So, whether you are thinking about ending your marriage (or common law relationship) or your partner has told you that the relationship is over, seek professional help with an experienced professional such as a Registered Clinical Counsellor trained in divorce and separation counselling or divorce support. No matter what the reasons are, divorce or the ending of a committed relationship is painful. It can be described as an ‘emotional roller-coaster’ as there are so many ups and downs. These painful emotions can lead to uncharacteristic and embarrassing behaviours as your self-esteem can be profoundly shaken.
The ending of a marriage or committed relationship is one of life’s highest stressors.
There are many losses (real and imagined) associated with the ending of a marriage or committed relationship. It is very important to understand and grieve the losses. Divorce and separation counselling in Vancouver BC by Claire Sutton can help you do that.
Although relief can be felt after leaving an unhealthy relationship, it is important to grieve the losses and to come to understand your role in the unhealthy relationship. Only then can you grow and move on in life.
Much of the emotional processing can be done prior to pursuing legal advice or in conjunction with legal advice as well as with the timing and the pacing of the legal process. If the emotional processing (the hurt, anger, fear) is not worked through, it can negatively impact the legal process especially in terms of extra legal work, higher costs and prolonged emotional pain.
