Techniques Learned in Breakup Counseling

Finding closure and getting back into experiencing life to its full potential after a devastating breakup. The therapists at Thriveworks Columbus Polaris office are compassionate and can provide the help that is necessary after an intense breakup. People want a fresh start after a breakup, and a counselor can teach you some techniques that can help you through this process. These are some techniques that counselors teach in breakup counseling:

  1. Encouraging Self-Confidence: After a breakup, it’s reasonable to take a hit to your self-esteem. This blow can be especially true in more difficult relationships and breakups, including ones caused by infidelity. The therapist can help by offering ways to refocus yourself on what makes you unique and special.
  2. Encourage Self-Care: Self-care can be one of the most important things to help people get through a breakup. Self-care means focusing on something that will make you feel physically and mentally healthier. Try meditation or visiting a spa day. A therapist can offer suggestions on ways to help you indulge in self-care.
  3. Avoiding Self-Destructive Behavior: Sometimes, after breakups, people tend towards risky and self-destructive behavior like excessive drinking or using drugs. It’s essential to avoid going down this path because you may find yourself in even more of a downward spiral that’s harder from which to recover. A therapist can help you find ways to channel your impulses to more constructive and positive behaviors.
  4. Dealing with Guilt and Inadequacy: Breakups can leave people full of guilt and feeling not good enough. A counselor will help by showing ways that you have grown from the relationship and breakup. They can point out the positives of the breakup or give a fresh perspective of the lessons learned and how to apply them to future relationships.
  5. Use Alone Time Positively: Instead of focusing on being alone after a breakup, a therapist can show you how to take the time for self-reflection, and this is where people learn how to live independently rather than as part of a couple. Goals and priorities may have been changed since the breakup. You may have discovered new interests you never considered before.

The right techniques can be essential in helping anyone get over their breakup. A counselor at Thriveworks Columbus Polaris, can work closely with clients to determine what the best approaches are to get the best possible results.
