"Divorce" on a psychology issue list pertains to the complex and often challenging process of legally terminating a marriage. The psychological impacts of divorce can be profound and far-reaching, as it frequently involves a mix of loss, change, adaptation, and emotional upheaval. Individuals undergoing a divorce may encounter a wide range of emotions, such as sadness, anger, guilt, frustration, confusion, and even relief. They might also experience a deep sense of loss as they come to terms with the conclusion of a once-meaningful relationship and the need to redefine their lives.

Divorce can have significant short-term and long-term effects on children. These effects may include changes in living arrangements, alterations in relationships with parents, disruptions to daily routines, and challenges to their sense of stability and security. Children may also struggle with feelings of confusion, guilt, and divided loyalties.

The process of divorce can also lead to various practical challenges, such as financial stress, custody disputes, and the need to navigate new social and family dynamics. These practical concerns can further exacerbate the emotional strain on all parties involved.

Counseling or therapy can be highly beneficial for individuals and families going through a divorce. It provides a safe and supportive space for individuals to process their emotions, work through the complex challenges associated with divorce, and develop healthy coping strategies. Family therapy or mediation can help families address conflicts, improve communication, and find solutions that prioritize the best interests of all members, particularly children.

Therapy can also assist individuals in rebuilding their self-esteem, rediscovering their personal identity, and developing a new sense of purpose and direction in life. As individuals move beyond the divorce, they can learn to cultivate resilience, embrace personal growth, and foster new, healthier relationships.

Offering a free consultation will help you build trust with the client. It shows them that you want to give them a chance to make sure you are the right person to help them before they move forward. Additionally, you should also be confident that you can support your clients and that the client has problems that you can help them cope with. Also, you can avoid any ethical difficult situations about charging a client for a session in which you choose not to proceed based on fit.

We've found that people are more likely to proceed with therapy after a free consultation, as it lowers the barrier to starting the process.
