Signs You May Need a Divorce Coach
If you feel overwhelmed, exhausted and alone by the many decisions that need to be made in order to divorce, a divorce coach can help you manage the process. Friends and family mean well but before long you are no longer sure whose advice you can trust, whose voice you should be listening to and how to separate the need for love and support from the guidance and direction of a qualified and trained professional who has your best-interest as their goal while not being emotionally engaged with your divorce. Sandra will help you move through your divorce with a sense of confidence that comes from better understanding your options.
Our lives are built day-by-day through the choices we make and the actions we live out. When we got married, we had a vision of how our lives would look – we had dreams of houses, children, trips, holidays, retirement – and then one day, divorce came knocking at the door. At that defining moment the “picture” of our lives that hung over the sofa – you know that picture of how you had your life mapped out – has fallen off the wall and shattered into hundreds of pieces. Suddenly you are standing there looking at all the pieces wondering how you even got to this point in your life. The process of putting that picture back together is overwhelming and riddled with fear emotions – where do you possibly begin?
For some people, the pieces that they struggle to fit together are how to navigate the divorce process – who do you hire, who can you trust, finding a job, starting over, reconciling divorce with your faith beliefs, becoming a single parent, learning how to live alone, how to communicate with your now ex-spouse and so many other unknowns that are now glaring at you.
You feel stuck and don’t know what your next steps should be. You love your family and friends but they are offering advice based on how divorce has shown up in their own life or a friend of a friend’s life. So many stories, so many directions and yet at the end of the day you feel more confused that when you woke up. You hear horrible divorce stories and they only add to the confusion. Sifting through the path on your own can be a daunting task. Sometimes having too many choices can be as paralyzing as only having one or two. While functioning on little sleep, stress being your constant companion, and fear is sitting in the driver’s seat – are not the best recipe for a healthy divorce. This is a time when you need a knowledgeable guide, someone to help you sort out facts from emotions, someone to take you by the hand and assist you as you learn and grow. As your “thinking” partner/coach in the process, Sandra, will create a plan for you, and with you. Step-by-step we will break the process down into manageable pieces and we walk the path together.
If you can relate – you could benefit greatly from having a divorce coach.
