Divorce Coaching

Train as a Divorce Coach with our accredited online course!

This is a comprehensive 6 module online course for people wishing to work as divorce coaches. It also explores the skills required to run a successful coaching practice, from setting up business to working with clients.Divorce coaching offers a non-judgmental, supportive environment in which clients can: overcome the overwhelm of divorce; be better prepared for wherever they are in their divorce; access professional support pre, during, or post-divorce; develop clearer thinking about decisions; and learn how to move forward into their future.

I've worked as a life coach for over 5 years and found an increasing number of clients are coming to me with issues around divorce. I chose the course as I felt it would give me the underlying knowledge and skills I needed to support them more effectively. Can't recommend it highly enough! It's comprehensive and easy to follow, and has given me the confidence to specialise as a divorce coach.
