Free 30min Discovery Call
Seek a way forward
Separation is hard enough without the confusion, uncertainty and fear of what to do or who to turn to.
A Discovery session with a Divorce coach can assess your current situation to provide guidance and support on your separation journey.
Be empowered to decide the outcome
Separation and Divorce can be a difficult time to negotiate calmly with someone who has hurt you, no longer wants to be in a relationship, or struggling to accept it's over!
If you find that trying to negotiate how to separate the family wealth, shared parenting or moving forward to finalise a separation/divorce is fraught with conflict then mediation can help you.
Mediation is the last chance at being empowered to make decisions together for an acceptable outcome. If you can't come to an agreement in mediation then court is the next step......where the decision will be made for you by a judge!
Parenting after Separation Program
Be great role models
The parenting after separation 'Co-Parenting with Civility' program is a LIVE online 2 x half day group program which provides training, tools & techniques to help you reduce the anxiety and stress in co-parenting.
You will gain an understanding of the impacts of emotional grief, who you are as your best self and a good role model.
You will get to work through your past, current and foreseen future challenges to assess options and solutions to create a better outcome and reduce conflict.
At the end of the program you will receive a pre-populated co-parenting plan and a completion certificate demonstrating your commitment to creating a successful co-parenting relationship.
Let go & flow
Haven't you suffered enough?
It's like being stuck in a time warp, unable to go back to your past life but unable to let go and move on to create a happy future!
You may feel like you are on autopilot, void of emotion being numb or just going through the motions of daily life with no spark or excitement, just existing!
We can either be too scared to let anyone get close to us in fear of being hurt again or feel safe in our current state of existence avoiding any major changes that could have our life come crashing down around us again.
Wouldn't it be great if you could break the shackles of your old life and create your best life yet ?
Our Accelerated Recovery program will change your life in just 8 weeks!
Don't just survive, thrive!
Empower Teens Impacted by Divorce Program
Gain confidence & courage
The greatest heartache for most parents during separation is the worry of the impact on their children.
You may think you’re shielding and protecting your children from the pain of divorce but kids don’t speak up as they don’t want to worry their parents, just as you as parents don’t want to worry them.
Many teens I talk to say they lost the concept of ‘home’ when their parents separated as it has now become ‘Mum’s house’ and ‘Dad’s house’.
They lose their sense of belonging, stability, and security, plunged into a life of uncertainty and chaos.
Teenagers are already going through major change in their life without the added stress and anxiety of coping with their parents divorce!
The 'Empowering Teens impacted by Divorce' program helps teens through the emotional turmoil, deal with change, improve communication to navigate stressful conversations & minimise conflict and so much more .....
Shared Pet Parenting
Separation or Divorce is fraught with high emotions, conflict, stress and anxiety as you deal with the emotional grief of the breakup, impact on the children, financial insecurity and future uncertainty……..and to top it off, who gets the dog!
The legal system considers pets as property……. so if you both can’t come to an agreement on who gets the dog, the court will decide based on factors such as who paid for it and who has the biggest yard!
To us, our dog is part of the family. We all know how anxious we can become leaving them when we go on holidays, or worry about them when they are ill staying at the vets, not to mention if they run away in a storm frightened and scared.
Pet mediation can help you reach a workable solution so the whole family maintains the bond and relationship with the pets.

My name is Cheryl Duffy and I am the founder of The Divorce Centre.
After nineteen years of marriage, my world was turned upside down. Every facet of my life was impacted and I felt like I was in a fog, not knowing what was ahead for me and my children.
I spent 6 years self sabotaging through comfort eating, which fuelled my self loathing as I had plummeted into depression.
I finally found the help I needed. I decided my negative experience had to become a positive one so I became a Certified Divorce Coach and Accredited Mediator to help others accelerate their recovery so they don't waste years of their life like me.
