An eight-week course for people coming to terms with the ending of a relationship

The end of a relationship or marriage can be a difficult and painful experience. It can leave you feeling confused, lonely and lacking in confidence in yourself and the future. Feelings of betrayal, guilt or rejection are common. Anger, sadness and confusion are often intense. Moving forward can be hard when trust, self-confidence and self-esteem have been shaken.

In these eight weekly sessions we look at how relationships work and why they some- times go wrong. We consider ways of managing our own needs as well as those of family and friends, and of increasing the skills and confidence needed to build new relationships in the future. You will meet men and women in similar situations, have the chance to share experiences in a confidential group and make new friends.

Course aims

  • To help people understand and deal with the emotions and feelings they are experiencing.
  • To increase understanding of how and why relationships begin and why they sometimes end.
  • To help develop confidence and a better foundation for forming and sustaining future relationships.
  • To provide an opportunity for people working through similar experiences to share and learn together.

Date and venue

Relate Oxfordshire will be running an eight-week course on Thursday evenings starting on 22 April 2010 at our offices at 33 Iffley Road, Oxford. The sessions will commence at 7pm each evening and will finish at 9pm. There will be a short break when tea and coffee and biscuits will be provided.

We are sorry but this lovely charity below has not received funding and has ceased to operate. Please contact your local relate office for details of courses and help on offer. Please kindly mention Divorce Aid.

There is a group of people not connected with Aquila who run small 'self-help' workshops. They are not trained professionals but people who have been through divorce and have attended workshops themselves. Please see http://www.drw.org.uk/

The Aquila Care Trust - has ceased activities
Very often, those experiencing relationship breakdown,
separation or divorce feel a great need of support from others who are going through the same thing. Feelings of isolation, fear for the future and uncertainty about how to "pick up the pieces" are very natural and common reactions. We are delighted therefore, to be able to let you know of a
network of independent support groups, operating in locations across the UK, who give support to people in this situation.

Each of these groups had their origins in the Aquila Care Trust, a
registered charity which existed between 1991 and 2007 to support those experiencing the trauma of relationship breakdown. These groups are all run by men and women who have been through this experience themselves and
recovered. They offer support, understanding, guidance, care and
companionship to help you put your life back together.

Their support services include a programme called Breakthrough, run either over 8 weeks or as a residential or non-residential weekend programme, designed to help you meet with others in the same situation and to explore together the main
emotional and practical issues you face.
The aim of Breakthrough is to help participants develop strategies for coping and give them hope that they can
move ahead positively with their lives.
