Starting Breakup therapy

What is breakup therapy?

Breakup therapy from our Thriveworks Fredericksburg therapists helps people process the loss that comes with a breakup. In addition, it can help them to better understand what was wrong as well as what was right in their relationship so that they’re able to move forward.

How does breakup therapy work?

Breakup therapy works by offering a safe space for people to explore the pain and changes that can accompany a breakup. It also works by equipping individuals with healthy coping mechanisms such as self-reflection and relaxation techniques to replace harmful (or maladaptive) coping mechanisms.

Is breakup therapy conducted in person or online?

Breakup therapy from the therapists at Thriveworks in Fredericksburg, VA is conducted both in person and online by video. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does breakup therapy last?

The amount of breakup therapy sessions will vary from one person to the next, depending on their specific needs. However, it typically lasts for several weeks or months.

Counseling and Therapy for Breakups – Therapists in Fredericksburg, VA

Is this you? You have just experienced an exasperating breakup from your partner, lover or spouse and you are badly adjusting to your new life? You wonder if everything you are going through is normal or not. Here is the good news: you are not alone in this condition.

Several persons who went through energy-sapping breakups often feel like that. And most, if not all of them, seek help and guidance from an experienced relationship counselor or therapist. Described below are some common symptoms associated with relationship breakups:

  • Not getting regular sleep or experiencing acute insomnia
  • Feeling anxious and restless
  • Suffering from depression
  • Not feeling motivated to do anything—whether doing one’s job or participating in social events
  • Losing hope about the future and having recurrent doubts about oneself
  • Lacking the ability to connect socially with other people

It is the responsibility of an experienced relationship counselor or therapist to guide you through the process of full recovery by following some of the steps outlined below:

  • Taking time to listen attentively to all the details of your pre- and post-breakup experiences
  • Offering real-time practical advice based on the information that has been previously obtained from you
  • Creating a comfortable atmosphere for you to clearly express yourself and feel confident once again
  • Helping you get rid of guilt and self-accusation
  • Establishing a favorable circumstance for you to break the ice of making successful and productive relationships

It is sad to notice that some persons who went through emotionally disturbing breakups often try to face all these challenges on their own. This is not just time-wasting but it is also ineffective.
There are social, financial and mental challenges accompanying breakups: While it is easier to confront social and financial challenges alone, mental challenges like depression, anxiety and other disorders require the help of a trained relationship counselor. Social challenge, like withdrawing from your friends and colleagues may be dealt with gradually. And financial difficulties that often follow a breakup may soften sooner or later if you can work very hard. But it requires meeting with a professional therapist to successfully deal with your mental challenges.

Ann is a great listener, but she is also helpful with strategies for coping and communicating. She does more than "validate feelings."

I had the best luck with finding Krista! She helped me through so much. The doctors were quick to put me on several medications which made me feel worse with my anxiety and depression. So she helped me find different natural ways of coping. She had the best advice, it was honestly kind of a sad day when I realized I didn’t need her anymore. But I know who I’m going back to if I ever need someone to talk to again! Krista if you see this please know you helped save my life! Thank you!

But Thriveworks Fredericksburg has the most comfortable atmosphere, my counselor is Amazing, and the staff is professional every time I call to schedule my recurring appts! If you need help Thriveworks Fredericksburg is the place to call! All I can say is kudos to Aimee K! Thank you!!

Happy with everything except the 48 hr cancellation policy. 24hrs is pretty standard and more feasible when you have children.

I’m very relieved to have finally started therapy sessions with Robert. It’s taken me a while to make this move towards dealing with some outstanding hurts. I’m certain I’ve come to the right place.
