Episode #93

Navigating a break-up with Alice McDonald

Gabrielle Treanor


Alice Mcdonald is a Separation and Divorce Coach who helps women with older teens and adult children to navigate their break-up and create their new future. As you’d think that calm and joy are in short supply during the breakdown of a relationship it was really interesting to hear about Alice’s experience and advice.

In this episode we discuss:

  • The double whammy women go through with losing their identity
  • Giving yourself permission
  • Rediscovering what you want and enjoy 
  • Finding pockets of joy amidst the upset and overwhelm


  • Register for my FREE Calm Comfort restorative workshop here happening on Wednesday 15 December (get the recording when you sign up)
  • This conversation was first aired on my new radio show – The Calm & Joy show on Yowah Radio – on every Sunday 4-6pm UK time, find out more here
  • You can connect with Alice McDonald on her website here
