Starting Breakup therapy

What is Breakup therapy?

Breakup therapy from our Thriveworks Cave Spring 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 Cave Spring, 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.

Need more help deciding?

At the time that you are going through a breakup, it’s very difficult, maybe even impossible, to think that there is anything else you’ll experience in life that can possibly hurt as bad as this. It’s easy to lose hope of ever feeling happy again, and the remaining relationships in your life, even if they are strong, loving ones, probably seem completely pointless to you during this time.

Emotions are incredibly difficult to control; however, you can manage your perspective and the meaning you assign to the events going on in your life. By doing so, you’ll likely be able to look back in the future on your breakup and see that although it was painful, it was necessary, and it was healthy for your life.

Breakups can bring some of the worst pain you may ever experience, there’s no denying that, but they also bring with them an opportunity to grow and move forward. Reframing your now-hurting perspective into one looking for a benefit in these situations much easier said than done, especially when you try to do it on your own. Family and friends can help with some of the surface level pain, and depending on your situation, that may be enough. But it’s entirely possible that the effects of a breakup can permeate very deep into your life and end up affecting not only you, but also those around you. The longer you are in a relationship, the more your life and the life of your partner become intertwined; consequently, the more devastating the separation can be. The adjustments you’ll be facing can be massive, but they can be handled appropriately with the right help. In these cases, partnering with a professional counselor is the best way to heal and to find the positive opportunity in your life resulting from the breakup.

Thriveworks Roanoke Counseling has a team of highly experienced and passionate counselors and therapists that are ready to help you process your emotions and find your path forward. You don’t have to handle these painful breakup situations alone. You’re stronger than you think, and a Thriveworks Roanoke Counselor can help you realize what you’re capable of!

I was very pleased with our first visit. My son is not the easiest child to get to open up and Christine was very good with him and knew how to communicate with him effectively.

I had the pleasure of working with Chris in a professional capacity for 6 years, during which time he provided individual counseling for a number of children that I referred to him. Chris always demonstrated a sincere empathetic sensibility in his relationship with his clientele. He is keenly adept at providing the skills and guidance that allows others to pursue a self-actualizing understanding and awareness of themselves. He is a superb counselor.
