The Gray Divorce Podcast: Episode 39 Working with Women as a Divorce Coach with Nanette Murphy

Andrew Hatherley |

In Episode 39 of The Gray Divorce Podcast, Andrew chats with Life, Health, and Divorce Coach Nanette Murphy. Nanette draws from her personal experience with gray divorce to help women as a divorce coach before, during and after divorce.  

Andrew and Nanette also discuss the important connection between physical and mental health and how Nanette’s expertise as a life and health coach complements her divorce work. 

Among the topics covered: 

  • The “lifequake” of late-life divorce. For years, couples have had expectations on how their lives would play out. Suddenly those plans are upended causing emotional and financial distress. 

  • Therapists and Coaches. The role each can play in divorce. 

  • “Divorce Brain” and how it can lead to making bad decisions in divorce, often the largest financial transaction in a person’s life. 

  • Alternate Dispute Resolution techniques such as mediation, Collaborative Law, and the Amicable Divorce Network 

  • The importance of finding the right attorney for your situation. In some cases, people will need a skilled litigator. But the “divorce industrial complex” often fuels the fires of divorce, making the process more stressful, both emotionally and financially.  

  • The physical and psychological benefits of going to the gym and keeping fit. 

  • Post Divorce Growth and the need to find purpose in our lives. 

  • How giving of yourself can contribute to personal growth after divorce. And how the benefits of giving can often exceed receiving.
