About the book
In this book, the author, Sushma Kotecha, seeks to focus the reader’s attention on the holistic approach to divorce and separation - a holistic approach considers the physical, emotional and mental impact of the process on the parties and their children.
It is more likely to feature mediation than the court system. It is also more likely that counselling and therapy will be suggested and recommended to support a healthy transition.
Sushma wants people to understand the power and positive shift that comes from dealing with separation and divorce from a place of love, kindness, compassion, acceptance, understanding, letting go, forgiveness, no-judgements and patience…instead of coming from a place of fear, shock, denial, anger, hatred and resentment.
She knows first-hand just how hard this concept is to grasp, especially when one feels hurt, betrayed and/or violated, but the only way to set yourself free and up for greatness after divorce is to follow the above principles and guidance that is detailed in this book.
