What is Divorce Counselling?
It is assumed that a counsellor helps client to take the decision of whether to stay married or to get divorced. However, that is not the case.

Rather in such type of counselling, the counsellor helps the client to be psychologically strong so that they can take the decision themselves.
A lot of factors are involved when one decides to get divorced, but their thinking and decision making may get clouded due to other’s judgement. But a counsellor tries to understand the individual’s or the couple’s entire story and then they guide them on the right path.
Divorce counselling can be split into 2 parts-
1. Pre-Divorce Counselling:
Pre-divorce counselling, as the name suggests, is when couple is thinking about either separation or getting divorced. Here, it is checked whether the couple have tried the ways to understand their partner and do they need to go down this path. The analysis is done in a realistic way with help of different therapies and approaches.
2. Post-Divorce Counselling:
In post-divorce counselling, the counsellor helps the individual or the couple to get back on the track of resilience. Divorce can be a life changing situation; some people might get affected by it badly. Stress, loneliness can be factors, to name a few, which people could face after divorce. Dealing with mental wellbeing post-divorce is the main aim here.

Not necessarily. The counsellor analyses the differences between the couple and the couple’s willingness to give their marriage another shot. If that works out then the marriage might not end in divorce. There may be a few cases, where the couple might have reached the dead end. At such time, divorce could be an option but it shouldn’t be taken in a negative way. It can be viewed as a new beginning in one’s life!

This varies from case to case and the counsellor’s approach. The counsellor needs to understand whether the work needs to be done on emotional level or on thought level. Depending on that and on other factors, the counsellor decides the type of therapy for the couple.
