Divorce Counseling

What is Divorce Counseling?

 

Getting divorced is a hard process even if we are the one who initiates it. The statistics are over 50% of people who get divorced remarry but over 65% of second marriages end in divorce.

It’s important to help couples set ground rules for constructive ways to engage and get along when going through the divorce process. It’s imperative to work together in a peaceful manner especially, when children are involved.

Children suffer when there is contention and divorce battles are difficult and chaotic. Children can be negatively affected and grow up with poor role modeling and sad memories.

Parents who are divorcing want to join in a collaborative process and co-parent by modeling peaceful negotiation and valuable life skills.

Through the divorce counseling process, the couple works on communication and learning healthy dialogue so they can move from contention to peaceful talks and negotiation.

The couple works on closure which is another important part of the process. It’s important to experience the range of emotions from the ending and loss of the relationship/marriage.

So what does it mean to mourn the loss?

Breakups can be difficult depending on the length of time and emotional investment into the relationship. The thoughts and feelings that people generally experience may be feelings of rejection, sadness, anger, guilt and other feelings that are associated with the grieving process.

My Approach

I help clients going through the divorce process work through this mourning and healing process and get to a place of acceptance. This assists the couple to emotionally move forward so they could peacefully co-parent and work together in constructive ways.

It is necessary to understand past relationships in order to be more prepared and ready to take action in finding love again. Once you are feeling more centered and focused on what you do want in a partner, and aware of the patterns in your past relationships, you may be ready for a new partnership.

I work with you to ensure you are attracting a new relationship based on lessons learned from your past. I help you grow and evolve which allows you to attract a healthier partner.
