As importantly, it supports them in moving forward towards that future one step at a time. To make the best decisions possible, the client may need to increase the effectiveness of the tools they have at their disposal, including:
- Decision-making practices
- Dealing With Conflict
- Emotional Intelligence
- Organization skills
- Future focus
These tools are important for every step in the process of divorce.
Divorce Coaches can also help a client who hasn’t yet decided to divorce, who is grappling with the “should I or shouldn’t I” question, to understand the impact of divorce on all aspects of their life – approaching divorce from an “eyes wide open” standpoint to determine if the trade-offs and consequences of divorce are the best decision for them and their family.
The roll-up-your-sleeves kind of work that a divorce coach does helps the client in ways that are different from a therapist, a mediator, and an attorney, and complements their work in helping the client to make the best decisions for their future based on their wants, don’t wants, and their needs. This work has a good chance of empowering them to take the high road and change their experience of divorce – for the sake of themselves and their family!
