Starting Divorce counseling

What is Divorce counseling?

Thriveworks divorce counseling in Bensalem, PA can help couples understand if they want to divorce or help them move forward post-divorce. Either way, it helps them navigate conflicts and/or tough conversations that pertain to their relationship and individual selves.

How does Divorce counseling work?

Divorce counseling at Thriveworks is tailored to each couple and the individuals that make up that couple. It works by offering…

  • Tools to work through conflicts and better manage negative feelings
  • Guidance in making the right decision if you're still in the process of considering divorce
  • Help with different stages of the divorce and separation process
  • A better understanding of what went wrong in the relationship
  • A third party perpsective that ensures both parties are heard

Is Divorce counseling conducted in person or online?

Divorce counseling at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and online by video. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does Divorce counseling last?

The amount of divorce counseling 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?

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

Divorce counselors specialize in helping people to answer these and other unnerving questions. If you are going through a divorce and you’re wondering what’s next or have other important questions to explore in the wake of your separation, a divorce counselor can prove valuable. Bring these difficult questions to a divorce counselor or psychologist at Thriveworks Bensalem.

Here at Thriveworks Bensalem, our caring, skilled professionals dedicate their lives to providing their clients with premium mental health care. In your case, this might mean talking through your divorce, understanding what led to your uncoupling, and answering those intimidating questions we mentioned above. Additionally, when you call to schedule, you’ll find that our providers have flexible schedules and offer a range of appointments, including evenings and weekends. Our goal is to get you the help you need, when you need it. Call Thriveworks Bensalem today at (215) 874-8002 to get started.

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.

Cassie is an exceptional therapist! She was extremely understanding throughout and approached my issues in a way that made me feel heard. Cassie has many skills and helped me with coping strategies to get me through my challenges. I do not know how I would have got to where I am now without her support.

I wasn't sure what to expect from therapy, but Jamie put me at ease right away. She is a generous listener who let me explain my situation and my feelings about it without any kind of judgement. She patiently led me through the difficult path of healing, giving me concrete steps to take to process what happened and to move forward. I would recommend her to anyone, no question.

Jamie walked with me through a very difficult period in parenting a child with a chronic illness. She listens well, is compassionate, and helped me reframe my thinking when I was particularly discouraged and stuck. The fact that she could also integrate faith into our conversations made all the difference. I highly recommend working with Jamie!

First met frank in the mid 80's as he came to Phoenix Arizona as a certified surgical technologist & worked with him there in a level 1 trauma center. It wasn't much after his stay in Phoenix he returned to Philadelphia where he then became Philadelphia fire fighter, and his effort of doing that excelled to peaking position as Captain for the PFD. As a friend of Frank through all his dedication and motivation to higher education , that his commitment & dedication hadn't already been in progress . But as a friend to see what he has done and become to his educate himself to helping people in the community is second to none. But more than anything he's a great person and to have him as my friend all these years seen what he's done to keep helping people in the private sector, bravo frank !
