Divorce counseling can help spouses, children and the larger family unit to heal from the trauma and stress, and prepare them to enter into their new roles with the energy and confidence required to build a happy future.
Divorce is rated by scientists as the second most stressful life event after death of a spouse (Holmes and Rahe, 1967). Stressful or contested divorces can result in severe emotional trauma that can cause lifelong damage if not healed.
Emotional Healing & Divorce Counseling
A number of stages of emotional healing need to take place after divorce. Family members, including and most especially children, may undergo feelings of denial, anger or depression.
Splitting a family unit is a difficult process. It is recommended that family members seek counseling to helping them adjust to the change in family structure and situation. Individual counseling sessions or larger family sessions may be recommended by a therapist, depending on the circumstances of the divorce.
