The decision to divorce is never easy. Whatever the reason may be, there are often wounds that cannot heal until they have been addressed in a healthy safe environment. Our divorce counselling can help anyone affected by divorce to come to peace with a difficult situation. Divorce advice is not applicable to every relationship; divorce therapy is specific to your relationship and can help you to decide whether you want to save the marriage or if it is time to call it quits. It is important if you do choose to get a divorce, to work on making it an amicable divorce.

Beyond custody, there are other crucial issues when involving your children in your divorce decision. Telling the children jointly about the decision is crucial, and is something that our therapists can help to prepare you for. Beyond this, there are techniques to try and minimize the negative impact on the children, which is something that our therapists are trained to advise you on.
Co-parenting your children will take a lot of work, and is one more reason that divorce counselling is crucial, as you must be able to be amicable for the sake of the children. When children are involved, divorce therapy is a must—from breaking the news, to co-parenting, to helping them with the feelings involved and caused by the divorce situation.
What if my Ex-Spouse Does Not want to Attend Divorce Counselling?
If your spouse is not interested in attending divorce counselling, you can still attend on your own. This way, you can still find the support you need for yourself and your children, and make sure you are getting the divorce advice and resources that you need to make sure the situation is healthy for you. If your spouse refuses to be amicable, there may be custody issues or potential for an abusive relationship. Counsellors can help guide through these extremely difficult situations to look out for your safety, well-being, and wellness.
Divorces are rarely clean-cut or easy. Often there are loose ends and open wounds leftover from the process of splitting up.
