Starting Divorce counseling

What is Divorce counseling?

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.

Dover, DE—Divorce Recovery

A divorce is one of those complicated endings that are the start of something new while the closing chapter on something old. They can be both good and bad and are always a whirlwind of emotions and logistical issues. The decisions you have to make while in the midst of emotional turmoil can feel overwhelming, and rightfully so!

A divorce is particularly painful because it can feel like you’re going through it alone. Thriveworks Dover wants you to know that you don’t have to! We can be that steady hand walking beside you until this storm calms. Reach out to us if you think you could benefit from divorce counseling. We’re here to help.

What is Divorce Counseling?

Through our years of professional counseling, we’ve found three “stages” of divorce recovery work best.

First, the personal and emotional battles you may be fighting can be exhausting. Here you are, with a to-do list spanning pages long and decisions that give you a headache just thinking about, and you’re fighting for your mental health. Things like depression, anxiety, grief, anger, or insomnia are all normal reactions to something as jarring as a divorce. There is absolutely nothing wrong with any of these responses. You’re losing something that you might once have treasured, and there are many memories and feelings attached to that. Our Dover counselors understand every day will bring a new load of confusing emotions and questions. None of it is too big or too small for us, or for you!

Secondly, many people just need a liaison between you and your partner as the logistics of a divorce is sorted out. Our counselors can offer that cool, calm presence that works through any bumps before they can explode into something bigger. We can also help you both work on communication skills, for now and for the future.

Finally, the aftermath of the divorce can bring a new host of challenges. Most likely, a divorce changed your daily routine, social groups, financial budget, and so much more! This shift continues long after the official documents are signed. You deserve to be successful and happy in this new life, and our Thriveworks Dover counselors are more than happy to help you build it in the image you always imagined.

Is Divorce Counseling for me?

A good way to determine if you should give Thriveworks Dover a call is to look at your life before the divorce and look at it now. It will be different of course, and maybe not in all good ways. But has there been negative change in areas of your life that shouldn’t have been impacted very much? For example, a divorce might have taken too big of a toll if:

  • You feel like you’re drowning under all the pressure, stress, or high emotions
  • You have less pleasure in activities you once enjoyed
  • Sleep patterns have changed
  • You’re experiencing unusually high levels of anger, depression, or anxiety
  • Suicidal thoughts have come up
  • Withdrawal from social events and contact with friends/family has happened frequently
  • Eating habits have changed (loss of appetite or uncontrollable eating)
  • There’s an inability or impairment of ability to perform basic or essential tasks
  • The divorce process is “stuck”, or there’s an inability to effectively communicate with your partner.

This list is far from exhaustive, and if you have any concerns at all, it’s always worth giving Dover Thriveworks a call. We can talk you through the counseling process and if it’s right for you.

What About Co-Parenting?

If you have kids, co-parenting is probably on your mind. Is there anyway to prepare for this? Or learn it while you are in the midst of it? Yes! It is not easy learning a new style of parenting, especially after relationships may have been strained by the divorce. But Thriveworks Dover will work with both parents to ensure the best parenting outcome.

You are not a bad parent for needing some extra guidance with co-parenting. Most people do! We can be that liaison between parents, answer any questions, and teach you some vital skills along the way. Your role as a parent is just as important now as it was before a divorce, so let’s make sure your relationship with your children is just as strong.

I’ve been searching for the right fit. Had almost given up after 2 unsuccessful relationships with other counselors in the last year. Thriveworks makes scheduling easy, takes my insurance (Aetna), and offers quality, invested care. For the first time, I look forward to counseling sessions and feel so much better after! Hend Salah is helping me see things differently and get my life back on track.
