Coaching is a service (1) that gives counsel and advice to aid another person gain a sharper vision of their goals and interests and (2) gives advice of how best to achieve their goals and interests. Many people are aware that they have “blind spots” or “tunnel vision”. They learn this by making decisions and life choices that produce results they do not like. They may feel frustrated because nothing they try seems to work. They may have a sense of self defeating thoughts and behaviors and feel trapped.
A coach is a person who has a detached perspective that can detect the “blind spots” or “tunnel vision”. Then, with compassion can guide the other person to insights that alter their thought patterns and behaviors thus producing a satisfying life experience — a life you love to live.
People going through a divorce or a separation of an intimate relationship — especially if children are involved — are in a very high stress circumstance.

The connection from the “thinking” part of your brain is cut and goes to the “reptilian” part of your brain. Now you are in the classic mode of: “Fight, flee, freeze, or flock”.
