Hi, I'm a divorced mother with two children. I work from home as a certified Life Coach and I'm looking for some feedback if you have a moment.



If you have used life coaching or counseling to help throughout any stage of the divorce process and the recovery period afterward, I would love to hear what worked and what didn't for you. I am designing some groups at the moment, and your fresh ideas and input would be very helpful.



If you have not gotten any professional support, I would love to hear why not, and also what you would find helpful.



I am new to this whole Facebook thing, but am really enjoying it so far. Thanks for your time, and I look forward to hearing from you!

Thank you so much for your feedback. Sounds like you had a life coach who missed the mark! They are not supposed to give you advise...only facilitate the process of you finding the best answers for yourself. Sounds like you did all the right things, and I am glad that you are coming through a difficult time even stronger.

I tryed life coaching to get me through and in the end I found that I did better on my own without my life coach. My life coach gave me some really bad advice, like since I had always been a stay at home mom to try to collect alimony and not to go back to work. In some states you can only collect alimony if you have been married 10 years, ours is one of them and we had only been married 5.

I found things like the parinet group at Head start helpful. It gave me a chance to meet people that were not OUR FRIENDS and that helped. Going back to work helped because it gave me my own self worth, and again a chance to meet new people, that didn't know both of us. Joining a new gym, club or church also sometimes helps. You would not believe how many of your friends, family and church members choose to take sides in a divorce, so sometimes it is just best to get away from it for a little while and center your focus on your life and your kids best interest.
