Divorce / Separation
Trying to prevent a relationship from ending, working through a bitter separation, or taking control of your life after an important relationship has ended is difficult for anyone. Often people are left feeling angry, confused, sad, lonely, and filled with self-doubt.
The counselors at Healing Telephone Counselling understand that when you experience any kind of loss, you not only grieve that loss, but also the loss of the hopes and dreams that go along with that loss. The professionals at Healing Telephone Counselling can help you through this challenging time by helping you to make meaning of all that has happened, and work through your issues so that you can feel healthy and whole again.
Divorce or separation can be devastating. That is why it is listed as one of the five biggest stressors in life. But you do not have to go through this process alone. You can choose to learn from the loss and learn how to grieve in a healthy way so you do not lose who you are in the process.
Sometimes the difficult times in life afford people the opportunity to learn and grow. It can be a scary and confusing time when relationships change. Having an objective, highly trained mental health professional can help you with either trying to decide if separation or divorce is the right option, or how to cope with issues such as infidelity, feelings of betrayal, guilt, ands/or grief.
Counselors are also aware that the changes that come with separation or divorce can impact children and other close relatives and friends. These issues can also be addressed to help minimize the negative effects on others and to ensure that the integrity of those relationships are maintained.
What can you expect from telephone counseling?
Using the phone to talk with a counselor is not much different than what you could expect from an office visit. The therapy we offer at Healing Telephone Counselling, by way of the telephone, can be as effective, or even more effective, than the traditional in-office visits.
You may have anxieties or concerns about office visits and may not be as willing to open up and truly express your feelings and thoughts because it seems too overwhelming or intimidating to sit down, face-to-face with a counselor. By using the telephone, you can discuss without the self-consciousness you may experience sitting across from a mental health professional.
We have many professionals available to help you.
The first step to engaging in therapy is to select from our list of highly qualified professionals. You can do this by both choosing from the list of on this page, and reviewing the different the counselor's profile and listening to an audio introduction if available. Start gradually with a free consultation.
We offer a free 10 minute screening to ensure that you would like to work with that counselor, as it is important that you feel that there is a good match. Once you choose your therapist, you can begin therapy in a way that feels most comfortable to you.
It all starts with learning about your needs.
Your therapist may initially ask you questions about your concerns; explore how your issues are impacting your life, and what are some of your goals. You can choose the pace at which you want to go. This means you can slowly address your issues, or you can choose to share your problems in your initial phone session.
You can expect your counselor to be a non-judgmental, supportive individual. He or she may ask you questions about your thoughts and feelings, and help guide you to exploring issues surrounding your concerns. The counselors at Healing Telephone Counselling are invested in helping you to achieve the goals you would like. They can help provide knowledge and tools that enable you to deal more effectively with your problems.
