Coping with Divorce
Practical Tools for Coping with Divorce in Wolverhampton
Learning the skills for coping with divorce seems to be more relevant now that at any other time in our (the UK) history. The Office for National Statistics estimate that approximately 50% of all marriages will end in divorce meaning, depending on how you ‘see it’, that divorce is as ‘normal’ as ‘staying’ married.
Whether you are recently divorced, in the process of getting divorced or are facing the prospect of divorce, it can often be a very traumatic experience which may have a long lasting impact on how you feel about yourself. Divorce may be something that you want or it may be the last thing you want depending on the reasons you are getting divorced.
Whatever the circumstances of your particular situation, divorce tends to be a time of emotional upheaval and usually ends up with one party feeling worse than the other leading to what is often referred to as the ‘injured’ party. Even when a divorce is as amicable as possible, it usually marks the end of several years spent living together and precedes a new chapter in a person’s life which can be quite daunting.
If you have a low tolerance to stress and anxiety, or your general coping skills are ‘low’ then learning how to become more resilient and improving your coping skills can be especially beneficial.
Coping with Divorce by Thriving
We do not know of any better method of coping with stress and strains of divorce than by following our CBT programme here at Tranceform Psychology.
Our beliefs based CBT approach provides a totally new way of dealing with ‘mental health problems’ that is not based on the medico-psychiatric-model of ‘disorders’ and ‘illnesses’. There is plenty of research indicating that ‘labelling’ people as ‘mentally ill’ not only causes additional problems, but also leads people to feeling ‘powerless’ when it comes to solving the problems associated with feelings of anxiety.
Although divorce is clearly NOT a mental health problem, it can often lead to emotional difficulties that are commonly classified as ‘problems’.

Transform Your Thinking & Start Coping with Divorce Issues
If you want to begin coping with divorce related issues more effectively then we highly recommend following either our Advanced Cognitive Behavioural Therapy course with Paul, or the Changing Limiting Beliefs (CLB) Programme with Joan.
Both the CBT course and Changing Limiting Beliefs approach are highly successful & pragmatic psychological training programmes, run over 10 sessions, that will teach you everything you need to know to understand your problem, identify how unhelpful thinking and limiting beliefs might be reinforcing the issue, and then show you how to make any changes to your unhelpful thinking styles or maladaptive safety behaviours that you may have developed as part of your coping strategies.
Our CBT programme is an evidence-based, research supported approach used by mental health practitioners around the World.
FREE Initial Consultations
We offer all prospective clients a FREE initial assessment to chat about coping with divorce using the CBT Programme.
During this 50 minute consultation we will discuss how the approach works, why it is different and what’s involved.
At TranceForm we believe that therapy & coaching should be a collaboration between therapist and client so it’s very important to be able to meet PRIOR to agreeing any kind of help. Our policy is to help people make a fully balanced & considered decision about undertaking therapy with us, including both the financial and personal implications.
For most mental health issues we recommend following our 10 session Tranceformental CBT Programme (an advanced version of conventional Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) to overcome a wide range of mental health and behavioural problems.
CBT is a proven form of therapy for developing a fundamental level of understanding into the dynamics of your problem, but also for learning new coping skills and strategies for sustainable change over your life.
