A good Divorce coach can assist to manage a client’s apprehension. Show the client appropriate anger management, communication methods to deal with all of the concerns and issues that news of a divorce brings.
The coach will have worked with the legal team previously, and if not will brief the legal team on how they add value to the teams’ performance .Provide the team with an in-depth knowledge of the techniques that they use .They may introduce the network of seasoned professionals they work with, and an assessment can be made of particular clients ,–children’s requirements.
