What we're about

If you are going through a divorce, thinking about a divorce, are newly separated, or already divorced, then this group is for you.

You may be feeling lonely, unsupported or simply looking for friendly help & advice in order to move on. Afterall, what other life event can uproot you from your home, shake your financial security, reduce your time with your children and make friends and family disappear overnight? Sometimes you don’t know where to turn, or just feel angry or sad.

That’s where we at Divorce Club Birmingham can help.

We know it can be really tough going through a divorce. It’s hard to find people who know how you feel unless they’ve been through it. Divorce Club Birmingham is hosted by people who have been through a divorce and who know exactly what you’re going through (whatsmore our co-founder Isabelle is a clinical psychologist). So we know that the best remedy for the pain of divorce is to meet others in the same boat and make a fresh start. We also know that trying to navigate the legal and financial side is an additional pressure, just when you’re at your lowest ebb.

Divorce Club Birmingham (www.divorceclub.com) connects people to every single resource they may need to get through a divorce from the moment of separation to moving on and meeting someone new. We aim to reduce the sense of isolation and overwhelm in the first stage of separation but also look to help people identify how to look forward and rebuild their lives. We fundamentally believe out of the ashes of the end of a relationship, new beginnings and a huge opportunity for growth arise.

For newly separated people we offer advice and help on the process and emotional overwhelm. As people go through the process they have continuous access to legal and financial advice while also being able to tap into a community of people who can share the roller coaster of milestones, difficulties and triumphs. And for those in the later stages we offer coaching for goal setting, and online sessions for moving on, dating and growth.

Divorce Club Birmingham provides expert information that takes the mystery and fear out of divorce. We have guest speakers from top law firms, mediators, psychologists, parenting experts, divorce coaches, financial advisors, dating experts and many more - advice that usually costs a lot of money!

For less than the price of a weekly takeout coffee, you can join us and meet other people who know exactly what you’re going through.

So we hope that you invest in giving yourself a better divorce, and a better recovery. We passionately believe that you can have an amazing life after divorce! There is such an opportunity for growth and many of our members have said how much happier they are two, three, four years down the line – so hang on in there. Start again, with us.

We look forward to meeting you!

Upcoming events (4+)

Goal setting and catch-up

Online event

Divorce is a real opportunity for change, as you have the freedom to do so much more.

You can rediscover who you are, what you want to do, reclaim your passions and your purpose.

In the “Goal setting and catch-up” the aim is to create a place where you can join others to explore your goals, define them and work out a plan to fulfil them.

Dr Isabelle Hung, who facilitates, the group, is a clinical psychologist who specialises in helping people make changes to their identity by identifying value-led goals, and working with people to achieve them.

The group will check in fortnightly to see the progress you have made towards your goals. And, if there has been no progress, the group is here to offer the support and encouragement you might need.

There will also be time for some general chit chat.

You will be in small groups so that you have the opportunity to get to know people.

Change is nearly always frightening and difficult, especially after a divorce. We hope that this meetup will make it fun and exciting.
