I didn’t know that I would enjoy working with all of what goes on in a divorce; the stress, the anger, the breakdowns. What I learned from my clients is how valuable having a divorce coach is for them.
When a person in divorce seeks to have a thinking conversation about their situation, they may typically think of their attorney who may be busy and can’t see them right now – maybe in two or three weeks from now. It is not the attorney’s fault for being busy and scheduled, it is just how it is. So people resort to talking with family members, friends, and/or co-workers who may or may not enjoy those conversations. Many a family member has sent their divorcing relative to me because they needed an accessible thinking partner. That is what a divorce coach is, an accessible thinking partner.
So all the concerns I had about being a divorce coach did not materialize. They were not there. I was making them up. What happened was a discovery that there is an overwhelming need for coaching and the beneficial impact coaching is having on my clients.
