Few parents are prepared to deal with the aftermath of the loss of a partner, whether from divorce, separation death or regardless of the cause. Single parenting has insurmountable challenges that can cause great stress and at times hardship. However, the flip side, single parenting also has its huge joys and rewards.

In this episode, I have a conversation with Cathy Courtenay in which she shares her experience of being a single parent. Cathy is a relational coach and facilitator. She works with both couples and individuals who are striving to find deeper connection and intimacy both with themselves and each other. She helps her clients to see the patterns of relating that are holding them back from what they truly desire. Cathy also facilitates the practice of the Circling Method where she creates a safe space for people where they can stand in their truth and experience what is real for them. Responding to life’s call to find truth, Cathy is committed to a mission of helping uplift humanity and develop profound compassion and empathy in the world.


“Creating the environment of emotional safety for your kids is paramount” 

- Cathy Courtenay
