The experience of breaking up from a lover, partner, or spouse could be emotionally draining. It often creates an uncomfortable feeling of confusion as people struggle to get painful past memories out of their chests in order to embrace a peaceful, new life.

Common Symptoms of Relationship Breakups

Highlighted below are some common symptoms usually associated with relationship breakups:

  • Real physical discomfort
  • Sleeplessness
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Loss of motivation
  • Thoughts of suicide
  • Hopelessness, et cetera

This is why it is advisable to seek relationship breakup counseling immediately after this happens. It is somehow difficult dealing with the aftermath of a breakup alone without seeking useful help from an experienced breakup therapist.

Challenges People Usually Faced After Breakups:

  • Social challenge: Someone who has just gone through a relationship breakup may become socially awkward. They tend to withdrawal from social circles and avoid meeting friends, colleagues and relatives.
  • Financial challenge: Relationship breakups also involve money issue, and when couples or lovers separate, one or both of them may face financial hardship.
  • Mental challenges: This is the most dangerous challenge breakups bring on people. Separated couples, partners or lovers usually go through a period of mental meltdown. Some may develop psychological depression or unusual mood swings.

How Can a Qualified Relationship Counselor Help in this Case?

A qualified relationship counselor or therapist will undertake the following functions in order to provide therapy for breakup couples, partners and lovers:

  • Listens attentively to the affected party and offers practical suggestions
  • Provides real-time counseling based on the initial information gathered from the affected party
  • Keeps it real and offers advice that are concrete and actionable

  • Creates an atmosphere of positivity and self-confidence-boosting for the affected party.
