We hope that you are encouraged by our site’s articles.
Divorce is one of life’s most stressful event and the sufferers take at least 2-3 years to be able to function normally again.
Counsellors also need to be patient with our divorced clients as they often tackle complicating deep-seated emotional problems of a divorce situation.
The support site for the divorced community was started two years ago when I realised that there aren’t much support groups around in our local community.
Most of the groups meeting currently only provide a social platform but nothing that really professionally takes care of the grieving needs of the large divorced community.
HELP – a government-funded social initiative only provides support to the single parents and children.
What about those divorced adults who do not have kids? Where do they turn to for specialised help?
Many saw professional counsellors but nothing beats having an environment which allows them to share their issues together with others caught in similar circumstances.
Last year, more than 7,800 annulments were filed and this figure does not look like going down anytime soon.
Many divorced readers have told me that they could only locate our support site when they googled for support groups for the divorced.
We are flattered by their support but yet felt aghast that our country provides so little support to those who are suffering from the ill-effects of a divorce.
We hope to be able to meet that huge gaping need and hopefully our government will be able to fund our initiative in future.
We have set aside four support series per year and so far have conducted three already. The fourth series are currently in progress.
Each support series are attended by 7-8 participants and a moderator/counsellor will be present to manage the sessions.
The sessions mainly focus on helping the newly divorced manage their grief and hopefully they will continue to support one another after the sessions.
Meanwhile, we will plough on even though we operate with a shoe-string budget derived largely from the donating public.
Thanks all for having faith and trust in our efforts to meet a huge yearning need within the divorced community.
Do email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any suggestions on how to better our efforts to engage the divorced community.
Remember we are here for you.
