SUPPORTING YOU WITH ALL YOUR RELATIONSHIP NEEDS THROUGH BREAK-UP AND LOSS TO CREATING THRIVING RELATIONSHIPS

What is a break-up and divorce coach?

A break-up and divorce coach will support you emotionally and practically before, during and after the relationship break-down and steer you through every stage of the process, guiding, motivating and empowering you to make the best possible decisions for your future. This gives you clarity and focus and enables you to take the action to move forward from the pain, anger, and heartache, break through any barriers holding you back, take control, regain self-confidence, and design the new life you want to create post-split.

HOW DO YOU USE ENERGY HEALING To CLEAR EMOTIONAL BLOCKS?

It is recognised that emotional stressors stored in the body can create physiological issues. It is also recognised that people who have undergone traumatic and stressful life events often develop physical symptoms. Energy healing may help to release the blocked energy in the body thereby relieving both emotional and physical issues.

What is the difference between a lawyer and a coach?

A lawyer will advise you on the law, your legal situation and take you through the legal process. When you instruct the lawyer to advise you, you essentially hand over responsibility of the running of your case to the lawyer and defer to the lawyer’s knowledge of the legal process even though the lawyer is acting upon your instruction as part of the lawyer/client retainer. It is therefore directional and your role is more passive. A coach on the other hand does not direct but makes suggestions and offers guidance and support and empowers you with a new set of skills to enable you to deal head on with all the practical and emotional issues that arise at every step of the process, to move beyond them and to take progressive action towards your goals.

No. I do not offer legal advice, but provide practical and emotional support. I work alongside your lawyer to support and guide you through the process. But my legal experience and knowledge of the legal process, coupled with my personal experience, enables me to support you fully as you move through the process and helps to keep down your legal costs.

 

More and more lawyers are welcoming the addition of a coach as part of a client’s support team because by helping a client work through emotional issues and focus more effectively on practical matters, that client will find it easier to give instructions and to make better decisions. And that is no mean feat when going through a challenging legal process.

 

My service as a relationship coach does not constitute legal advice and should not be regarded as such.

Can you help me choose my lawyer?

I do not choose lawyers for my clients, but can make recommendations. Any recommendations I make will be to lawyers/firms known to me. As part of my coaching ethos, I do not recommend firms randomly. If you are thinking of instructing a particular lawyer or firm of solicitors and wish to discuss your ‘choice’ with me then I will do that on the basis that the final decision to instruct a particular lawyer/firm is yours and I cannot be held responsible for the choice of lawyer/firm you make.  When you are looking to instruct a lawyer however, I would suggest that you consider instructing one who has a holistic approach and who is a member of Resolution (a community of family justice professionals who work with families and individuals to resolve issues in a constructive way).

What is the difference between a therapist and a coach?

Therapists help clients work through past trauma and look to break patterns that keep them stuck. And therapy often involves a clinical diagnosis and looks at mental and psychological issues and root causes. Coaching on the other hand is an action-orientated, future-focused process to help you make changes in your life. In the coaching process, guided by your coach, you take consistent steps forward towards your goals and deal with any blocks along the way which prevent you from reaching them. Action is a key element to coaching and is how you move from A-B on to Z.

What is the difference between a consultant and a coach?

The role of a consultant is very similar to that of a lawyer in that the consultant will take the facts of your case, use his/her expert knowledge to assess those facts and then provide you with a course of action steps for you to take. Whereas a coach will listen to your story, ask you a series of deep-dive questions to establish what you need to change to enable you to move forward and then makes suggestions about ways you can do that and give you the tools to implement lasting positive change.

What is the difference between a mentor and a coach?

A mentor is someone who works in the same field as the person he/she is mentoring but has much more experience or skills in that field and can therefore impart his/her knowledge based on his/her own higher level of experience and skill set. A mentor therefore will teach and guide the mentee to act from the mentor’s perspective in accordance with the mentor’s own knowledge, experience and skills. This is a completely different approach from a coach who coaches from the perspective of the client and guides the client into making his/her own decisions by posing the right questions and then taking action on them.

Mentoring is directional but less structured than coaching.
