Co-parenting post divorce
Therapy is about getting help and moving forward. Whether you are uncertain, overwhelmed or dealing with a crisis, therapy will be useful. The entire process is tailored to your particular needs. By the time your therapy is completed you will be at a different place. You will be able to say, “I’m doing better—I found the help I needed.”
At the beginning of therapy, you will likely feel both hopeful and apprehensive. This is normal. By the end of the first session, the apprehension will have decreased and the hopefulness will have increased.
The first therapy tasks are to identify how you want things to turn out and how this can be achieved. From there you will work to learn new skills, change patterns of behavior or thinking and acquire relevant information. Therapy ends when you decide you have addressed your concerns sufficiently.
You can trust that your therapist has the formal training and clinical experience to help you develop a deeper and more accurate understanding of your concerns. You will discuss your experiences and interactions in a safe and nonjudgmental atmosphere. The therapist will guide and support this process.
