Divorce Support and Counseling
Dealing with Divorce
Whether you are the person who initiated the divorce, or not, dealing with divorce is difficult. It’s emotionally draining and brings up so many feelings. It can be overwhelming to deal with that alone. It’s normal to feel a whole range of emotions from sadness, to anger, to apathy, to relief. Ending a romantic relationship is a painful event. You are mourning the loss of the life and relationship you hoped to have.
Counseling is a great choice to help you cope with divorce and receive divorce support. It is a safe place where you can express and understand your emotions. In counseling you can learn new coping strategies for dealing with divorce that will help you recover and feel like yourself again. Working with a therapist can help you gain the emotional strength you need and give you tools that will facilitate this life transition.
Sometimes divorce counseling or divorce support is similar to individual therapy in which one person attends alone. Others prefer to attend with their spouse, either to make sure that divorce is the right decision for them, or to learn how to transition their relationship into an amicable co-parenting situation.
If you have children, divorce counseling will also teach you how to help your children cope with divorce, and how to co-parent with your ex without war. Counseling and divorce support is also available for children, to help them adjust to this change in their family.
What to do After Divorce
Often, people feel a little disoriented after divorce. They are unsure of what to do next, or how to rebuild their lives and identity. Some people have difficulty experiencing joy again. Counseling is useful in helping you adjust to the changes you have gone through, and learn how to deal with the emotions you are still having. Divorce support helps you regain your balance and move forward!
