Starting Breakup therapy

What is breakup therapy?

Breakup therapy from our Thriveworks Westminster 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 Westminster, CO 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.

Breaking up is definitely hard to do. Even a mutual decision to end a relationship can be difficult. The issue of separating from one’s lover, partner, or spouse exerts huge emotional strain. This is an uncomfortable situation that often throws people into confusion as they struggle to get rid of painful past memories while embracing a peaceful new life. Fortunately, breakup counseling can help. Reach out to Thriveworks Westminster for breakup support today.

Common Feelings During Relationship Breakups

Though some of the items on the list below (such as altered sleep patterns) are relatively minor if experienced in the short-term, some of them—such as suicidal thoughts—are very serious when experienced even once, and they should be treated as such. If you’re experiencing any of the symptoms below, whether briefly or for an ongoing period, please call Thriveworks Westminster counseling immediately:

  • Loss of motivation
  • Real physical pain
  • Poor sleeping pattern
  • Nervousness or anxiety
  • Depression
  • Thoughts of committing suicide
  • Hopelessness

The breakup issues highlighted above are very difficult. They’re difficult enough, in fact, that it’s advisable you not try to handle them alone. It’s okay to reach out for help. Talking to an experienced breakup therapist can eventually bring relief and healing. Our counselors take your struggle seriously, and we know that with therapy, you can return to a stable space, able to move forward with your life.

Challenges People Usually Face After Breakups

Social challenges

During and after a breakup, some people will withdraw from their normal interactions with friends, associates, and colleagues. This is often the case if those interactions would have normally included their ex-partner. Similarly, previously mutual friends may “pick” one partner or the other. Counseling can help with the inevitable social changes that will occur due to a breakup.

Financial challenges

In a relationship, partners often share finances to some degree. When relationships end, partners are typically responsible for their own financial needs. Thriveworks Westminster counselors are familiar with the difficulty financial stress brings, and we can help you develop a plan to manage the new financial responsibility.

Mental challenges

People who have gone through breakups often exhibit depression and mood swings as part of the rollercoaster of the post-breakup experience. It’s important to maintain mental balance, especially in the weeks and months immediately post-breakup, in order to heal and make good decisions for the future.

How Can a Qualified Relationship Counselor Help?

A relationship therapist will:

  • Listen carefully to the affected party and give practical suggestions. This may include help processing the breakup and moving forward as well as assistance establishing a new normal, particularly in regard to habits and routines.
  • Provide real-time counseling according to the initial information gathered from the affected party.
  • Keep the counseling real and give concrete, actionable advice.
  • Carefully guide the affected party through a process of self-recovery. In some ways, you may have forgotten who you are outside of a relationship. The goal of counseling is to improve quality of life. It’s a process, but you can heal and rediscover the best version of yourself.
  • Establish an aura of positivity for boosting the self-confidence of the affected party.
  • Help the affected party eliminate guilt and self-accusation from his or her mind. Whether or not the decision was mutual, it’s easy to fall into a pattern of self-blame. Thriveworks Westminster counselors can help you break that pattern and develop healthier self-talk.
  • Create an attitude of self-expression and better communication skills in the affected partner. You may not be interested in another relationship for awhile, and that’s completely okay. Improved communication skills are beneficial in and out of romantic relationships, and usually lead to stronger relationships in general.

Chris at Thrive Works saved my life. I started at the beginning of the pandemic, by phone, and I didn’t think therapy by phone would have the impact that it did. But I tried for my kids, my marriage, and myself. I can’t say enough good things about Chris. Thank you for everything, and for literally saving my life. I wouldn’t be alive without his counsel.

Initially I saw Jacob for my intake appointment and felt he was really great. I was placed with Kate Kelly and overall she is fabulous. She has helped me live to my full potential. She has helped me sort out my PTSD with childhood and adult trauma, as well as being a great resource for addiction counseling. She was also extremely helpful to point me in the right direction on how to deal with (or escape from) toxic family members. She was also a really great help to me during grief and loss of a loved one. I feel so much better than I did before going to Thriveworks. I'm in a great place now and will be back in the future. I can't thank you enough.

Jacob has helped me much more than any therapist I've ever seen. His skill, insight, and kindness are truly outstanding. Jacob has helped me change my life so that my depression is no longer in charge. His approach is very direct - which may not be for everyone but was perfect for me - but he always acts and speaks with sincere compassion. Thank you, Jacob, you have helped heal me at a level I thought was impossible. Also, Jennifer has always been super wonderful and responsive withheduling and questions. She goes above and beyond to be helpful and kind. Thanks Jennifer! You're awesome.
