Starting Breakup therapy

What is Breakup therapy?

Breakup therapy from our Thriveworks Baltimore therapists helps people process the loss that comes with a breakup. In addition, it can help them to better understand what was wrong as well as what was right in their relationship so that they're able to move forward.

How does Breakup therapy work?

Breakup therapy works by offering a safe space for people to explore the pain and changes that can accompany a breakup. It also works by equipping individuals with healthy coping mechanisms such as self-reflection and relaxation techniques in replace of harmful (or maladaptive) coping mechanisms.

Is Breakup therapy conducted in person or online?

Breakup therapy from the therapists at Thriveworks in Baltimore, MD is conducted both in person and online by video. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does Breakup therapy last?

The amount of breakup therapy sessions will vary from one person to the next, depending on their specific needs. However, it typically lasts for several weeks or months.

Need more help deciding?

Breakups happen, but sometimes it may be tough to deal with the problems that come after that. It is usually a good move to see a relationship counselor or therapist, such as a professional from our Thriveworks Baltimore Counseling team, if you are experiencing any of the post-breakup symptoms highlighted below:

  • Irregular sleep or lack of enough sleep
  • Feeling mentally down or depressed
  • Lack of motivation
  • Feeling hopeless and dejected
  • Thinking that the whole world hates you
  • Anxiety or being critically nervous

It may be impossible to confront these enormous problems on your own. Enlisting the assistance of an experienced relationship therapist may help reduce the burdens of a breakup on you. Here are some of what a trained relationship therapist can do to make your life better, happier and more enriching:

  • By taking your case very seriously and giving you all the necessary attention you needed
  • By making suggestions about some concrete steps you can undertake in winning your life back
  • By encouraging you to take proactive actions that will return your self-confidence, happiness and mental sharpness
  • By working closely with you to guarantee your full recovery within a specified period of time
  • By creating an environment for smooth re-integration into the society so that you can start a new relationship without fear and worries

Failure to take this issue seriously may result in more problematic experiences: In some situations, breakups have forced some people to develop social problems like withdrawal, lack of proper social interaction or poor communication ability. On a more serious note, breakups can also cause life-threatening mental illnesses like depression, anxiety disorder and emotional imbalance. On top of these concerns, a breakup, if not properly managed, can throw either of the parties involved into financial hardship. This is because the pool of resources they had both enjoyed together would vanish once their separation is finalized.

To mitigate the effects of the issues highlighted above, it is imperative that you work closely with a trained and experienced relationship therapist. Give us a call today to schedule a consultation that will energize you to deal with all the uncomfortable experiences breakup has brought into your life.

In these tense and uncertain times, it’s really helpful to be able to talk to someone who I know shares similar experiences, can understand where I’m coming from, and can help me understand how to do the best I can to improve myself in my circumstances. Tia is a great listener with a gentle, calming demeanor. She knows how to laugh and how to really listen. She’s really helped me through some tough times and encouraged me throughout. Don’t know what I’d do without her!

As first-generation immigrants we have a touch time raising kids in US. Being caught between two different cultures, our teenager daughter intuitively rejects parents' culture and is often unrespectful toward parents and her sibling. But we as parents have no relatives in US for counseling. Talking to Sandra has been very helpful as she instructed us how to communicate with our confused teenager, how to guide her through the difficult time. Thank you, Sandy!
