I am divorce coach who can support you through this transition - in fact, I aim for it to be a positive transformation. I offer practical guidance and tailor-made strategies that get results and leave you feeling empowered and supported.
I am a mum and a divorcée with personal experience of a high-conflict divorce. My career history includes teaching (I was Head of English in a London prep school) and a stint in the corporate world. After a few years as a stay-at-home mum, I became a coach. I have a a long-standing interest in positive psychology and personal development, and trained as a Virtual Coach with Eben Pagan in the US.
Having been through the divorce and divorce recovery process personally, and helped many other parents, I know the battlefield. I can help you as you make decisions and take the next steps.
If you’re getting divorced, don’t wait to get in touch: the earlier you receive support and advice, the better you will feel and the greater your chances of getting through divorce without inflicting damage on your children, your mental health and your bank balance.
I have a strong track record for helping parents to negotiate challenges without recourse to the court, although I also help parents if they go to court.
I teach a method of communication skills called ‘Emotional Cooperation’ which I devised for divorcing parents, even those in high-conflict situations. Even once the ink is dry on your decree absolute, you will need to find the right way to communicate with your coparent, and the skills you will learn can help you straight away.
It’s great to meet you.
‘Lucy’s (extensive) personal knowledge of the legal and court systems, razor-sharp intellect (she is awesome at quickly firing off an effective email) and no-nonsense but personable approach make her the perfect person to metaphorically (I’m sure she’d do so in real life too!) hold your hand through this whole scary process.’
‘Lucy has been a great support and makes difficult times more bearable. She is easy to talk to as she listens with empathy while I download, but knows just when to steer the conversation to what options I have, helping me come up with a practical plan and giving me confidence that I can do it. Having worked with children as a teacher, and through having her own children, Lucy knows how different approaches to divorce can affect children differently, but also how hard it is to do it “well”. She understands how emotionally challenging it can be when you want the best for your children and don’t trust your ex. Just having someone who understands what you are going through makes it easier to calm your emotions enough to come up with a practical plan.’
