$20.00 per session

What happens at a group?

The group members range from newly separated, separated from committed relationships and/or in the process of getting divorced, to after the divorce is final. Bring your questions and experiences. Share at the level you feel comfortable. This is a place where you are welcomed to listen and talk about what is happening in your life with people who can understand and really “get” what you are going through.

Within the group you will find understanding, support and encouragement through both your personal sharing, as well as through hearing the different stories, perspectives and experiences of others. Begin to heal, discover who you are now, find new strengths, clarity and direction.

Some of the issues we talk about are:

We focus on where you are at, what you are struggling with, what questions you have and how to make sense of what you are feeling. Some people come just to listen to other’s stories and share a bit of their own. The group is design to be a place that offers you a sense of community when your life is in the midst of a major change. A place of refuge where you can share what’s going on in your life and people understand.
