Divorce Support Options for Men – Individual Support, Divorce Support Groups and More

Rarely is anyone prepared for the end of their marriage. Divorce is highly stressful, and, for some, downright hellacious. During a divorce, men go through a variety of stages – blame, anger, sadness, feelings of failure, social withdrawal, recovery of self-worth (a.k.a. mojo), and re-entry into the dating world. Going through these stages of divorce take men an average of three years. To do so quickly, divorce support for men is vital and necessary.

Most men think they can do it alone. But why waste time and suffer more than you have to? Having support speeds up and eases the process of returning to a normal, successful, confident life.

To speed up your return to confidence, we offer a variety of support services to fuel your transformation to a happier and more successful man. We offer individual divorce coaching sessions. There are men’s divorce support groups which focus on education and support and typically include 5-8 men per group. And there is the comprehensive divorce support package for an even quicker recovery (as outlined below).

Having the right piece of knowledge now may save you tens of thousands of dollars down the road.

Having a knowledgable team of men around you to guide you in making rational decisions when you are out of sorts makes all the difference in the world.

Why a Divorce Support Group?

When going through a divorce, most people feel (temporarily) shattered, as if the rug that is the foundation of life has been pulled from beneath their feet. They experience a roller coaster of emotions which arise with great intensity, seemingly out of nowhere. Many worry about wearing out friends and family with their negative news and hesitate to share more with them, despite continuing to need support and advice. What is needed is to be around others who have walked the road of divorce, who possess critical knowledge, and who have the emotional bandwidth to listen, validate and support. Often, men feel as if they are going “crazy” when, in fact, they are merely experiencing normal feelings due to an abnormal situation. A support group for men is the ideal format as it involves men who are all different spots in their divorce experience. Each can offer unique knowledge, compassion and perspective to the others to assist in navigating these difficult waters.
