Separation or divorce?

Are you experiencing separation or divorce? We can help you with issues caused by separation or divorce, such as anxiety, grief or anger. 

Separation or divorce is a major event in anyone’s life and there are ways of working through the practical and emotional issues. At Positive Solutions, we can help you with strategies to adjust during this time and work towards a fresh start.

A mixture of emotions can be felt in a relationship breakup. These emotions can include guilt, relief, anxiety and anger. It is also natural to feel exposed and have many questions in relation to separation, family law and divorce.

What services are available?

Counselling may help you to:

  • look at the changing nature of your relationship;
  • manage the anxiety, grief and loss associated with separation and/or divorce;
  • identify a pathway for the separation;
  • learn about acceptance and ways to attain it;
  • learn to be single again;
  • gain the strength to consider a new and sustaining relationship.

Working with someone who has no personal involvement in your situation can assist you with working through your separation and provides you with support through this difficult time.

This support may be about hurt feelings, problems between you and your partner or another person in the family, new living arrangements and issues relating to the care of your children and financial adjustments.

For further information about these services please see family law counselling or post separation counselling for more information.

Our experienced Family Dispute Resolution Practitioners are able to assist you and your partner in parenting and/or property matters. This service is known as family mediation and is a requirement for parenting under the Family Law Act.
