Best known as the Divorce Coach, Sara Davison, has created revolutionary new ways to cope with breakup and divorce. She has combined her coaching skills with her own personal divorce experience in her newest book, “Uncoupling How To Survive And Thrive After Breakup And Divorce.” She joined Inside South Florida to share more about her book.
“I found out after only a couple of years of marriage that my husband didn't want to be married to me,” says Davison. “He had actually fallen in love with somebody else and moved on quickly. While he was super happy, he left me absolutely devastated.”
With their son only being one, Davison became a single mom overnight.
“I lost my husband and we also worked together,” says Davison. “There was so much change in my life. Like people going through breakups, I just didn't see a future. I couldn't even see a light at the end of the tunnel.”
She didn’t have an inkling back then, but when she looks back the signs were there.
“There were definitely red flags,” says Davison. “I work with clients all over the world on these challenges. You can kick yourself when you think if I'd done things differently.”
In the book she highlights and illustrates the five stages of emotion that you can go through post breakup.
“What's really interesting, most people don't know that divorce is known as the second most traumatic life experience we go through,” says Davison. “It actually follows those same stages: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance.”
Davison has tried to create a safe space for people to talk freely about how they feel during this time.
“I think a lot of people, their friends, get fed up with hearing the same story. They think you should be a bit further down the line, but it doesn't work like that. It's a roller coaster of negative emotions,” says Davison. “I run support groups where my accredited coaches, who I've trained personally, run support groups online.”
