When a relationship comes to an end it can be difficult to deal with the feelings that overtake you. Maybe you have known the end is coming with issues and situations building up over a period of time and yet, when the reality hits it can take the wind from your sails. It is important to realise that no matter how the relationship broke down, whether you brought the relationship to an end or not, you will still go through a process about loss. The emotional pressure on those involved is huge. One of the things that a Counsellor will help you do is to understand that it is perfectly normal to have all of these feelings and to help you accept both them and your doubts and help you to look at how you want to move forward. The process of sharing problems and feelings makes a significant difference to most people.
