Coaching is for individuals who may or may not be represented by counsel, who are involved in litigation or mediation, and/or are at any stage in a significant relationship change and need help navigating the territory. Coaching empowers individuals by equipping them with relevant information, strategic advice, emotional support, and the practical tips needed to maximize their effectiveness and find peace throughout the process. Individuals are uplifted and strengthened when they need it most.
Coaching does not replace therapy or other recovery programs; it simply provides specific and situational support cost-effectively. Lawyers are not always equipped or interested in helping clients navigate through the emotional and practical side of a breakup, and even so paying a lawyer to provide such support can be expensive.
Each session provides a very tailored and specific sort of support and guidance through the day-to-day challenges such as barriers to communications with the former partner, difficulty with the parenting schedule, navigating a parent-stepparent relationship, or living with a new financial situation.
In addition to the spouses or significant others directly involved, other concerned individuals affected by divorce or new parenting arrangements can use and benefit from coaching, including new partners or stepparents, and grandparents.
If you want to come out of a dissolution or post-dissolution proceeding prepared to move forward positively and constructively with your life, consider the option of hiring a dissolution/coparenting coach.
