Religious Deconstruction

Deconstruction refers to the process a person undergoes when they investigate the framework (typically a religious belief system) that they've used to make sense of the world.

This process can be unsettling and isolating.

Therapy during or after religious deconstruction can provide a space to process the emotional and relational turmoil that sometimes accompanies deconstructing. Common topics include shame, lack of self-trust, and low self-knowledge.

A therapist helps someone deconstructing navigate their experience. They don't answer questions of theology or dogma. In other words, the role of a therapist is just that – a therapist, not a spiritual advisor or faith expert.
