This directory of Collaborative professionals in Edmonton and area provides the quickest and easiest way to find the qualified professionals you need to obtain a divorce or separation without going to court and needing to deal with all the associated costs and stress.
No two people will need the same support — you may need a collaboratively trained divorce lawyer and a financial planner, another couple may need a family specialist for counselling services and a divorce coach. Yet another couple may just need a family law lawyer who knows how to help a couple through a collaborative divorce.
Divorce Coaches are licensed therapists who have specialized training in the area of divorce/separation. They help clients address intense emotional issues that often create barriers in settling disputes during this challenging time. They will assist the individual by providing them with resources, education, and information, while helping develop positive stress management, effective communication, and conflict-resolution skills. Divorce Coaches can also assist with clarifying the individual’s needs, interests, and concerns to prepare them to advocate for themselves in team meetings. This keeps the process moving forward, but also supports the development of long-term healthy coping as the family continues to live in two-households.
