Mrs H kindly agreed to answer some questions about the work we have been doing together and her journey so far, which we hope will help explain how working with a divorce consultant can help before and during your divorce.
Her name is disguised and I have not used her photo, to protect her identity.
Here is Mrs H’s story in her own words….
What was going on for you that prompted you to get in touch with Rhiannon in the first place?
“I was having trouble in my relationship, saw Rhiannon’s advert in a magazine and kept it for months before contacting her. Once I did, we had an initial meeting which was incredibly useful but it was actually over a year later that I did actually separate and needed her advice on a more regular basis.”
What in particular did you want help with when you first started working with Rhiannon?
“In the first instance, I needed some advice on a Plan B option of my husband and I not being together; practically and financially what might that look and feel like.”
What did you find most helpful about working with Rhiannon in the early stages of your separation/divorce?
“Everything was helpful! I literally came to her with a “right, what do I do now?” type approach and she took me step by step through everything. It was just so reassuring in a potentially turbulent and extremely difficult time.”
How has working with Rhiannon helped you during the legal process of your divorce?
“It’s been brilliant so far; it’s incredible to have someone with such experience to advise you, I really do totally trust her.”
What have been any other benefits of working with Rhiannon?
“Just to know I have someone who is on my side that I can turn to if I have a question. She is also great at calling me out when I am being unreasonable – very useful!”
What would you say to someone considering getting a divorce as to how Rhiannon might be able to help them?
“Do it, don’t even think about it. My journey, though it is not complete yet, would have been so much more stressful without her – I cannot express the gratitude I have for her being in my life right now. She offers something that, however well meaning, no friend or relative can, even if they have been through a similar situation. She is invaluable. People regularly comment on how calm and together I am given what is happening and it is largely down to Rhiannon.”
Mrs H is doing remarkably well in what I know is a stressful situation for her. She is a pleasure to work with, maintaining a positive disposition and is sensible and logical in her decision-making. This will stand her in good stead for the next stages of formalising her separation and I am happy to continue to support her every step of the way.
