A divorce coach is not a consultant, therapist or mentor. A divorce coach will help you live in the present, and set sights on a desirable future.
Coaching is a collaborative relationship between the client and coach. Through a relational approach, the coach comes alongside the client to help bring clarity to the current situation, and begin the journey to a preferred future. A trained, certified coach has the ability to ask the right questions and use the right techniques to help the client unlock their potential.
