Hypnotherapy & Divorce

Everyone’s lives are filled with highs and lows, good experiences, and bad ones, too. Often, we allow the negative things to cloud our minds and completely disregard the positive outcomes that may have also come from the same situation. Divorce, for instance, can be a challenging situation to go through. As unfortunate as it is, not all marriages last forever. Many individuals going through a divorce can be overcome with intrusive thoughts that their lives have come to an end, but what if they were able to see their recent split as a sign of a brand new start to their life? Individuals can alter their perspective using hypnotherapy, all done in the comfort of their own space.

The Effect Divorce Has on the Mind

The divorce rate in married couples in the United States is roughly between 40 to 50% of married couples. Therefore, we can all understand why divorce can cause deep psychological distress for so many. The disintegration of the marriage can produce feelings of anger, fear, anxiety, and resentment. Going through a divorce with your spouse is one of the most stressful situations that a person can face, especially if children are involved. 


The high amounts of anxiety and stress that often come with divorce can lead to depression. Unfortunately, depression and stress can cause some individuals to turn to drugs and alcohol to help them cope with their feelings. According to the Journal of Divorce, men specifically tend to suffer more from a divorce. Therefore, they drink to manage their emotions rather than choose a helpful way, like hypnotherapy, to heal themselves.

Physical Health

When people possess heavy negative emotions, it’s not uncommon for them to feel the need to control something in their lives, which often is surrounding food. Two extremes may occur, causing disordered eating. Some may find themselves restricting their eating, making them more prone to illness and heart disease. On the contrary, some individuals can discover unhealthy coping mechanisms in overeating, meaning they find comfort in food rather than facing their emotions and getting to the root of the issue. Overeating can cause an increase in heart attack and blood pressure issues.
