Why does your business need Breakup & Divorce Support?

Our Coaches are experts in breakup and divorce and understand the emotional roller coaster and specific practical challenges that your employees will be experiencing. We listen to their unique situations and tailor our advice to help them cope better. Our Coaches have a wide range of tools and techniques that are designed to create rapid transformations from the very first session.

As breakup specialists we can enable employees to take more control of their emotions and provide effective methods for them to maintain productivity, clarity of mind and a positive focus. As we navigate the breakup or divorce process alongside them employees feel supported and not alone. They have answers to their questions and time outside of the workplace to process negative emotions in a safe, confidential environment.

If employers ensure that their employees have the right specialist support during their relationship breakdowns it drastically reduces the negative impact on the business. With our support employees can not only survive their divorce but go on to thrive. Our support helps maintain productivity, reduces absenteeism and also boosts staff retention as employees feel cared for.

A business that stands by their staff and supports them through their darkest moments creates loyal and highly motivated employees who are invested in the company and its long-term growth.

  • I have been working with Emma now for eight months and have seen great benefits both in my work life and at home, I always leave the session feeling more in control and able to manage. I always look forward to our sessions and have been telling everyone at the agency how valuable they are to me and how grateful I am to my company for proving this free benefit.



  • When my wife and I separated which eventually led to our divorce, the impact on my work life was huge. There were of course all the practical issues which needed sorting out urgently, which distracted effort from work. Where was I going to live? What were we doing about the kids? How were finances going to work etc. All of this was challenging enough without the emotional fog that clouding everything. Every decision, every action, every step seemed to be in clouded slow motion. I was turning up for work everyday, which felt like a better option that sitting at home thinking about stuff BUT this was probably the least productive period in my career. I turned up physically but emotionally I just wasn't there. I was lucky, my manager and the business were supportive and of course things do get better over time. The opportunity to proactively support people through this trauma / grieving process wasn't there for me but absolutely makes sense to help team members get back to being their best as soon as they can.

  • Lauren’s sessions have been a great help and comfort to me during an unsettling and emotionally difficult time. She has managed to provide both emotional support and practical advice which from our very first conversation have been tailored to my individual situation and needs. Talking to Lauren feels like talking to a very informed and measured friend. Having this provided through work has made me feel more valued and supported by my company and has enabled me to channel my personal worries into a constructive process, which in turn has helped me to continue to function and enjoy my job



  • Louise has been my divorce coach since September 2023. Her unwavering support and guidance were indispensable as I navigated the tumultuous waters of post-separation abuse and legal battles with my ex-partner. Louise's expertise and empathy provided me with the tools and confidence to stand up for myself in court, ensuring my voice was heard and my rights were protected. In addition I must emphasize that my company, recognizing the importance of employee well-being during difficult personal times, offered Louise's expertise as an employee benefit. This not only eased the financial burden but also allowed me to stay focused and productive at work. It shows the forward-thinking support my company offers its employees. By investing in resources like Louise, they demonstrated a genuine commitment to their employees' well-being, ultimately fostering a healthier, more resilient workforce. I am immensely grateful for the opportunity to have worked with Louise, and I commend my company for prioritizing the holistic well-being of its employees. With Louise's guidance and my company's support, I was able to navigate the storm of divorce while maintaining focus and productivity at work, emerging stronger on both personal and professional fronts.

Why does your business need Domestic Abuse Support?

Domestic abuse can destroy lives leaving physical and emotional scars. It takes many forms including physical, financial, emotional and psychological abuse. Research shows that a high proportion of those enduring domestic abuse are targeted at work, negatively affecting those abused as well as their colleagues.

Importantly, the workplace can often be one of the few safe places that a victim can be separate from their abuser and where they are able to ask for and access support.

Your actions as an employer can change and potentially save that person’s life.
