 “Will the pain and anger ever end?"  

“How will I tell my friends and family?”  “Why am I such a failure?"

 “Will I ever find someone again?"

Divorce & Separation Counselling Toronto

Divorce is painful.  It is one of the highest rated stressors, up there with the death of a loved one and, similarly, often involves complex grieving.  Divorce can bring up intense feelings of anger, sadness, anxiety, and even panic and depression.  Going through a divorce can interfere with many areas of life such as work, relationships, and other responsibilities.  For some people, ending a marriage can interfere with their sleeping and eating patterns. They may also experience symptoms of trauma such as nightmares and reliving scenes over and over again in their mind. 

Perhaps you feel like you lost yourself during the time that you were married and don’t even recognize yourself anymore.  You may be experiencing grief at the loss of shared dreams.  Maybe you are struggling with your new role as a single or co-parent, or are having difficulties negotiating with your ex.  You may feel completely overwhelmed and wonder how you will get through the divorce.  You may also feel overwhelmed by the financial worries that can often accompany divorce.  You may be re-entering the workplace after not being formally employed for some time.  You may be wondering if others will judge you, or what will happen to your friendships.
