Dealing with stress during divorce and separation

Divorce or separation is known to be one of the most stressful life events you can go through, along with events such as the death of a loved one and moving home.

Divorce or relationship breakdown is a stressful, life-changing event and it is important to take care of yourself, as the strain and upset of your breakup can leave you psychologically and physically vulnerable.

However, there are some important things you can do to help manage this stress during your divorce or separation:

  • Family mediation is much quicker, less stressful and usually cheaper than heading straight to court.
  • It enables you to shape long-term solutions that are in your family’s best interests.
  • The process allows families to keep control of their own destinies, instead of handing it over to courts

Our mediators can help you resolve all the practical, legal, emotional and financial issues that arise from separation. They help families make long-lasting arrangements that benefit everyone in the family, especially the children. You may be surprised at the level of agreement you can achieve with the help of our expert, experienced family mediators. Only in exceptional cases is no agreement reached. Mediation is free for those eligible for legal aid. We can help with that assessment and you may also be able to access the family mediation voucher scheme with a £500 contribution to your costs.

Our fully qualified mediators are trained in all aspects of family law. And we are the leading training providers for family mediators.
