“Divorce is the psychological equivalent of a triple coronary bypass.”
~ Mary Kay Blakely ~
The End of a Relationship is Very Hard
Practically, there are so many decisions to make; things to get done… and we find ourselves constantly reviewing the past. We wonder what went wrong. We wonder what we could have done to save the relationship.
The Messiness and Pain
Separation can feel like your world has fallen apart – where no matter how you rearrange it – you just can’t put the pieces back together again. The emotional fallout of hurt, sadness, fear, anger and loneliness overwhelm us. Whatever you do, don’t try to go through it alone.
Divorce is a difficult transition for all family members. Almost 50% of all marriages end in divorce and one-third of breakups happen in the first five years of marriage. It can be massive challenge going through the emotional, legal and logistical issues that have to be taken care of in order to move on. Further, recreating a new life can feel impossible.

Things do get better. In Calgary, we offer separation and divorce counselling that helps with the transition by receiving professional support and advice to move through the myriad of things that are on your plate; and through the grief.
