My Story

What Inspired Me to Help Others through Divorce

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. My husband left and every facet of my life was impacted. I felt like I was in a fog, not knowing what was ahead for me and my children.

I plummeted into depression and spent 6 years in post-divorce purgatory making 5 big mistakes delaying my recovery.

1. Self Sabotage

2. Harbouring Resentment

3. Half glass full attitude

4. Scared of getting hurt again

5. Staying in my old life

I ate my emotions self sabotaging through comfort eating which fuelled my self loathing. My self worth was at an all time low.

Eventually I sought the help I needed and successfully let go & moved on from my divorce. 

My biggest regret, was not my divorce it was wasting those 6 years in depression and taking a further 2 years to transform myself and my life.

I was determined to create something worthwhile out of my negative experience to help others to move through their traumatic separation and divorce journeys more quickly and with more support.

Firstly, I published the best seller, The Divorce Tango, as a guide to others who are going through divorce, to provide insight into the divorce journey, the emotional grief, impact on the children, gaining financial stability, rebuilding self confidence & self worth to rebuild a new happy life. 

Secondly, I became a Certified Divorce Coach & Accredited Mediator to help provide direct support to help people through and beyond divorce so they can recover & rebuild their life faster.

Finally, I founded The Divorce Centre with programs and services to help families through and beyond divorce from mediation, co-parenting, or letting go & moving on to rebuild a new life.

I am here to help you, to provide you support and advice from both personal experience and professional training. 

Divorce isn't the end, it's a new beginning !
