    I’m finding that all online organisations urge anyone who has been or is going through a separation to talk about it as often as possible. They also advocate approaching one of the many support groups available throughout the UK yet I can’t seem find any – not in my area anyway. I separated from my husband in April 2019 and 3 months afterwards he met someone whilst on holiday with my 2 children. He chose to tell me about his new relationship 2 weeks before Christmas. He seems blissfully happy though frustrated that his children aren’t yet happy to play happy families with his new girlfriend and her child. I have a lot of hurt and resentment to work through, following years of emotional neglect throughout our marriage but at the same time I’m desperate to let go, to see things for what they really were and stop obsessing about what my husband (not yet divorced) and his new partner are doing. I would love to have the opportunity to talk to others who have been through a separation and are willing to pass on  some help and advice. Please let me know if you have time to spare and live in Richmond, Kew, Chiswick, Twickenham, St Margaret’s or if you know of any supports groups in this area.

    Thank you so much.

    hi Milli. Thanks for getting in touch. Shall we arrange to meet for a coffee and post this so that others in the area can join us?

    That’s a great idea. I can’t meet up until Sunday or Monday. Let’s meet for coffee. Where exactly do you live? I am not sure if we can message privately or we can only text through online forum??

    Hi all

    Its good to see you all chatting.  If you wish to private message you can do so by clicking on the user name.  You will then see a box with ‘private message’  This is how you can chat privately.

    Kind regards, Justine

    Hi ladies I live near Stansted airport but I drive and I’ve gone through hair times too. I did reply on a post on this forum explaining all my situation as it’s long winded but I’m too looking for a group to meet up with regularly and make new like minded friends through our bsd times in our lifes. I’m willing to drive and know Richmond, my nans buried there. The forum I replied to moment ago has 2 other ladies on who are looking in meeting other single parents struggling emotionally too. I feel we could become a great support group for one another and new friends too. Please let me know if u ok I meet up too and mention to other 2 ladies. Maybe we could arrange  monthly gathering and make it a social gathering too rather than just sit there in a coffee shop all feeling like we’re gonna break out in tears. So suggestion something like bowling? We get to have fun and chat away too. Just an idea and an example of something to do, could be anything if anyone else has an idea?

    Hey Sabrina. I think what you need is a friend to converse with and someone to listen to everything you have got inside.
