Thank you for being here.

Have you separated from your partner to find freedom, yet realise you still feel trapped?

Do you wish you could avoid your ex completely but can’t because you have children you feel responsible for?

Does your ex seem impossible to deal with?

Are you still with you partner - seriously considering separating but not sure if it is the right thing to do?

Do you feel like the only way forward to be a doormat?

Don’t give up. Get curious! The light at the end of the tunnel may be brighter and close than you realise. Let’s meet! Buy me a coffee and we’ll have a chat to see what I can do for you.

A Special Message for Men…

It’s not easy being a man. You may feel you are expected to be able to handle everything – all the stresses of life, and somehow do this without support. You may feel all alone in your struggle but I assure you, you are not. It is very common for men to feel overwhelmed, lost, powerless (to name but a few).

Maybe you have already sought help and discovered that when it comes to matters of separation, the world seems to be heavily biased towards helping women. There is a lot of support out there for women but not so much for men and it takes a brave man to reach out for help.

You have come to the right place. Sometimes you need something a little different to the mainstream help available such as seeking the help of psychologists, counsellors or lawyers. I am able to offer you something which you will not be able to find anywhere else. In fact, my favourite clients are the ones who feel like they have tried everything and still haven’t found what they need.

If you have not met me yet, you have not tried everything. Please help me help you. Let’s turn your overwhelm into underwhelm. Let’s find where you are stuck and unstick you. Let’s make the impossible possible.

You may have some regrets at the moment but you will not regret getting in touch with me.

It’s coffee time!


Meet Monique Neal – Separation Strategist and founder of Cornerstone Discovery

I want you to imagine you’re outside on a scorching hot summer’s day. The sun is beating down upon you and you have been slaving away digging in your garden for 3 straight hours. You feel exhausted and parched.

Fortunately for you… it’s break time! Out comes the ice. Out comes the drink. CHI!!! *** Mmmm… Cool…. Bubbly…. Refreshing! That is how most people describe me.

I am enthusiastic and curious. I love learning and growing and have happily invested a lot of time and money in Personal Development. I joined Toastmasters when I was 21 years old and am currently the President of the Glenfield Toastmasters Club. Choosing to be part of Toastmasters has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. It has given me confidence to express myself and I have developed leadership skills along the way.

I have a desire to lead people to the fruition of their desires the easiest and fastest way possible. I love puzzles and challenges and believe no "problem" comes without a solution. I find solutions and enjoy every minute of the search.

I love win win situations and easily create them.


What is a Separation Strategist?


/ˈstratɪdʒi/ - a plan of action designed to achieve a long-term or overall aim.


/ˈstratədʒɪst/ - a person skilled in planning action or policy, especially in war or politics.

Interestingly enough, I am not a fan of war or politics. However, it does often seem that these can creep into a marriage. I am particularly fond of the mindset of Sun Tzu, author of the book “The Art of War”.

My three favourite quotes of his are:

  • 1. The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.
  • 2. Know thy self, know thy enemy. A thousand battles, a thousand victories.
  • 3. Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win.

The method I use to help clients find freedom (whether with a partner or separated) is based on awareness – awareness of yourself and awareness of your partner/ex partner. Knowledge is power. I help you uncover unknowns. Trying to complete a puzzle when you have pieces missing is a futile exercise. Come and see me and together we can turn your puzzle into a pleasant picture.

As a separation strategist I look at what we are dealing with and devise a strategy which suits your particular situation. I doubt you will find answers anywhere else as precise and tailormade as the ones I will find for you.

If you have had enough, it is time to take action. I am only a phone call or an email away.
