Divorce is tough,

no one will dispute that, and just like bereavement, it can be the most

difficult time a person will ever go through.

With so much

emotion, anxiety and hurt in the equation it can be difficult for people to

know where to turn for help. You may feel you are overburdening friends and

family and also that no-one really understands what you are going through.  It can make you feel very alone and isolated

even though statistically you know you are not the only one. 

This increase in

the divorce statistics has resulted in the growth of divorce  support, as a means of dealing with, at

times, overwhelming emotions and overcoming the anxiety and stress that  people experience both, during and after


If people need

help, they typically book a series of individual weekly sessions with a

counsellor or therapist, which can last weeks or months. Now, Pimlico residents have an

added  approach to dealing with the pain

of divorce. In our fast paced, time poor society, divorce workouts (or

workshops, to us in the UK)

are now the new way to battle through your heartache – and there isn't a shred

of lycra in sight.

Successful in the

US for many years now, divorce workshops are 

one day workshops set up to help people feel better sooner, feel less

alone and isolated, make new friends with people who they have much in common and

begin to understand and cope with bewildering emotions.  These divorce workshops are also designed to

help people understand that divorce is not only an end but is also a new


Divorce Workshops

run by Divorce Support Group are small and relaxed and at the end, everyone

exchanges contact details and carries on seeing each other.  It is an enormously helpful experience to

share stories, realise you are not the only one and to learn how others cope. Divorce

Support Group, is the UK's

only professionally run organisation specifically set up for helping

people cope with and manage their divorce.

Charlotte Friedman, founder of Divorce Support Group says

''Workshops have different benefits to individual counselling which we also

offer too.  They give a one day

experience of the 10 week local groups that we run the rest of the time.  The Workshops are once a month on a Saturday

which makes it easier for people to attend if they find 10 weeks difficult to

manage time-wise."

There is no quick

and easy solution to getting over your divorce. Divorce is a process and it is

important to understand how to manage your feelings.   You can ensure though that you are dealing

with it in the best way possible by talking to a professional who will listen

and provide you with understanding and help. 

Divorce Support Group was set up to help make separation manageable.
