Hope for Divorce Recovery Through Therapy and Counseling- Franklin, MA

No one enters a marriage believing that the marriage will end in divorce. The expectation is that the commitment to the relationship will be forever. However, this isn’t always the case and that’s okay.

Trying to control all the valuables that seem to be spinning out of control is not a task to take on alone. Talking to a professional who has had training and experience helping people navigate through these difficult times can be vital is surviving through similar ordeals. The counselors and therapists at Thriveworks Franklin help in divorce recovery understanding the dangers and opportunities involved in ending a marriage.

What Is the Process of Divorce Recovery?

Divorce results in many life changes and stressors that may trigger a sense of loss and grief. There is, of course, the loss of the relationship itself. However, there are multiple number of other changes that may include:

  • Changed extended family relationships
  • Lost/changed friendships
  • Shifting to co-parenting or single parenting
  • Loss of a home
  • Reduced standard of living

Someone going through this cycle can experience denial, anger, shock, sadness, guilt, bargaining, or fear. While one may recover from these more detrimental emotions with the passage of time, having a professional to help guide you through the grieving process can result in an experience of personal growth.

What Is the Typical Duration of this Healing Process?

Not everyone goes through the process the same way so the length of time for recovery from divorce varies as well. Studies have indicated different situations and conditions that may affect how long the recovery process will take. These factors include:

  • The suddenness of the change;
  • Whether one spouse did not realize the marriage was in danger;
  • The spouses age, mental and physical status;
  • Personality strengths and weaknesses;
  • If and how many children may be involved;
  • Whether infidelity was a factor in the breakup of the marriage;
  • The present financial situation of the couple;
  • The length of time the couple has already been together;
  • If one or both spouses have already developed other relationships.

The healing process following a divorce is difficult. There is a flood of mixed emotions, both support and criticism from others, and a tendency to judge ourselves in ways that may provoke shame and self-doubt. On our own it may be difficult to discern what decisions and actions will bring healing and even growth or which decisions will simply prolong the pain. Mistakes will happen. But input from a trained therapist can help us learn from those mistakes and take the difficult process of divorce recovery and turn it into opportunities for growth and well-being.
