Divorce As a Catalyst For Growth
Divorce changes people. With the right support, it can change us in a good way. In today’s world, it’s likely we will have two or three significant relationships, and how we end those relationships is important, if we don’t do it well, we take the emotional baggage with us! Hence, why 67% of second marriages end in divorce. Working with a divorce therapist can change that.
Divorce recovery is about getting the emotional side of your divorce under control so you can accept, let go and get clear on what you want. This empowers you to make confident decisions about your family’s future.
Difficult emotions, anger, sadness, jealousy can get the better of us. Learning to identify and soothe thoughts and feelings which disempower you is an absolute must (and skill you can learn).
Learning to set healthy boundaries and to communicate effectively for co-parenting and divorce negotiations will reduce anxiety, and help the divorce process .
Clarity of Mind
Stress affects our decision making. Speaking with a divorce therapist will help you to gain clarity and confidence in what you want..
Acceptance & Letting Go
Divorce is 85% emotional and 15% logistical. Psychologically divorce insults our ego, it attacks us at our very core and it’s very easy to be emotionally driven and in ‘reaction mode’. I teach my clients how to detach from their ‘ego story’ and to use ‘responsible self-reflection’ to find acceptance and the choice to let go. This helps you to reclaim your power.
"I tried everything, months of counselling, anti-depressants and nothing worked until I met Maxine. Working with her I was able to process my feelings and make sense of what happened in my life. I have grown, forgiven the people who have hurt me and come to a new profound understanding of relationships, love and myself. Maxine is a real life angel and I would definitely recommend working with her."
"For years I was stuck from moving on from my divorce. The a-ha moments I had during the sessions and working through the Divorce Detox were life changing. In such a short space of time I feel so much lighter, grounded and I've actually started doing things I love again."
"I had been resentful for a long time (10 years), with divorce coaching I finally realised, I too was to blame for my wife's affair. It gave me a new respect and empathy for my ex. A few months later, I actually met my new partner & fell in love."
"I would recommend Maxine to anyone that has relationship issues. She is highly professional and so easy to open up to."
"Coaching with Maxine helped me realise my marriage was over long before my husband left. She helped me to see that my view of the relationship while I was in, was very different to the reality. Healing is hard, it is easier when you do it with a coach."
"My marriage broke down because I had an affair. Or that's what I thought, through the coaching I realised I had picked a man who was emotionally unavailable, and then I was trying to get my needs met outside the marriage. Before coaching I felt a lot of shame about my divorce, now I understand why I behaved the way I did, and feel love for that part of me."

“I am truly grateful to have found Maxine. After the end of my 42 year marriage I was desperate for help with acceptance and letting go. Maxine’s unique teaching helped me see ways I could change my negative thinking and fixed beliefs. It’s a work in progress but with Maxine’s tools and exercises I know I am at last moving forward to freedom and happiness!” – Liz, UK
