Although divorce rates are generally falling, for people over 50, the rate has doubled in in last 20 years with 57% of first marriages of 20+ years now ending in divorce. Having divorce at the age of 50 after 25 years of marriage, I have walked the journey of the silver splitter and now, after building a very successful academic career post-divorce, whilst also building a thriving coaching practice, I am retiring from academia to become a full-time divorce coach.
The emotional rollercoaster of a mid-age divorce is never easy for a woman facing the additional problems of empty nest syndrome, menopause, the need to establish a career in order to have a pension pot and possibly elderly parents and maybe their own failing health. Working with someone with experience as well as qualifications can help your divorce be as easy as it is possible to be, save you expensive hours with the legal team and build your confidence up to face whatever life throws at you.
‘Sue helped me put together the paperwork for my form E, ask the right questions, and built my confidence to fight for my share of the assets during my divorce from my controlling husband. Without her help, I would have crumbled and left with very little. Now its all over, she’s still there to help me design my new exciting life’ A Shropshire.
‘The first day I saw Sue I was a snotty crying mess. By the end of the 8 weeks, I’d found a new home, organised a mortgage, and applied for a promotion at work. I don’t know how she did it but she intuitively knew when I needed pushing and when I needed more gentle handling. Now six months on, I feel like a new woman. My friends and family can’t believe the change in me.’ Sarah Yorkshire
‘When I first came to Sue, I was determined that my marriage was over. I was hurt and angry. We had stopped communicating, we were disconnected and, according to our kids, the house felt like a battlefield. Sue’s quiet confidence and gentle manner calmed me down. Her workbooks, which I shared with my husband, showed us how to start really talking, how to reconnect and how to be more compassionate and understanding. We decided to start over and now, two years on we are a new couple. Love it.’ Tina, Lancashire
