“I somehow stumbled across Divorce Family Mediation and Coaching via Instagram and was really inspired by the posts that I had seen. I contacted them via Instagram and set up an initial consultation, which was free and straight away I knew this service was exactly what I needed. As a mother of 2 myself experiencing separation, I knew that whatever happened within this process of separation I wanted our children to be as stable psychologically as possible. I knew we were going to have to coparent but I really had not idea how we were going to this in an amicable manner that worked for us. Especially as we live in different parts of the world.
Jan was absolutely made for this role, she is extremely knowledgeable in this field and was able to offer suggestions and advice that I feel has absolutely benefitted myself and the children. I have seen a change in the children’s father which I really wasn’t expecting, however it just goes to show what one can achieve when the appropriate boundaries are implemented.
I am really thankful that this service exists and I feel reassured that there is a sense of direction, this was an investment worth doing for my children.”
“I was struggling with how to establish boundaries during divorce with my ex-wife. I didn't want to neglect the co-parenting relationship or my kids but it was challenging to transition until I reached out for coaching services. Now, things run smoothly and our kids are feeling more at peace going between two homes.”
“Jillian has been great with my kids. They are gaining more confidence after each session.”
"Eternally grateful for the progress we were able to make and the final outcome we reached with Jan's help. I was certain my ex would be adamant about going to court for custody, and while I was fairly confident things wouldn't pan out the way they wanted, I really didn't want to have to go through the process and dragging it out further (plus the funds it would take.) Jan was neutral, respectful and validating for both parties. I felt heard and I knew that my ex did as well despite things not going the way he had hoped with time-share, which was the game-changer. Jan had a way of validating his wants while still prioritizing our daughter's best interests to the best of her ability. She covered things I hadn't considered and presented possible situations in our future, thus enabling us to create a thorough and effective parenting plan that has already come in so handy to reference and fall back on. Should any adjustments be needed in the future, I will definitely be pushing to come back for additional services."
Our divorced family has been working with Jan for almost a year. Jan was able take us from daily fights to twice monthly coaching. We are doing a much better job to understand our individual strengths/weaknesses and learn to accept the strengths/weaknesses of the other house to find balance for the kids. Things are by no means perfect, but her coaching has brought us both to the table and kept the conversation going when we otherwise would have exploded and caused more fighting. I have hope by continuing to work with Jan we will stay on the path of good communication for the benefits of our children.
Jan was exactly the forward-thinking, solution-oriented person I needed in my camp while navigating through a high-conflict divorce transition. She provided me with various tools on how to deal with a high-conflict ex for co-parenting, including the setting of firm boundaries, creating a clear path forward, and most importantly helping me remain child-focused. She is a fearless and dedicated coach, and helped me in ways that therapists and attorneys could not. Her tactics have served me extremely well.
