Westport Connecticut Divorce Support Group
Divorce can often be a complex and difficult process that elicits painful emotions such as sadness, anger, fear, abandonment, and guilt. Add in the practical aspects of divorce (e.g., custody issues, finances, single parenting) and divorce can be quite overwhelming and isolating. A divorce support group can provide you with the strength to overcome this difficult time and to recover and grow.
With divorce many people experience the loss of social support. Additionally, living without one’s spouse can be lonely. A divorce support group made up of other individuals living through a similar experience can help you to decrease your sense of isolation and to feel more understood.
A divorce support group helps members:
- Feel more connected with and supported by others.
- Understand their emotional needs and how to address them.
- Regain focus on self-care and improve self-esteem.
- Let go of difficult emotions.
- Increase hope for the future.
