My experience with divorce doesn’t come from my own separation, but through having worked for the past 14 years as a family lawyer. Over that time I have worked with hundreds of clients, and there isn’t much that I haven’t come across.
I know the system well – and its shortcomings. I have seen how emotionally and financially draining the process can be and how negative the long term consequences can be for both the parents and children when it gets messy.
I have sat across the table from so many mums clearly overwhelmed by the process and the challenges of their new reality as a single mum. In pain. Scared. Confused. Struggling to make decisions. Unable to move forward. Even with the support of friends, family, a counsellor and other professionals, it seemed something (or someone) was missing for many of these women. Then I discovered divorce coaching.
In my role as a Divorce Coach I want to support and empower single mothers. I am able to use my skills and knowledge to help single mums in a holistic way.
I have an interest in all things health, wellness and personal development. As a coach I am able to share what I have learnt in these areas with my clients. I believe that if mums can be their best selves during the divorce process, the impact on their children will be minimised.
Looking at the bigger picture, I feel that in supporting mothers’ transition through their break-up and helping them to become happier and healthier, this will promote happier families and communities.
I hope the mums I work with, will lead the way in changing the face of divorce and showing that it is possible to separate in a respectful and graceful way.
