Who is Polly Bloom?
Thank you for taking the time to visit my website! First of all, as a divorce coach I have a passion for helping individuals navigate the complexities of divorce with confidence. From my own personal experience, I know how tough separation from a loved one is. This has made me extremely committed to helping you find ways to over come the pain, and provide divorce counselling so that you can let go of your ex and move forward with your life. As a divorce coach, my aim is to make you better equipped to make informed decisions, minimize stress, and create a positive future.
Dealing with divorce, can seem impossible!
To help you I have created a tool kit of techniques and strategies, that I wish I’d had access to during my divorce. As a learning mentor, I have also supported primary school children, whilst going through my own divorce. After 27 years of marriage, it was a very traumatic experience and I struggled to comprehend what was happening and why? I felt stunned, paralysed and unable to react. I also realised that there wasn’t any specific help, to guide you through this situation and how to manage your emotions during this rollercoaster.
These experiences can help you build.
The hardest aspect can often be staying strong and supportive for your children, when you are struggling to cope yourself! I discovered back then that my then husband was a wolf in sheep’s clothing. A man who lives behind a mask of lies and deceit. He had led a double life, cheating on me with many women in the workplace. The betrayal was hard to bare. Who was this man I had been with since the age of 17? I didn’t recognise him. He was cold and extremely cruel to me. He certainly has a disordered personality and once I realised that, the pieces of the puzzle began to fall into place and help me with my recovery.
A new life, after divorce.
This is why I have taken my own experiences to help YOU! So many years on, I have taken back control and moved on to pastures new and the next, much happier, chapter in my life. I want to reassure you that there are many things you can do, including my divorce coaching to get back into the driving seat & create the new life that you want and deserve.
I often get asked, what is a divorce coach and why did I choose the name Polly Bloom for my coaching practice.
A divorce coach is a trained professional who supports individuals through a very harrowing and dramatic life changing event. A coach is a sounding board and thinking partner. They provide guidance and support whilst remaining objective.
As a child my mum used to sing the nursery rhyme “Polly put the kettle on” to cajole me into making her a cup of tea. It is a well known fact that tea helps to boost brain activity as well as your mood (no wonder I drink so much of it). It gives the sense of relaxation and well-being which is so important when faced with the stress and heartache of a separation/divorce.
As for ‘Bloom’ that came about because I felt that I had withered and wilted going through my own divorce. Quite frankly, I felt as though the wind had been knocked out of my sails. Now I feel revived, rejuvenated, fulfilled and very happy!
How can you bloom?
Believe in yourself
Learn to love yourself
Open up to new opportunities
Optimism is your friend
Move forward, don’t look back
Below, are just some of the activities that keep me motivated and enjoying life, as well as creating a outlet for my emotion and creativity. These can be done alone or with friends and are just examples of things you could do, to help overcome adversity.
