Women Support groups

There are many situations or events that can alter a women’s life.  Whether caused by a tragic loss, separation caused by domestic violence or divorce from many other reasons, it is reassuring to know that there are many support groups out there for advice and guidance.


Regardless of the event, there is a commonality in the fact that women feel vulnerable and anxious of a future without a partner.

Women can feel:

  • bitter towards their former partner
  • angry about the situation they are facing
  • worried about dealing with complex legal system
  • afraid of being the sole responsibility of their dependent children
  • resentment due to decisions regarding career sacrifices
  • worried about juggling home and work commitments
  • worthless due to a lack of emotional support
