My Divorce Story
In 2001 I got divorced at the age of 50 after 25 years of marriage. I got remarried at 54 to a wonderful man who came back into my life after 33 years.
I was diagnosed with MS at the age of 35 just as I was starting back to work as a part-time science and technology teacher after taking 7 years out to be a stay-at-home mum. I worked out a physical programme to help combat my symptoms, went on a healthy living diet then did a psychology degree to combat potential cognitive symptoms. I was bitten by the bug of studying and as it seemed to be helping keep my MS under control I went on to complete a PhD. However, my husband got himself a girlfriend because I was now more qualified than him and had the potential to be financially independent. Fragile male ego!!
Although emotionally traumatic, my divorce was fairly amicable. I got a job as a junior lecturer but I knew I wanted more. I found the only female senior academic at the university and asked her what I had to do to move up the ladder as quick as possible as I knew I had to earn enough to be able to keep the house for the boys. She gave me some great advice and a list of things I had to do as long as my arm. Over the next five years, one by one I ticked them off and got a series of promotions to become a senior manager.
Over the last ten years I’ve been planning my much delayed retirement and have trained as a coach in a number of modalities: health and wellness, relationships, NLP, emotional intelligence, passion mapping Harmonizing Wellness and finally as a Certified Divorce Coach.
My aim for my retirement is to support women over 40 going through the trauma of separation and divorce throughout their journey to find renewed passion and purpose and create a new exciting life as a strong independent woman.
