Separation Coaching & Support
When you fly on an airplane, the flight attendant instructs you to “put your oxygen mask on first,” before helping others. Yet many people find it very difficult to put themselves and their well-being as a top priority. When you are journeying through a separation you will almost certainly need to make some critical decisions and it is essential that you are able to make the right ones.
What is Coaching?
Coaching itself is not a ‘new’ technique – it is the result of a gentle evolution – a greater awareness that many life situations embrace multiple, sometimes tangled issues that need a wider, holistic view to unpick, clarify and resolve them. The objective of coaching is to leave you feeling more in control, less overwhelmed and with a clear plan of action to keep moving.
A coach focuses on the interactions between all areas of your life, on where you are now and where you want to be in the future – and yet has no prescriptions, remedies or proposals. Instead the coach acts as a catalyst to empower you to take control of every aspect of your life and accept your personal responsibility in that role. You and your coach work together to discover the questions that will help you see a situation from new viewpoints, shift unhelpful attitudes and elicit the answers you already have within you.
A coach will talk about what you want in your life – both ‘in an ideal world’ and in the short term. Together you will look in detail at how things really are for you in the here-and-now. They will help you come up with a lot of things you could do to get closer to where you want to be. And together you’ll agree on some ways in which you will move towards that destination, step-by-doable-step.
We work with exceptional coaches who specialise in relationship breakdown.
Coaching & Support for Separation
When a relationship comes to an end it is likely that you and your partner will be in very different emotional places. Often the person who began the separation process is ahead on the path whilst the person who didn’t make the decision may be in shock and denial. Each party will need very different support in the moving on process because they will experience the grieving process on a different timescale.
Many people really struggle to cope with the situation they find themselves in and the lack of control they experience. Some of our clients need support from someone independent and non-judgemental – to whom they can safely express their deepest fears and worries and who can help them face the future head on. We work with professional coaches to help you put the focus on the future and not the past. Working through any negative emotions of anger and frustration with a coach rather than your friends or family will mean that the separation process doesn’t take longer than necessary.
We have also handpicked some coaches who specialise in working with children experiencing a relationship breakdown.
Today I close the door to the past, open the door to the future, take a deep breath, step on through and start a new chapter in my life.
