Dealing with a divorce is one of the big stress creators in life. Whilst you may be saying goodbye to a painful and difficult situation, you will have other stressful events to deal with. Anger, guilt, sadness, anxiety; these entire feelings can amalgamate together causing your stress levels to rocket. If children are involved then the problems are going to be even greater.
This is where therapy for a divorce can help. Whether you want counselling to help keep your marriage together or to help you get through the divorce process, a therapist can help with either individual consultations or therapy for couples.
There is no way of avoiding the traumas of divorce. You will find yourself pulled in all directions, physically, emotionally and financially. A trained divorce therapist can break the problems down into manageable sections, helping you to work through your feelings and enable you to view your position from a different perspective.
At the same time, you can find out more about yourself, what went wrong with your relationship and how you can move forward in a more positive way. Your divorce counsellor can also act as a mediator, reducing hostility and damage. If you are struggling to sort out new living arrangements, financial outgoings and care of children, they can also help with this.
Depending upon the age of your children, they may also want to be included. If they are feeling torn apart and confused, saddened at the thought of choosing one parent over another, their worries need to be resolved too. If they have been privy to many arguments and ongoing aggression, they may feel somehow to blame and this position needs to be clarified.
