Acrimonious separations and divorces can be emotionally, relationally and financially shattering.
Leone Centre separation and divorce counselling supports individuals and couples who are considering the possibility of separating and those who are dealing with the immediate aftermath of a relationship break up or divorce. With just under half of UK marriages ending in disunion, counselling is helpful for understanding, processing, grieving and supporting people who want a respectful ending so that they can move on with their lives.
Is it possible to have a successful divorce?
Although divorce and splitting up is not uncommon, it is inevitably a process that can trigger heightened anxiety, insecurities, resentment, sadness and grieving but also a sense of relief. During the process of separation and relationship breakup, stress can be experienced at an emotional, psychological, legal and financial level – a divorcing couple has a lot to juggle with as their vision and landscape changes permanently.
The enormity and significance of a positive separation cannot be underestimated holding in mind that parenting can also become a core contentious area and a new context to manage.
