Divorce Support Groups
What I do is to help individuals rediscover what they have lost in their relationships and show them in a practical way how to create helpful ways of responding to their own and other’s vulnerability.
Protecting your children from the harmful effects of family separation, and allowing yourself to discover support and empowerment through skilled guidance, is the primary aim of most parents dealing with divorce and breakup.
- Constructive resolution to relationship problems
- Reduced risks of ﬁnancial and emotional disaster
- Consideration of the welfare of children in cases of separation
- Improved self-esteem and self-conﬁdence
- Improved mental and emotional health for parents and children
Perhaps you are divorcing, separating or divorced; we can help you get clarity so you can think things through, and help you ﬁnd focus so you can reﬂect on your needs and possibilities.
You will receive a unique service and an opportunity to talk in a safe space either in individual session or in small support groups of up to eight people about the psychological and emotional impact of their separation and/or divorce.
Each group will run for one-and-a half hours each week at the same time over 10 weeks. You will need to attend the whole ten weeks to qualify for the reduced fee.
The aim is to provide a quiet place to grieve the loss of family unit, to feel less isolated, share ideas, learn from others and feel empowered, in control, conﬁdent to take control of your life and gain independence.
