Divorce and Breakup from a long-term relationship is one of the most stressful events that can happen to a human being.
I know how it feels:
In our culture we rush to put a lid on emotions and the natural process that needs to happen to move forward successfully and freely.
But you can't skip emotional steps.
Just burying the feelings will not help us to learn from our experience, live authentically, or move forward with real freedom.
And even if you are done with the legal part of the divorce, the emotional divorce will take its time to be resolved. Healing takes time, but it's worth it.
Will it help me if I join the Divorce Support Group?
It is proved that people that have participated in our Divorce Support Group for a few months have felt more in peace with the (painful) process of the breakup or the divorce, less lonely, more connected with others and belonging to a group, and they have admitted that they are strong and ready to move on without any emotional leftovers (anger, sorrow, regret, rejection) or burden from the previous relationship.
They also reported that their next relationship was different: lighter, joyful, more trusting, loving and caring.
Even during the periods that they were single, they still enjoyed their time alone and they felt so confident as they have never been before.
About our members
We are a support group for men and women of all ages who are in any stage of separation, divorce or post-divorce or breakup from a long-term relationship.
Your therapist and facilitator, licenced psychologist Vassia Sarantopoulou, holds the scientific background and the warm personality to support you through such an overwhelming experience.
We have been running our Divorce Support Groups for more than 6 years and our members have been loving it!
About the 6-month programme & the meetings
Through this program, you will have access to a 6-module curriculum that will guide you through the processing of your divorce. Each module has been designed and enriched with all the important aspects of each divorce stage.
The main aim is that you will be supported in order to cope, to recover as well as to rebuild your new life after the divorce.
If you additionally opt for the Support Group, you will have access to our bi-monthly meetings.
In the group we help each other navigate the emotional roller coaster we all experience while going through this difficult time in our lives with the support and guidance of our psychologist Vassia Sarantopoulou.
At our meetings we provide POSITIVE support in a NON-JUDGMENTAL setting where each member has a chance to discuss the evening's topic or any issue that is relevant to his/her situation.
DO NOT FORGET: While divorce is an end of a marriage, it also provides the opportunity for starting over and rebuilding the life you want.
Bring only your concerns, questions, open minds and warm hearts!

"I've recently joined a new Divorce Support Group. I didn't know what to expect but each time I have been, I've noticed that there is a healing 'energy' in the room. People share their stories and situations in a safe way. It's a small intimate group, it feels good to have a window to share with others travelling a similarly difficult journey. Vassia who facilitates holds the group in a very talented way. She gives home exercises that are really causing me to be brave and deepen the process of acceptance."
"Vassia is a skillful, caring, empathetic and assertive counselor.
With her energy and her endless will to help, the support group exceeds our expectations."
