Resilience in Transition: A Journey of Healing and Growth

Nanette Murphy, a certified divorce and health coach who specializes in guiding women through the divorce journey. Nanette's personal experience and dedication to helping others have made her an expert in this field. In the previous sections of the transcript, Nanette shared her own story of resilience and how she found her purpose in helping women navigate the challenging process of divorce. Now, let's go deeper into the stages of this journey and the strategies Nanette recommends for finding healing and moving forward.

The Four Stages of the Divorce

Nanette breaks down the divorce journey into four stages: contemplation, preparation, navigating the process, and finding what's next. Each stage requires different approaches and support. Let's explore these stages and the strategies Nanette suggests for overcoming the challenges they present.

Stage 1: Contemplation

During the contemplation stage, a woman may be considering whether to proceed with a divorce. It is essential to prioritize self-care during this phase. Nanette emphasizes the importance of setting boundaries and focusing on emotional well-being. Here are some strategies she recommends:

Practice self-care: Take time for yourself and engage in activities that bring you joy and peace. This could include meditation, journaling, or simply going for a walk with nature.

Seek support: Find a trusted confidant or a divorce coach who can provide unbiased guidance and support as you navigate your emotions and thoughts.

Build self-worth: Recognize your value and remind yourself that your worth is not defined by your marital status. Explore activities and hobbies that help you rediscover your passions and strengths.

Stage 2: Preparation

Once the decision to proceed with a divorce has been made, the preparation stage begins. This is the time to gather information, understand your financial situation, and ensure you are ready for the legal process. Nanette suggests the following strategies during this stage:

Hire a divorce coach: Before consulting a lawyer, consider working with a divorce coach who can help you navigate the emotional and practical aspects of the divorce. They can guide you in making informed decisions and ensure you are prepared for what lies ahead.

Consult a financial advisor: Many women fear the financial implications of divorce. Seek the expertise of a certified divorce financial advisor who can help you understand your financial options and plan for your future.

Take control of your finances: Open your own bank account, establish credit in your name, and familiarize yourself with your financial assets and liabilities. This will empower you to make informed decisions during the divorce process.

Stage 3: Navigating the Process

The third stage involves navigating the legal process of divorce, which can be overwhelming and emotionally challenging. Nanette acknowledges the fear of being alone, concerns about children, and the financial worries that often arise during this stage. Here are some strategies she recommends:

Seek emotional support: Lean on a divorce coach or therapist who can provide guidance and help you process your emotions. They can also help you set boundaries with friends and family members who may have preconceived notions or biases.

Give back to your community: Volunteering and engaging in acts of kindness can be incredibly healing. By helping others, you gain perspective and find strength in supporting those in need.

Practice self-reflection: Create a space in your home where you can find tranquility and reflect on your journey. Engage in activities such as prayer, meditation, or journaling to foster self-awareness and embrace the present moment.

Stage 4: Finding What's Next

Once the divorce is finalized, it's time to focus on the future and discover your new path. Nanette encourages women to embrace personal growth and explore new possibilities. Here are some strategies she suggests:

Embrace self-care: Nurture your physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Treat yourself to small acts of self-love, such as buying a new blouse or trying a new lipstick color.

Engage in personal development: Take courses, attend workshops, or join support groups that align with your interests and goals. This will help you expand your knowledge and skills, opening doors to new opportunities.

Give back to others: Continuing to give back to your community can be a source of fulfillment and purpose. Consider volunteering or supporting causes that resonate with you.



The journey of divorce is undoubtedly challenging, but with resilience and support, it is possible to find healing and growth. Nanette Murphy's expertise and personal experience make her a valuable resource for women going through this journey. By prioritizing self-care, seeking guidance, and embracing personal growth, women can navigate the divorce process with strength and resilience. Remember, healing is an active process that requires time and self-reflection. By taking one step at a time, you can create a new chapter filled with hope and possibilities.
