Divorce Counseling Online
According to the World Population Review, about 50% of married couples divorce, which is the sixth highest divorce rate in the world. The same set of statistics suggest that second marriages have a higher divorce rate at around 60% and third marriages tend to have a rate of 73%. While couples therapy can’t always save a marriage, it can help improve communication, general well-being of each individual, and amicability of the divorce. The learnings from couples therapy can also help lead to better future relationships, meaning that future relationships may be less likely to end in divorce.
At Lovewell, we help couples who are considering marriage separation and divorce with pre-divorce counseling. We also provide family therapy for divorce and individual therapy for divorce for those considering divorce or separation and those who need divorce recovery therapy and support. In addition to therapy for divorce, our coaches provide professional divorce coaching and online divorce support.
People who have recently divorced, are in the process of recently divorcing, or are thinking about divorcing. The relationship group therapy objectives are to offer support, lessen isolation, and aid in current or potential future romantic relationships.
Due to stigma or fear around mental health treatment or exposing the flaws in their relationship, many couples and individuals may wait until it is too late to seek counseling and therapy, but our divorce coaching and therapy services are helpful for general support and maintenance of your mental health and well-being, even if you feel it’s necessary to part ways. A few of the most common reasons people actually seek out some of our divorce services include:
- Lack of connection and intimacy in the relationships

- The sense that “things could be better”
- Depression in one or both partners
- Feeling Stuck in the relationship
- Controlling or “toxic” behaviors
- One or both partners unwillingness to change

- Lifestyle differences
- Divorce coaching for families
- Clarity about wanting to separate but wanting support making decisions around the process
Relationships change over their life span and our life span, and the tools we need to navigate these transitions change as well. Therapy and counseling can provide us with coping skills, tools, language, and frameworks to help move through these changes with less turbulence, and more grace and ease. Therapy provides a safe, supportive container to explore our needs and make necessary values-based changes in our relationships.
