Starting Breakup therapy

What is Breakup therapy?

Breakup therapy from our Thriveworks Greensboro 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 in replace of harmful (or maladaptive) coping mechanisms.

Is Breakup therapy conducted in person or online?

Breakup therapy from the therapists at Thriveworks in Greensboro, NC 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.

Need more help deciding?

Do not consider yourself to be strange because of some challenges that come your way after breaking up from your lover, spouse or partner. Most breakup persons go through the same ordeals. This is why it is a good decision to immediately seek some help from a trained relationship counselor or therapist who will cautiously lead you through the process of self-recovery.

Here are some of the common challenges faced by persons who had recently gone through an emotionally strained breakup:

  • Social problems: They tend to withdraw from social circles and avoid mingling with friends, colleagues and acquaintances. Mostly, they don’t want to associate with friends they had shared with their former lovers, partners or spouses. They are also known to be a recluse, and they exhibit poor interpersonal relationship skill.
  • Mental issues: Breakups can throw people into a series of debilitating mental illnesses, of which depression, anxiety and other mental disorders are the most common. If these mental health issues aren’t quickly dealt with, they could jeopardize the lives of breakup persons.
  • Financial hardship: Losing a partner or spouse to a breakup may also lead to a loss of financial assistance from that partner or spouse. So, after breakups, some people face difficult situations as they now have to provide for their own needs.

A trained relationship therapist is in the best position to help you transition from your current state of seemingly gloominess into a peaceful and happy life. Enjoying a robust relationship with people you admire or love has its own inherent benefits, and it is the responsibility of a relationship counselor to help you return into a frame of mind where forming a productive relationship is possible.

Those who refused to enlist the service (s) of the therapist will have to grapple alone with the following known symptoms of breakups, which are:

  • Sleeplessness
  • Anxiety
  • Feeling of hopelessness
  • Lack of motivation
  • Depression, and so on

Because a lot of emotions are involved in breakups, the affected partner needs time to heal. And there is no better way to do this than approaching this process of recovery conscientiously by working with a therapist. The breakup therapists and counselors at Thriveworks in Greensboro are happy to help.
