On Behalf of | Sep 20, 2022 | Divorce |

Many people go through a divorce. While some people can end their relationship and move on with their lives, you may not have that ease.

When people struggle with major changes in their lives, such as divorce, they may seek therapy. There are many different fields of counseling to support your special case. You may need to consider your options for counseling:

1. Post-separation and grief therapy

There may be a lot that changes after your divorce. This could cause serious emotional difficulty while you adjust to your new life.

Seeking out post-separation counseling or a therapist who specializes in grief and loss may help introduce you to a new life after divorce. They may be able to quickly get you back on your feet and teach you methods of working with mood swings and depression.

2. Post-traumatic issues due to infidelity

You may be going through a divorce because your spouse cheated on you – this could lead to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). 

The impact your spouse left on you by cheating could cause major trust issues in future relationships. PTSD can often be treated with the right counselor who specializes in infidelity cases.

3. Trauma support therapy

Some marriages don’t end happily. Your marriage may have been riddled with emotional, physical or financial abuse (or a combination of all three). Trauma can lead to many difficulties, such as anxiety and depression, that can make it difficult to rebuild your life. 

Therapy can be expensive, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t seek it out during a divorce. You may need to reach out for legal help when seeking support throughout your divorce.
