When: Thursday evenings. 6:30 Support Group, 7:30 Discussion Group
This group is open for new attendees every 8 weeks. As the group grows, we will be starting a second group. If you would like to be notified of group entrance dates or possible new group, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Where: Location is private and will be given only to those planning to attend
Who is it for?
Anyone who has been through a betrayal by their spouse or partner and is struggling with the resulting trauma. Whether you are working at healing with your partner or healing on your own, we want to support you in your journey. Whether this has been a one time affair or a series of problematic out-of-control sexual behaviours, we want to help you get back on your feet.
Why should I consider attending?
When we are wounded by people the best place to begin healing is with people.
In a world that can feel unsafe after betrayal, we want this to be a safe place to land, with people who can empathize with the struggle.
Hearing and seeing other wonderful people, who are dealing with the same things we are, helps our healing process.
For those with a measure of healing and time spent on this journey, it provides us a way to reach back and help those shattered by their first discovery or disclosure.
It also gives us a network to reach out to on our bad days. Members of this group will be invited to join a private group to receive support and encouragement.
This group does not force involvement. You are free to sit in silence and only need to offer something if you want to.
Spouses are often concerned, and rightfully so, about their private lives being hauled out for public inspection. This group is for you and for your healing. We do not need to hear what has gone on in order to identify with the negative results it has had in your life. I ask that you come prepared to apply boundaries, as needed, around your private life.
Group size is limited to a maximum of 12 people.
Format: 2 options
You are free to attend just one of the sessions or both.
Hour 1: Sharing Time. The first hour is for those who need a place to empty some of their heavy baggage. It is designed as a safe place to share what is current in your healing journey and be listened to by people who get it. The people who attend this hour need to be in a place where they can hear other’s experiences.
Hour 2: Learning Time: The second hour is a discussion group based on a particular topic. We will do ‘book club’ style discussion based on a specific podcast or YouTube episodes we will be focussing on. The list of weekly topics and corresponding podcast will be given to you when you enrol.
6:30 – 6:45 Gather and group. Grab a coffee. Settle yourself.
6:45 – 7:30 – Support Group. What is happening in your world? How can we help?
7:30 – 7:45 – Gather/Leave time. Those not wanting to stay for the 2nd hour are free to leave and those coming for the second hour will grab a hot drink and settle in.
7:45 – 8:30 – Topic Discussion based on a podcast, video or book
COST: To Be Discussed
Thanks to a generous donation from a previous client the support group is currently FREE! We are in an 8-week launch. At the end of these 8 weeks, I will get feedback on the format I’ve chosen and will make decisions for the future.
