Adoption has a tendency to affect not only the adopted child and the adoptive parents, but also everyone else in the extended family. The emotional effects of adoption can cause a wide range of emotional effects which can be addressed by adoption counselling.
An adoption counsellor could assist families and individuals who have been touched by adoption to deal with any emotional issues that surround it. During individual or group adoption counselling sessions, the therapist will help clients to explore their emotions and understand why they feel a certain way. They will learn how to develop better stress management techniques and develop coping strategies.
Most adoption counsellors will use a range of approaches to suit each individual case and their therapies may include family, psychodynamic or psychoanalytic therapy. These therapies deal with the ways in which people's past thoughts affect their current perceptions and behaviours. They also will address current issues.

Divorce mediation is a great option for couples standing at the end of a marriage, which is one of the most stressful experiences in life. While the partner who is left behind is bound to be filled with grief, anger, guilt, shame, anxiety and fear, the one who opts to leave is not free from emotional issues, either. The stress compounds when children are involved and can cause lengthy and gut-wrenching legal battles.
Therapy can help couples who are in doubt about the future of their marriage, while others require help transitioning from being one of a couple to becoming single.
Divorce Mediation offers both parties the opportunity to find closure and to come to terms with some of the outstanding issues of divorce that may otherwise extend litigation time and costs.
