28 Sep EP201 – Lessons from a Divorce Coach for Women | Nina Thiara
Divorces, more often than not, paint a picture of families and/or couples being ripped apart – financial battles for alimony, custody issues and child support.
This episode’s guest is Nina Thiara of Divorce to Happiness. Nina is a divorce coach – quite an ominous title if you ask me. Having experienced traumatic experiences in her life and going through a divorce, Nina identified the need for women to have some form of support and guidance during the often long process of divorce.
Given the less than favorable perception of divorce, I knew I was kinda walking on eggshells when I decided to pursue this episode. Nina and I did not always see eye-to-eye, but I respect the interesting perspective she provided during our conversation.
Specific topics we touched on in our discussion include:
⦁ How Nina’s personal story motivated her to guide and support other women as a divorce coach (01:52; 19:06).
⦁ The story and fears that divorce coaches consider and address that are ignored by divorce lawyers (04:07).
⦁ How inner work made her understand and fix the issues with her physical and mental health, and her marriage (06:38; 13:56).
⦁ How fear of leaving manifests in relationships (10:24).
⦁ The different types of fears felt by people who stay in unhappy relationships (13:01).
⦁ Her insights on the institution of marriage, being in relationships, and managing finances in relationships (19:49).
⦁ How she dealt with her divorce, child support, and resolving the debts she accumulated with her ex-husband as a couple (22:21).
⦁ The different resources available to help and support women going through a divorce (25:53).
⦁ How pain and lack of compassion allow greed to step in amidst divorce (27:39).
⦁ Why child custody is an issue and how kids are used as a control tactic (32:55).
⦁ The importance of understanding a client’s history (35:21).
⦁ Working with people who are unaware of the disparity in their public persona and their subconscious/unconscious self (40:46).
⦁ The different challenges she’s helped her clients with (45:03).
My lack of knowledge and experience in divorce had me really deep-diving into the whys and hows of it. I hope our conversation is able to shed light on the behind-the-scenes of divorce that people rarely pay attention to.
I know a lot of people will benefit from the insights and resources provided in this episode and I encourage you to share it with anyone who might need it.
