30 things I love about coaching

by | 6 Apr 2020

I started working with coaches a couple of years ago and consider them crucial to my life and work. I was reflecting on this, and considering some of the ways coaches can help. You might never have hired a coach before – well, divorce is a great time to find a coach and start reaping the rewards.

During a divorce, you’re facing unparalleled change and upheaval. More than ever you need to build a team of people who can help you with personal and professional support. 

In coaching, I dig into all areas of my clients’ lives (this is one of the things I enjoy about the job) and and so I can help with whichever aspect of divorce needs attention.

The Split: How well does it represent real-life divorce?

I’m a little late to the party but I’ve finally watched The Split. I’m fascinated by the world of family law and I love a good BBC drama, and I now proclaim myself a fan.  As I watched, at times I found myself nodding with recognition and at others I bristled...
