Are you a coach who wants to add Divorce (and/or Break-up) Coaching to your offerings?

       about 3 1/2 hours of guided independent study in the form of reading, film viewing, and local investigation.

Program Description:

Divorce is often the most significant transition of adult life. However, since most people only divorce once, they enter into the confusing divorce process with no experience. (Wearing blinders and on an emotional roller coaster.) This is the time they need a coach the most. But, most professional coaches don’t have the inside scoop on how to best navigate the treacherous terrain of divorce. This training program is for coaches who want to add Divorce Coaching to their list of services. At the end of this program you will:  (1) understand how to guide your clients through every aspect of divorce – even confusing financial matters AND (2) have a marketing plan for marketing yourself to both the divorcing public AND divorce attorneys, and (3) be entitled to a permanent listing as a Certified Divorce Coach on The Divorce Coach Institute website (currently under construction).

Module 1 – Overview

Module 2 – The Psychological Divorce

Module 3 – Financial Divorce

Module 4 – Logistical Divorce

Module 5 – Legal Divorce           

Module 6 – Moving Forward


Individuals who have completed a basic coach training program or hold a Bachelor’s Degree (or higher) in social work, mental health, pastoral counseling, marriage and family therapy, etc. are eligible to take the course.  If you do not have one of these prerequisites please call Elinor as she has connections to coaching programs that will work for you and will give you a discount.


Successful completion of this certification program will entitle you to a listing on this website, as one of our Certified Divorce Coaches, with your profile and contact info available to potential clients.
