Divorce and Separation

help with separation

We are open to help individuals, couples and familes affected by divorce online,

We offer a consultation service to support you in going through this process, overcoming the emotional difficulties associated with it and developing the confidence to rebuild your life.

How it works

The Separation and Divorce Service is for couples or individuals prior to, during, or following separation, divorce, or civil partnership dissolution. This service is aimed at couples or individuals.

The service offers a focused opportunity to think about your individual situation. The aim is to help both individuals and couples think about their current struggles with the overall aim of fostering development for all concerned. You will see one of our experienced couple psychotherapists or relationship coun-sellors who specialise in this area. The service is not mediation.

How can the Separation and Divorce service help?

The reasons for separating, divorcing or dissolving a civil partnership are many, and the process itself can be painful and complicated. Our experience suggests that when facing such a crisis people can be helped by an opportunity to make sense of their emotional state.
