Here's an overview of how Coaching works
What is a Holistic Divorce Coach
A holistic divorce coach can help you navigate the complexities of divorce while managing your emotions, stress, anxiety, and depression.
Divorce coach Sushma Kotecha will educate and guide you through the legal principles and process of divorce while also encouraging a self-care and stress-management regime. While she will not provide legal advice, Sushma has over 30 years of combined experience in family law as a divorce lawyer, accredited family mediator, and divorce coach, as well as being a divorcee herself.
Through divorce coaching sessions, Sushma helps clients address some of the most common challenges and fears associated with separation and/or divorce, such as not understanding the legal process, feeling uncertain about the future, and struggling with communication and conflict with your ex-partner. She can also give professional guidance on how to sort out financial and housing arrangements and manage the adverse emotional impact of the divorce on your children.
Sushma's approach to divorce coaching emphasises healing and recovery. She helps you become more self-aware of automatic reactions that may not serve you well during this difficult time. By breaking the divorce journey down into smaller, manageable objectives and stages, Sushma helps you maintain a greater degree of control.
Are you ready for a divorce coach?
To determine whether you are ready to be coached, Sushma asks three key questions, on a scale of 1 to 10:
How important is it to you to make a change?
How ready and willing are you to make the changes required?
How confident are you about making changes with the right support?

If you decide to work with Sushma as your divorce coach, complete the online coaching referral form and pay for your session(s) at a cost of £250 for one hour or £1,250 for a discounted package of 6 sessions on our services page. Sushma will then contact you to schedule your Zoom coaching session(s) at a mutually convenient time.
You will receive a pre-session questionnaire to fill out and return before your first session. You will also be asked to sign a coaching agreement contract outlining the scope and terms of coaching.
Coaching sessions will be tailored to your specific goals and objectives and will be guided by your current needs and concerns.
Sushma will help you develop a personalised divorce plan that includes self-care and stress management strategies to restore balance to your mind and body. This will enable you to make informed and conscious decisions throughout your separation and/or divorce journey, ultimately serving you and your family's best interests.
Sushma has unusual, perhaps unique experience in that as well as being a coach, she has practiced family law for many years, taking a holistic, non-adversarial approach and she also acts as a family mediator, so she can offer coaching from many perspectives.
I found Sushma’s approach really helpful – she was open to steering the conversation wherever I needed it to go, supportive and affirming, but also challenging when necessary. She offered helpful, pragmatic guidance on next steps and – being a naturally warm and concerned person – did so in a kind and attentive manner.
