The Gippsland Counselling Group and Divorce Counselling
Divorce is never easy. It’s a stressful event that can produce a wide range of emotional responses within the immediate family. The trauma can affect the former couple’s children and friends for a long time to come.
Feelings of fear, guilt, anger and remorse are typical in a divorce situation, and can result in extreme emotional responses. Isolation and loneliness are also common. Parallels have often been drawn between the fallout of a divorce and losing a loved one to terminal illness or accident. Divorcees may even find themselves prone to remembering the good times once shared with the ex-partner, whilst overlooking the faults in the relationship that led to the breakup.
Don’t Worry, it’s Normal to Feel this Way
Grieving the loss of a relationship is normal. The Gippsland Counselling Group will help you negotiate the process with divorce counselling. We will enable you to move on and determine that there is a future after divorce. If necessary, we can also help you avoid relieving negative feelings by indulging in drugs or alcohol, which is a common pitfall.
By taking a step back and looking at the bigger picture, we will help you work through your negative feelings with a view towards knowing yourself better after the divorce experience. Reach out and talk to us today.
