"Divorce coaching is a flexible, goal-oriented process designed to support, motivate, and guide people going through divorce to help them make the best possible decisions for their future, based on their particular interests, needs, and concerns. Divorce coaches have different professional backgrounds and are selected based on the specific needs of the clients. For example, some divorce coaches are financial planners, mental health professionals, lawyers, or mediators who have experience dealing with divorcing clients."
~ The American Bar Association website
What is the difference between coaching and therapy? Coaching is future focused and supports clients to move forward from their current situation. The primary focus of coaching is creating actionable strategies for achieving specific goals. The emphasis is on self-discovery, action, accountability, and follow-through. Therapy is focused on psychoanalyzing the past and the impact it has had on an individual. There are cases where a client will benefit from working with both a therapist and a coach, especially if the individual is suffering from severe anxiety, depression, or childhood trauma. For clients who have a desire to change and are goal oriented, coaching is an excellent choice.
I have worked with therapists before, how does coaching differ? Some people thrive in therapy, while others get stuck and wrapped up in the analysis of why and how and what if. For those individuals coaching is a very positive and driven approach, where there is no room for getting stuck. The process is very goal oriented, and that structure assures both coach and client to measure success and evaluate the strides that were made.
