Find Free Relationship Advice
Separation and divorce can be a painful and stressful experience for all involved; the two of you as well as your children and other close family members, but there are many organisations, local and national, who offer free relationship advice and counselling during this difficult period in your life.
If you are finding life is getting you down and you want to try to resolve the issues you are facing, then it is time to take the first positive step. Seeking professional help from a trained counsellor or organisation will help you by giving you the opportunity to talk things through whilst also providing you with effective coping strategies so you can manage your problems in a more constructive way.
We always advise that you contact your GP in the first instance, and if they feel you will benefit from talking to a trained therapist, they may refer you to a local therapy clinic. One such local organisation is TalkPlus, who provide an excellent range of psychological therapies across North Hampshire including CBT, Behavioural Activation, Cognitive Restructuring and Problem Solving.
