Do you want to take the drama out of your divorce?

If this sounds like you, you’re in the right place…

Confused…

Are you thinking about divorce but not sure if it’s the right thing to do?

Are you finding it difficult to make decisions because you can’t think clearly, there are too many variables and you are scared to make the wrong choice?

Upset…

Are you going to meetings with your lawyer and spending time and money talking about emotional upset rather than the legal process?

Do you want to make sure you ‘put the children first’ but you’re not really sure what that looks like or what it means?

 

Unsure of practicalities…

Are you worried about going back to work or building a new career?

Are you scared about how you are going to manage financially in the future?

Divorce can be heart-breaking

Letting go of the past can seem utterly overwhelming – years of shared history and memories, good and bad can be difficult to move on from.

Jenny Buchanan, Senior partner, Gardner Leader, says, “When a client comes to a meeting with their solicitor with a considerable amount of emotional upset it can be difficult to move forward and focus on the issues that are relevant to the legal process.”

The work that I do gives you the opportunity to deal with emotion, anger, upset and worry which means that time with the lawyers is focused and efficient.

Divorce can be tough – but it can also be a fresh start for you.

Simple. Calm. Practical. Support.

Let’s get the building blocks in place…

Resilience.

You will establish a secure awareness of your own resilience and the confidence to deal with any situation that life throws at you.

There may be times when you want to throw the towel in and surrender but I can support you through the overwhelming process of the divorce and work with you to build the future you want. You’re stronger than you think.

Inspiration.

Navigating the way through the ups and downs of a divorce with grace and calm makes everything easier and gives clarity on what is important and what isn’t.

Through our work together, you’ll find yourself full of inspiration to create the life that you really want to live, the one that’s waiting for you the other side of this period in your life.

Practical Plans.

I am a qualified transformation life coach and I can help you find the decisions that are right for you and your family.

I can help you see how to take clear, practical steps to navigate this period and to move forwards, so you can feel confident you know exactly what to do, and when.

About Anita

I understand divorce; I’ve done it twice.

I understand the process, I understand the jargon and I understand the overwhelming ‘to do’ lists, the painfully slow progress, the stress, the frustration and the feeling of being trapped in a never-ending cycle of conflict, upset and anxiety.

However, I also know that it doesn’t have to feel so difficult and painful. That it is possible to have a completely different experience of the situation, no matter how bad it feels right now. I have spent my working life building people’s confidence, helping them to achieve goals and dreams they never believed were possible.

A break from working when my daughter was born in 2014 gave me a chance to revaluate my life and consider what I wanted next.

I am now a single mother and I love my life, I’m excited about the future and I love sharing my knowledge, experience and skills with others who don’t want to be defined by their divorce.

I have a Transformational Life Coaching Diploma from Animas, I have completed the Practitioner Programme with One Thought and I am studying for an honours degree in psychology.

The combination of personal experience and the training and expertise to help you get calm and clear about what it is you want to achieve and how to go about it will save your time, your money and your sanity.

I am not a therapist.

I won’t pick apart your childhood and we won’t spend hours analysing why you are where you are.

Neither will I give you tools and techniques to learn and master. My method of working will give you less to do, not more, because I know you already have enough balls to juggle.

Every situation is different and every divorce is unique and one size does not fit all. My methods of coaching allow me to tailor each session to help you with where you are in that moment.

I understand that relationship breakdowns never just involve two people. Friends and family are always well meaning but may be unhelpful. They are often too close, they may have their own agenda, and they usually don’t understand the process or the intricacies of your situation.

As someone who has walked this walk, I understand how overwhelming and complicated it can feel. As a qualified coach, I am perfectly placed to be your champion, by your side on this journey, but without the emotional attachment. This is your time, your opportunity to build the future you want. If it was possible for me, it’s possible for you.

 

 

You can have your experience without your experience having you.

– Linda Pransky

 

What others say

“My sessions with Anita were such help in clearing my head at the end of the week. She listened so well and I always felt like a weight had lifted at the end of them. She always asked me just the right questions that got me to come to conclusions on my own. ”

I was always over thinking and worrying and struggling with relationships. I had tried therapy and counseling but they both just made me feel worse. My sessions with Anita made so much sense and I thought why didn’t anyone work with me like this years ago. With Anita I never had to drag up the past and I always felt better after our sessions instead of worse. Anita is very calm and a person who you feel you can open up to on a personal level. J.G.

Anita came along at just the right time for me and I always look forward to my sessions with her. I have always found life a struggle but I have come to see where my worrying and anxiety comes from and as a result I am starting to find life much easier. Anita has helped me think differently and I feel much more grounded now.

“I really don’t know where I would be if I hadn’t met Anita. Life is still pretty messed up but I can see a path clearly right through the middle now. She has helped me so much to move forwards. I cannot thank her enough for what she has opened up in my life. I am feeling much stronger than I ever have and I’m doing it alone.”
