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 the Thrive Programme with Paul here at Tranceform Psychology. Thrive 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’.

The Thrive Programme for Coping with Divorce
Thrive is an evidence-based training programme that uses applied psychology principles to help you understand and then change any unhelpful thinking styles and limiting beliefs that have an adverse impact on your ability to cope with divorce.
Over the course of ten one-hourly sessions you will learn about and develop personal insight into how your core beliefs have either helped or hindered you over your life course and then how to use a range of proven scientific methods to bring about changes so that you can begin coping with divorce more effectively.
