Life feels stuck in the same place. Inside it feels like rush hour traffic, so many thoughts, so many noises, it can be so hard to keep track. Your thoughts are not the kindest and feel scattered all over the place. Your emotions make it feel impossible to figure out the missing pieces. You’re trying to start new habits and make life changes, but you keep finding yourself back where you started. These messages from society and life creep in and it feels like there is something wrong with yourself and your brain. Here is the thing, there’s nothing wrong with you. Sometimes, we adapt in ways that work.Other times, our tools backfire.

Understanding that it can be difficult to take this step to wellness, I believe it is important to establish a trusting therapeutic relationship with the client as without this, it can be difficult to help implement change. I also believe that helping clients see their potential to implement change and resolve their issues is very empowering. Each client holds that potential within and they need encouragement and support as they begin to discover this and come to resolutions. Some clients may believe that their issues define who they are and stuggle to separate the two. New confidence can change this.

Divorce Therapists

How does therapy for people affected by a divorce work?

Individuals may feel a number of emotions following a divorce, such as shock, guilt, grief, anger, and fear. Therapists offer a non-judgmental space for individuals to talk about what they’ve experienced and process their emotions. Therapists will help clients develop coping strategies. They can also help a client rebuild their sense of self and self-worth and talk about what a happier future might look like.

What’s the most common type of therapy following a divorce?

There are several types of therapy that may be useful for divorce, including cognitive behavioral, acceptance and commitment, solution-focused brief, and mindfulness-based therapies. Many therapy types are talk-therapy based, which is typically the most popular option for individuals dealing with divorce. Cognitive behavioral therapy is a widely-used talk therapy, however, there’s no specific therapy type that’s designed to help people with divorce, and different types will work depending on the person.

When should an individual seek help due to a divorce?

When the feelings of a divorced individual, or an individual going through the process of divorce, begin to disrupt healthy daily functioning, it may be a good time to look into therapy. If a person finds that they are not performing at work due to problems with anxiety or motivation, if they’re no longer seeing friends due to feelings of shame, or if they’re not properly taking care of themselves as a result of depression, speaking to a professional could help.

How do you encourage someone to go to therapy due to a divorce?

It’s helpful to express concern and love for the individual while framing therapy as a tool for improving their life. Sharing how the individual appears to be suffering, and what effects it has on them or on their children, should be done with compassion and empathy. It may be useful to devise a game plan—breaking the process down into parts, such as finding a therapist, making appointments, and looking into insurance coverage.
