Suffering: Shock? Disbelief? Rejection? Guilt? Anger? Bitterness? Alone with these issues or receiving unhelpful advice?
Dolphin Hypnotherapy Practice is pleased to announce that as a continuation of our charitable work, we are intending to run Divorce Recovery Workshop’s, locally in Bournemouth, twice per annum.

Please register your interest as soon as possible by calling Mr Roberts on 07790 333431, or the national helpline on 07000 781889.
If you require immediate or ongoing support, Bournemouth Heartbreak Support Group meet weekly on Monday evenings at 7.45pm.
Divorce Recovery Workshop is a national charity founded in 1994, with weekly and weekend workshops running in various locations throughout the year.
The workshops are based on the work of founder Dr Bill Flanagan who first ran the program in Colorado Springs in 1977. All workshops are run by volunteers who have suffered the breakdown of a relationship and who have attended the workshop as a participant.
Divorce Recovery Workshops are suitable for anyone of any age, gender, faith or sexual orientation, whom are going through separation or divorce. A relationship breakup or divorce is one of the most traumatic events we can ever face in life.
Participation in the workshop can help people to understand what they are going through, and provides support from others in similar situations, enabling them to adjust to their new status. They may also discover that recovery from the trauma of separation can bring opportunities for personal growth, as Jim Smoke, whose divorce recovery book is referred to in the workshop, famously said, “You can go through a divorce or you can grow through it.”
The Workshop Structure
The workshop offers six 2 hour sessions covering the following topics:
- Is This Really Happening To Me?
- Coping With Your ‘Ex’
- Assuming New Responsibilities
- Letting Go and Forgiveness
- Family Matters
- Thinking About New Relationships
DRW is a proven self-help model run to a defined standard, by volunteers who have personal experience of such loss and first hand experience of the course.
