Separation – Divorce

The end of a relationship comes with a complex set of emotions such as denial, anger, guilt, rejection, sadness, regret, depression and anxiety. These are all normal reactions and the sequence and intensity of these emotions can vary depending on whether you were the one to initiate the separation or the one who has been left.

In either case it can be difficult to know how to move on and what to do next and there may be a lot of mixed feelings and uncertainty, which can be very stressful.

Some people will feel deep down that their relationship is not salvageable, that there is no hope in trying to stay together.

It is natural to want to ignore these feelings at first, as any alternative to being together is too hard to contemplate.

Little by little it becomes harder to avoid recognising that the relationship is irretrievable and sadly, this is sometimes a one-sided awareness – the other person in the relationship may not share the same feelings or want to talk about separating.

At Insights Counselling Carlow, I am trained to work with the emotional impact of separation and divorce.

Here you will find the help you need to express the huge range of feelings, the anger, the hurt, the sadness, the confusion and the fear.

You will find the support to help you through the difficult and complex emotional process until you feel ready to move on.

If you notice that you are feeling very stressed in your life whether it be caused by work/ family/ other, it may be an indication that it is time to look at the cause(s) of your stress.

Often times it is how we think about certain situations; the pressure we put on ourselves, which causes us to feel stressed about them

Counselling will provide you with the calming, non-pressurised space to temporarily step away from your stressors and look at them more objectively.

Taking this time to look at your life and the situations/ relationships which are causing you stress, will give you clarity around how you can take better care of yourself and lead a happier, less stress-filled existence.

At Insights Counselling, Carlow, I will provide you with the space you need to step out of your life and look in.

From this objective, calming view point you can examine what has been causing you so much stress and decide a way forward which is healthier for you and those around you.
