Dr Sue Palmer-Conn

The Divorce Doctor

I help couples mend, bend, or end their relationships, and individuals dealing with grief at every stage of their divorce.


Sue has 15 years coaching experience, is the best selling author of Plan the Marriage, not just the Wedding, and also offers discernment counselling with midlife professional couples and individuals.

After her divorce at the age of 50, following a 25-year marriage, she built a successful career in academia, rising from junior lecturer to senior manager of a university in 5 years. 


As part of her management training, she completed a coaching diploma and settled on divorce coaching in 2012. Since then, she has supported a countless number of clients across every stage of the divorce process. 

In 2021, after retiring from academia, Sue founded the Divorce Coaching Academy to train new divorce coaches to the gold standard. In 2023, she founded the Family Transition Company to raise awareness of the effects of divorce on employers, and now works with corporate organisations to support their employees. In May 2024, she will launch a 360 wellness plan for busy law professionals and their clients.

  • Master Professional Divorce Coach
  • Certified Discernment Counsellor
  • Certified Rebuilding Facilitator
