What is The Role of a Collaborative Divorce Coach?
The services of a collaborative divorce coach are often engaged to assist individuals, or couples, going through this difficult transition. A divorce coach can often help guide couples through the difficult negotiations of a settlement, while simultaneously addressing the emotions involved in the process. It is totally normal for there to be fear, anger, and grief during the stages of a divorce. Regardless of whether the decision to divorce is mutual, or one partner makes the decision, both parties will often experience differing emotions that can be expressed during the coaching meetings.
Many techniques can be recommended for healing difficult emotions that will arise during this time. In addition, the goal is to build a new family structure with both individuals having new norms & rebuilding their lives. Meetings will be structured so that both parties needs are met and the goal is for mutual negotiation and collaboration.
