Why does divorce seem so cutthroat?

Divorce triggers our core fears – fears that threaten our ‘sense of self’ which often makes our responses disproportionate to the actual events. Wrongs become bigger, we take everything the worst way, and we blow things out of proportion. Add to this the concept of trying to ‘win’ your divorce at the expense of the other – and we have the makings of World War III. At the Divorce Company we ask that all people seek counselling to understand what is driving them to make choices that are only making things worse. Only with an understanding of yourself can you come to the table prepared to make decisions that are reasonable for you and in the best interests of the children. The Divorce Company helps people to reduce the stress, which reduces the conflict – and this leads to a better outcome.
