What is a Collaborative Divorce Coach?
Divorce is a complicated, difficult, and emotionally challenging process.
It's normal for people to experience a wide array of emotional issues during divorce which can further complicate an already difficult time. The coach is an integral part of the collaborative team, along with attorneys and a financial professional, who helps the clients identify, communicate, and manage emotional concerns during the divorce process so they can participate in the healthiest, most productive ways and negotiate a mutually beneficial agreement.
As a "neutral" team member, the coach supports the process by helping the attorneys more fully understand the clients and discover optimal ways of addressing issues to build durable agreements.
The coach is a highly skilled mental health professional who is able to assist the parties in navigating this difficult time in the most constructive positive manner possible by keeping the lines of communication open, facilitating the process, and helping them develop skills that will enhance their post divorce lives.
Investing in a coach as a part of your collaborative team can actually reduce the expense, time and destructiveness of a divorce by minimizing conflicts and maintaining focus on the best possible outcomes for all involved.
