Interesting to read the thoughts of 'divorce coach' Sara Davison. Many people see divorce as an end to something, rather than the beginning of something new and exciting. Although the process can be incredibly painful, there is help at hand to guide you through it and offer you the insight into a future after divorce. Counselling and guidance whilst experiencing divorce can be extremely beneficial for both men and women alike.
If anything, divorce can be a catalyst for change, she says, rather than a negative experience that defines you. “Divorce has a very bad name and I want to revolutionise what it can mean,” she says. “It can bring you the opportunity to redesign your life as you really want it.” Not that she positively encourages it – in her book she outlines her “no regrets” exercise, committing to three months of “trying everything you can to save your relationship”. The decision to divorce shouldn’t, she says, be taken lightly, which is why she’s so full of admiration for those who do. “It takes a very strong person to leave. People should be given a medal, not seen as a failure.”
