& Coaching Services
I will help you define and plan the basics of your new roles as co-parents. Finding ways to blend, or create partitions to delineate between your vision for the future, and that of your spouse, will be our challenge as the parenting plan is discussed.
The sessions will will help you create sustainable plan of how to communicate about your child, and how you will agree on making changes to benefit them after the process is complete.
Current family mediation participants, or those who have already signed a separation agreement will take part in one-on-one sessions to develop conflict management skills and the insight needed to bring them into practice.
Joint session are also needed so that clients can learn how to turn a conflict into a meaningful and productive conversation.
This service is for you if you and your spouse do not want to separate and are actively looking for ways to stay together.
The methods I use help create a learning environment where uncomfortable truths can be felt, expressed, and released.
If you are struggling with defining boundaries in a way that preserves the bonds with those you care about, tend to avoid conflict at all costs, or consistently seek to control the outcome of an argument and want to take the lead in making a change, then you will benefit from individual coaching sessions.
This is what divorce mediation will look like at Aligned Choices
Step One -
First, I will meet with you privately. I will ask questions, as well as answer any you have. Telling me what you're seeking and why will allow me to better focus on finding workable solutions ahead of the joint sessions.
Step Two -
We will then all meet in the first joint mediation session. I will lead the discussions and balance the needs for freedom of expression and for providing a safe space. I will bring up each topic, respond to each party's concerns in a manner that encourages curiosity, and guide the conversation toward lasting resolutions.
Step Three -
We will continue with the joint meetings until all subjects in need of attention are covered. Afterwards, I will write up a list of all the points of agreement and give you both a copy or send it to your family lawyer.
Step Four -
I recommend that you speak to a family lawyer and receive advice as we go through these steps together. If you did not consult one before the negotiations, you still have a chance to do so before you sign a legally binding separation agreement.
Step Five -
At this stage you will have the framework for your co-parenting responsibilities, including how you have agreed to communicate with one another, what needs to be discussed, and when. The agreement will need to be revised as your children grow up. Follow up calls and sessions within the first year are normal, and returning to mediation is always a good option.
