227: Navigating Divorce & Parenting with Karen McMahon

By February 28, 2023November 7th, 2023Mastermind Parenting Podcast

“Transform your relationship into a healthy, mindful and conscious home for your children – learn to mend, not end.”

Karen McMahon is a certified relationship and divorce coach and founder of Journey Beyond Divorce. She has been helping men and women around the world to become calm, clear, and confident as they navigate divorce since 2010.

Karen experienced the difficulty of navigating a divorce and parenting when her own marriage ended. She came to understand that the conversation was never about the relationship, but instead, it was the relationship itself. With the support of professionals, Karen realized that she had an equal part in the conflict, and she needed to take responsibility for that. She was able to build her self-confidence, find the resources and support she needed, and ultimately make the best decision for her and her children. Karen emerged from her divorce experience empowered and stronger, and now encourages others to take the same journey.

In this episode, you will learn the following:

  1. How can you know when it’s time to mend or end your marriage?
  2. What can you do to ensure you are making an empowered decision about your marriage?
  3. How can you learn to navigate a high conflict divorce in an emotionally regulated way?

And much more!
