A separation or divorce can be a tough time for those involved. It can often have effects similar to the death of a close relative or dear friend. It is natural to feel grief and sadness for a period of time following a separation, as there has certainly been a loss of a part of your life, and it will take some time to readjust.
As well as having to cope with the emotional side of a separation, there are also practical issues to deal with. These can include organising new homes for the people involved, deciding on custody issues if there are young children in the family, and splitting up finances. These tasks in themselves can be emotionally trying.

If you feel you are unable to cope, make an appointment to see one of our team. Psychology Melbourne psychologists can assist with making decisions around separation, dealing with the emotional consequences and adjusting to a new life after separation.
