Divorce Recovery

Dallas Counseling for Divorce Recovery

Divorce ranks among one of the most stressful events a person can experience, not only for the couple going through it but also for their families. Children are especially vulnerable to the potential fallout of divorce; children who are very young may not even understand the concept.

Though no one enters a lifetime commitment with

 the expectation of splitting up, divorce is an unfortunate reality for about half of all relationships. A person may not be able to salvage his or her relationship, but can begin to put back together the pieces through divorce recovery. Because divorce is often an emotional and financial battleground, it is difficult to remain objective about the process. Talking through the experience with a licensed therapist can be an extremely useful tool in divorce recovery.

Divorce Recovery for Adults. Intense and confusing emotions are normal when a relationship ends in divorce or separation. These emotions might include:
·        grief
·        anger
·        loneliness
·        anxiety
·        fears
·        concerns about parenting
·        questions of identity

Counseling will help you to process your experience and cope with the pain and stress of divorce. Your therapist will work with you to gain understanding of yourself and your relationship with your partner.  Divorce recovery counseling can facilitate the transition to the new way of life where you feel more empowered, fulfilled, and independent.
 
Divorce Recovery for Children. Some children struggle deeply with separation and divorce, while other children seem to recover quickly. No matter how they react initially, all children are affected by divorce. Divorce can be stressful, confusing, and often sad for children. No matter their age, children may feel uncertain about what life will be like or angry about the changes happening in the family. Divorce isn’t easy for anyone, but therapy can help make the process and its effects less painful for children.

During the process of therapy, children learn to understand their feelings, express their emotions appropriately, feel better about themselves and their family, and develop coping skills to help them through tough times. Therapy can help minimize and even eliminate short and long-term effects divorce can have on children’s emotional health.

As a parent, it’s normal to feel uncertain about how to give your children the right support through your divorce or separation. Providing stability in the home and attending to children’s physical and emotional needs with a reassuring, positive attitude can help children cope with the challenges of divorce. You can help your children feel loved, confident, and strong.
