed considering the best interests of your children. Divorce does not have to damage children for the rest of their lives but how parents go through the process of divorce is going to impact them in learning about relationships. Having a divorce coach in your corner can make the difference between a divorce where bitterness reigns or a divorce where there is mutual respect in coming to agreements you can both live with.
