What is a Divorce coach? And do I really need one?
In the most basic of situations, divorce can be overwhelming. How would it be if you could get a personal assistant to assist you with your divorce? A divorce coach is a professional life coach that specializes in divorce. They understand the legal process and how difficult it can be when trying to manage your daily life. A great divorce coach can help you prioritize what you need, guide you through divorce proceedings, and be there for you when you need it.
Divorce coaching is an interesting concept. Because people are becoming more aware of the toxic nature of the “fight and lose” approach to divorce, it is now very popular. But how can you live in the present, and ensure your future is secure? You can have an ally, a skilled professional that has your back and offers all the support that you need without falling into old patterns or keeping you scared.
What is a Divorce Coach?
A coach for divorce is a professional who assists people in navigating the divorce process and helping them to start a new, fulfilling chapter of their lives. They do not provide legal advice. However, they can help determine what kind of legal help is needed and connect you with the best experts and resources to your specific situation.
Divorce coaches cannot give legal advice as they are not lawyers. Instead, they help you determine which expert assistance you may benefit from and what options you have. They also give you the confidence you need to make the right decision.

How is a divorce coach different to a mediator, counselor or therapist?
Your divorce coach is there to connect you to experts and resources. They do not offer any actual advice. Your coach is active in helping you reach your goals and assisting with the development of a strategy. However, it is not a passive source for support. Divorce coaching is not the same as having someone to talk to or a friend. Your coach will be a sounding board that helps you to overcome fears and set goals for the future.
You’ll find answers to powerful questions in coaching.
A divorce coach does not provide legal advice. Instead, they are certified professionals who can help people through divorce. Contrary to mediators who are biased and take sides, your divorce coach will work with you and your spouse to achieve your goals.
