How Can Relationship Counseling Help After a Divorce?

by Mar 27, 2016Dating and Relationships

Divorce is one of the most difficult times in any person’s life. Not only is it financially and legally stressful – it is emotionally taxing as well, filled with a variety of highly complex emotions that sometimes make little sense, and are almost always heavy.

This heaviness can take a significant mental toll, and when it does, it may be valuable to consider relationship counseling. While many people think of relationship counseling as an opportunity for a couple to heal their marriage, it can also be used as a tool to overcome some of the challenges that come with all relationship issues, including divorce, which can be addressed at my Long Island couples counseling practice.

Why Do People Attend Relationship Counseling After Divorce?

Relationship counseling is not only about fixing a marriage. It is about making sure you are prepared for any type of relationship, romantic or otherwise. Some of the reasons people see a relationship counselor include:

Assistance with Co-Parenting

If you have had children with your ex, it is crucial that your lines of communication stay open and friendly. This can be difficult for some couples who have struggled through a difficult divorce. Taking the time to work through issues with a relationship therapist can make the process of co-parenting easier to make sure that your children have engaged and supportive parents.

Support Post-Divorce Friendship

Often after a divorce, the couple may have some desire to remain on good terms or to have a friendship. This is a common situation as many people marry their best friend and don’t want to lose that just because their intimate relationship wasn’t successful. The issues that led up to divorce can make that goal difficult. Post-divorce relationship counseling can ease that transition from a marriage to a friendship.

Prepare for Singlehood

Sometimes you simply need help overcoming what you went through in order to handle what singlehood will bring you in the near future, and potentially what future relationships hold in store. It can be hard to overcome stress, fighting, and the high emotions that come from divorce, as well as feelings of loneliness, missing your ex, struggling with change, and moving forward. Relationship counseling is there to help you prepare for that future.
