Most people don’t walk down the aisle preparing for an eventual divorce. Often when a marriage breaks up, the emotional and relational consequences are devastating for all involved.
Working with a counselor who is trained in divorce recovery, grief, and family systems can greatly help you work through your feelings and learn to trust yourself and others again. It can be difficult to talk about your divorce with family or friends, as they often “take sides” or feel confused themselves as to who they should communicate with. But having a confidential relationship with a counselor can provide a safe emotional space for you to process your thoughts and feelings.
“Aren’t all divorces painful? It seems other people who go through a divorce don’t seem to need counseling.”
In our experience, preventative mental health care can be very positive. Much like setting a broken bone so that it can heal properly, counseling post-divorce can help you find the right path for emotional and relational healing. Many of our clients recover from a divorce and feel stronger as they pursue relationships post-divorce. Journeys clients feel that they know themselves better, have learned to differentiate between safe and unsafe people, and can dare to trust others again.
We generally recommend scheduling a specialized assessment with a trusted Journeys counselor to evaluate what your child or family’s specific needs are, as well as determining best the options for treatment and more precise answers to the questions you may have about the process. The Journeys team strives to provide you with the best fit professionally, and will happily direct you to the counselor with the best personality, expertise and approach for your family.
