Post-divorce or breakup: Healing from a divorce/breakup can be a very difficult and draining task. Sometimes we go through the same grieving process as a death. We loose a very important part of ourselves, even when the change is desired. We loose the dreams and plans that we had for the future and a big part of our past. This transition can be difficult even when we’re the one doing the leaving. We need to create new plans and become our own person apart from the couple system. When there are children involved, it can be even more challenging to figure out our new role; and how to help ourselves heal and grow after this change while also helping our children.
Relationship readiness: so you have been single for a while but would like to start dating again? Or have been dating but wonder why you keep on attracting the same type of people as those that didn’t work out in the past. Unless we take some time to figure out our priorities and who we are outside of a relationship, we tend to make the same mistakes. It may be time to heal from all your past relationship challenges or other traumas and grow to be the type of person that you want to attract into your life. We have to be happy with our own selves before we can be happy with anybody else.
New marriage/ marriage changes: a new marriage can be exciting and joyful but it also brings many changes to both of your lives. These changes, like any other changes, need preparation or it can end up hurting the relationship. Sometimes there are children from prior marriages and making this new dynamic work takes some preparation and work. It will be better at the end
