Staying Positive During Your Divorce

Staying positive during your divorce can be challenge when such a wide range of emotions and feelings are often being experienced during this difficult time.

We all deal with situations in different ways, and whilst some may be able to cope and adapt to single life fairly well, others may be left feeling angry, resentful, confused, anxious, depressed and even fearful of what the future holds for them and their children without their spouse for support.

Seeking therapy during this time of emotional upheaval can really help you to stay focused on the end goal, keeping you on track and emotionally stable which will help prevent those negative feelings becoming all-consuming.

A therapist will help you to focus on objectives from a rational perspective and will guide you through the difficulties of divorce. Some people often discover more about themselves through therapy, about their nature and personal characteristics and what they actually want and need from a relationship.

There are many different types of therapies available and which one you choose will much depend on you as a person and what you feel will benefit you the most.

Talking therapies such as relationship counselling and CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) help to promote a positive change and alleviate emotional distress through addressing psychological, social and behavioural issues.

Mindfulness is more of a self-help therapy. Mindfulness is a powerful technique which forms part of your daily life by performing mind practices and exercises to help break the cycle of stress, anxiety, unhappiness and exhaustion. These techniques will help promote positivity through your mind and body. Mindfulness helps you to stay in the present and stops you living in the past. It will help you to develop a different perspective and a fresh outlook on life.

Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) can help to stabilise your emotions during the periods of stress and anxiety and similar to Mindfulness, will help you to utilise your resources more effectively so you can see a way forward rather than allowing negative feelings to take hold. NLP will help you to move on and be emotionally prepared for new relationships.
