What is a Divorce Doula?

Everyone seems to have heard of a doula who offers support before, during and after childbirth. “What is this new concept of a divorce doula?”, is what I asked myself when I first heard this term.

Apparently a divorce doula is a ‘secret weapon’ or a ‘guardian angel’. A person who fills in the gap of a Solicitor, Therapist and Mediator and provides support before, during and after a divorce. A divorce doula does not necessarily have to have any formal qualifications.

Well here at Brethertons this is not a new role. We recognise that divorce can often be devastating, bring on anxiety and be one of the worst times in a person’s life. This is why we offer a service that mirrors that of a divorce doula. All our Solicitors bring empathy and compassion into what can be a difficult time. We offer a unique bespoke service like no other, providing clients with the option to speak free of charge to our in house consultant, Elizabeth Headley. Liz is a fully qualified relationship therapist with over 20 years working with individuals, couples and families, 12 of those years were spent at Relate, offering emotional support and counselling to both adults and children who may be going through relationship and family breakdown or experiencing relationship problems.
