When two people vow to spend forever together—through the good and bad, in sickness and in health—they don’t imagine that their story will end in divorce. But the difficult reality is that sometimes marriage does end in divorce; in fact, 39% of spouses decide to separate. And for a variety of reasons: lack of intimacy, unmet expectations, financial strain, different priorities, and opposing visions for their future together. Whatever the reason, uncoupling can be difficult as the two individuals separate and can cause one to feel completely out of touch with their identity, wondering, “What now?” or “What’s next?”
“Divorce isn’t such a tragedy. A tragedy’s staying in an unhappy marriage, teaching your children the wrong things about love. Nobody ever died of divorce.” –Jennifer Weiner

How Can Counseling Help Me Through My Divorce?
In most instances, divorce isn’t pretty. It’s filled with conflict, tears, resistance, denial, or hatred, followed by another difficult path of adjusting to a new norm. That said, in summary, someone might seek divorce counseling to face these painful emotions. Working with a divorce counselor, one can learn to work through…
- Lonely feelings
- Contempt toward their ex-spouse
- Uncertainty about the future
- Challenges in co-parenting
- Identity crisis
- Depression or anxiety
This list outlines only a few challenges that can come with divorce. Whatever the obstacle is, a divorce counselor at Thriveworks Bensalem can help you to understand, address, and overcome the hurdle(s) before you. These experts understand just how taxing a divorce can be, and they are devoted to helping you live a happy, healthy life going forward.
What Does Divorce Recovery Look Like?
As with most challenges, there is no one way to recover from divorce. This process heavily depends on the cause(s) of divorce and the effects of the divorce on the individual. Some important differences include:
- Whether the separation was mutual or not
- If the individual understands the reason for separation or they are left bewildered
- Whether the individual experiences intense emotional pain as a result or not
- If the individual receives closure or if they are left wondering “why” or “what if”
- Whether the divorce was a sudden or gradual process
If you decide to work with a divorce counselor at Thriveworks Bensalem, your counselor will first understand the details of your divorce (such as those listed above) and then develop a process for recovering properly based on your needs. Their expertise, training, and experience will help them do so. Remember: Your divorce counselor’s goal is to help you recover and heal from your divorce. They will guide you toward a life of happiness again.
