Therapy for Divorce and Breakups

When a relationship ends we grieve losing a person we love but also the life we had, the future we created, and the comfort  of having a teammate to manage life with. You may question what happened or feel like the relationship ending means that you are a failure or unlovable.
How to move on after a breakup
Therapy can provide a space where you can process what happened during the relationship and what was your partner's role and your role in the relationship coming to an end. We will explore how this relates to relationship patterns in previous relationships and your family and how to make sure it doesn't happen in your next relationship.

You do not have to go through this process alone. You can rely on an expert who understands the toll this can take and has witnessed how people can move on and find love again.

Holding all of this at the same time can feel overwhelming. Most people who have gone through a divorce will say it was one of the most difficult things they have experienced. 

Often during the haze of the divorce process we don't give ourselves the space to check-in and truly grieve. After the dust starts to settle you might experience a new wave that may take you by surprise. During this time some people try to make themselves busy as a distraction while others may experience fatigue, numbness and depression. The finalization of the divorce often brings relief and sadness.

Breakup Recovery at Lone Wolf

We are wired as humans to be connected to others. Our brain experiences loneliness and relationship loss as a threat to our life and reacts accordingly . This means feeling panic, anxiety, depression, and even physical pain. Our society often minimizes the pain associated with a breakup but this is not accurate at all. 

Due to it often being minimized you may feel like there is something wrong with you because you are deeply grieving this loss and can't "get over it" quickly like you see others doing. This is especially true if you were in a relationship with an unhealthy person.

When you are going through a breakup you may feel unloveable, broken, sad, confused, depressed, relieved, embarrassed or a combination of difficult emotions. It is difficult during this time to make healthy decisions and process your breakup in an accurate way. This is where therapy for breakups can be beneficial. Therapy can help you cope with the grief and loss and eventually help you understand why this relationship ended and move forward to find a new healthy loving relationship. 

It is completely normal and healthy to grieve a breakup, but you don't have to do this alone, or be stuck in your grief any longer than you need to be! Our therapists at Lone Wolf can help you heal and move on.
