I Know I Need Help To Cope With The Stress Of The Divorce, But I Can’t Afford Counseling. What Can I Do?
You are wise to recognize that divorce is a time for letting in support. You can explore a number of options, including:
- Meeting with a member of the clergy or lay chaplain
- Joining a divorce support group
- Turning to friends and family members
- Going to a therapist or divorce coach. If budget is a concern, contact a social agency that offers counseling services on a sliding fee scale.
If none of these options are available, look again at your budget. You may see that counseling is important enough that you decide to find a way to increase your income or lower your expenses to support this investment in your well-being. Consult with your insurance company as counseling may be a covered expense under your insurance policy.
