  • A better understanding of what went wrong in the relationship
  • A third-party perspective that ensures both parties are heard

Divorce Recovery – Counseling and Therapy in Columbia SC

Divorce is a loss. Whether it is expected or planned, it is still a loss that causes grief in some form. When we enter into a marriage, we do not plan on ending it in divorce. Even if divorce is the best choice for both partners, it is a significant change and usually calls for some reflection and recovery. After a divorce, undergoing counseling can be very beneficial and healing. When you partner with a Thriveworks Columbia SC counselor, you are taking the first step in recovering from your divorce. Reach out today to get started.

How Can a Divorce Affect Your Life?

The end of a marriage results in many changes. Living arrangements, finances, custody agreements, holiday traditions, even social circles are all likely to change. Even if the divorce was welcome and needed, all of these transitions can be overwhelming. If children are involved, they will have many questions and insecurities to process. As a parent, it can be frustrating and difficult to know how to answer all of these on your own. Being able to process your own emotions and feelings with a counselor can help you be better prepared to deal with your children’s questions and adjustments.

If you were part of the cause for the divorce, you may feel regret, confusion, and embarrassment. If you were blindsided by the divorce, you may feel shock, anger, and betrayal. In whatever type of divorce you find yourself, talking to a counselor can help make all the difference. We understand that this is a major life transition, and we have trained counselors ready to walk with you on this journey of discovery and adjustment. It may be a painful process, but it is very valuable for your emotional health.

Recovery Time After Divorce

There are many issues that may arise during the recovery period after a divorce or separation. Depending on how long your marriage lasted, this can help predict the length of recovery time. This is not always a direct ratio, but it can help you understand the time period that you should be kind to yourself and allow an adjustment period.

You may feel frustrated that you are not happy with this change in life, or moving on as quickly as you think you should. But it is important to remember to be kind to yourself. A major life adjustment like this is never easy. Taking the time to process your feelings, understand your emotional challenges, and making a plan for recovery, will help you move forward in the healthiest way possible.

From the moment I first walked through the doors, I have been treated with respect, and care. I feel so at ease with all the people I have met there. I cannot recommend this team of mental health care providers enough!

I was having a hard time with my partner and was ready to give up, but we took a chance after some research and found the help we really needed. Sometime you need someone to sit, listen, and guide you. Thank You!

It was difficult asking for help, but the staff and therapist ensured that I was comfortable and made it the best decision. I plan to continue going again.
