6-Week Divorce and Separation Group for Women

Hope and Healing: Separation/Divorce Group

Are you going through a painful divorce?

Are you wondering how to rebuild your life after your relationship has ended?

Have you already gone through a divorce but are struggling with managing your single-life, family, friends, and co-parenting?

If you’ve answered yes to any of these, you’re not alone! In fact, the divorce rate in Hillsborough and Pinellas County was averaging at 57%. This doesn’t take away the pain you are going through as an individual. The fact of the matter is that the majority of women feel an excessive amount of anxiety and uncertainty when it comes to re-establishing their identity after divorce or separation.

How Hope and Healing can help you!

I’ve created this group to empower women by bringing them together in one of the most emotional and vulnerable times of their lives.  Women who have come to this group reported a renewed sense of self and purpose. This support group will assist those women who are going through the separation/divorce process with the focus on rebuilding their lives after the loss of a relationship. Group topics include:

  1. Rebuilding after your relationship ends-understanding the process of moving forward.
  2. Understanding your emotions-learning how to cope with complex emotions.
  3. Grieving the loss of the relationship-learning how to navigate through grief.
  4. Self-worth and the importance of growing your self-esteem-boost your emotional resilience and unleash your ability to bounce back.
  5. Life in Balance: Our fifth week will concentrate on improving the areas of your life that have been the most difficult for you. These include friends, family, dating and sex-life, parenting (if applicable), occupation, physical health, and sleep.
  6. Transitioning to a new beginning-focusing on letting go of the life you had planned and embraced the life waiting for you!

Soula - counseling for women's issues st. petersburg, fl

Group Therapist

My name is Soula Hareas and I specialize in counseling women. I am a mother of three and I’m all too familiar with the feeling of being overwhelmed by the many roles we as women have in our society. When my clients are going through a divorce or separation, I see their identity as women being turned upside down. Through my fifteen years of experience as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, I have become passionate about helping women feel better and become empowered while going through the most difficult times of their lives. If you’re reading this, you’re already taking the courageous first step in getting the help you need. Call us today at 727-344-9867, or e-mail me at Soula@McNultyCW.com, to reserve your space in the upcoming 6-week Hope and Healing group.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you are concerned about your relationship, and you would both like to work with me, I would initially work with both of you together. After this work, if one of you would like to continue in individual sessions, I could work with only one of you. It is not helpful to move from individual into couple’s work with the same therapist because of potential trust issues.

I am so glad you are dedicated to getting the most out of your sessions. Your active participation and dedication is crucial to your success. After all, we only see each other for a session a week depending on where you are in treatment. It’s the work you do outside of our sessions that will really help you see your personal growth and development.
Unfortunately, this is not possible to say in a general FAQs page. Everyone’s circumstances are unique to them and the length of time therapy can take to allow you to accomplish your goals depends on your desire for personal development, your commitment, and the factors that are driving you to seek therapy in the first place.
Because each person has different issues and goals for therapy, therapy will be different depending on the individual. I tailor my therapeutic approach to your specific needs.
Medication alone cannot solve all issues. What medication does is treat the symptoms. Our work together is designed to explore the root of the issue, dig deep into your behavior and teach strategies that can help you accomplish your personal and/or relational goals. Sometimes medication makes it more difficult to realize the underlying problems so if getting off of medication is something you’re interested in, I would be glad to help you in your journey.
A Licensed Mental Health Counselor has the training and qualifications that are equipped to handle a multitude of problems. They can help you approach your situation in a new way– teach you new skills, gain different perspectives, listen to you without judgment or expectations, and help you listen to yourself. Furthermore, therapy is completely confidential. You won’t have to worry about others “knowing my business.” Lastly, if your situation provokes a great deal of negative emotion, if you’ve been confiding in a friend or family member, there is the risk that once you are feeling better you could start avoiding that person so you aren’t reminded of this difficult time in your life.
Not at all. People who ask for help know when they need it and have the ability to reach out. Everyone needs help now and then. You already have some strengths that you’ve used before, that for whatever reason isn’t working right now. Perhaps this problem feels overwhelming and is making it difficult to access your past strengths. In our work together, I’ll help you identify what those strengths are and how to implement them again in what is happening now.
