See a psychotherapist / counsellor using Cognitive-behaviour Therapy methods ( CBT ) to work on this issue. And don't exaggerate what you need - you don't need to bury or completely forget everything about the divorce and related issues - you need to get it back into proportion and to let it take its place within your past, without causing pain and excessive regrets ; to enable you to face forwards and deal with your future, rather than driving forwards while looking so much in the rear-view mirror.
It may be well worth investing in such treatment privately ; or explore what may be available through your nearest major state / provincial hospital or medical school.

You can look for a support group in your area. FAMSA and Lifeline also offers affordable counselling. Some churches offer a course called Divorce Care that I hear good things about.

Write down all these issues on separate pieces of paper. Then work through them one by one. Think about what you have learnt from the incident or experience and how that might change the way you do or think about things in the future. Write those insights down on a different paper. When you''re done with an issue, burn the paper or tear it into little strips and throw it away. Visualise the issue disappearing into the distance. In future when you think about any of these problems, refer back to your writing on how you changed and grew as a person in the process.
