Coping with Divorce

Mental Heath Counselling to Improve Your Coping with Divorce Resilience

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 Improving Your Resilience

We do not know of any better method of coping with stress and strains of divorce than by following our Tranceformental 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 & Improve Your Coping Skills

If you’re committed to improving your coping with divorce problems then we highly recommend following our Advanced Tranceformental CBT programme with Paul. Tranceformental CBT is available as Online Therapy if required.

The Tranceformental programme is a highly successful & pragmatic mental health counselling course, 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 Tranceformental CBT programme is an evidence-based, research supported approach used by mental health practitioners around the World.

Free Initial Consultations to Discuss Coping with Divorce More Effectively

We offer all prospective clients an initial consultation to discuss your divorce-related mental health problems prior to commencing any counselling.

The consultation is free and lasts around 50 minutes.

During this consultation we will discuss the various types of psychological therapy that are available to you and make a considered recommendation based on your individual personal circumstances.

Initial consultations are also available as part of our online counselling service.

At Tranceform Psychology we emphasise the importance of the therapy relationship in helping people to bring about effective change, so its important to be able to ‘meet’ to discuss our change programmes BEFORE proceeding.

Our policy is to help people make a fully balanced & considered decision about undertaking mental health work with us, including both the financial and personal implications.
