We are based in Poole and aim to provide support to people especially in the difficult early stages of relationship breakups and separations. Support will be in the form of semi structured evening meetings with other people in similar positions. Every breakup and separation is different but the difficulties we all face are common. There will short talks in areas such as the psychological impact of separation, dealing with grief,  coping with the enormous change, discovering oneself,  creating a new parenting relationship and communication. The emphasis is very much on allowing time for people to share their own stories and to get to know each other. We will provide a selection of books and materials that can help, and offer guidance on where to find further support.
