Diana (aged 35) received counselling support at one of the Strengthening Families Programme@Family Service Centres and learned ways to cope better.
“I wanted to move on with my life but even after a few years of divorce, I was still disturbed by the thought of how my ex-husband betrayed me previously. My counsellor patiently coached me to look at the event in a different light and to have a more balanced view of what actually happened. She taught me various ways to process the joys and frustrations I experienced in the marriage. She also explored my concerns with me and together, we came up with practical solutions for what I can do. I’m a lot happier and am less bothered by the divorce. I am able to live my life with a more balanced view of my situation. I feel like I am in better control of my life.”
