Divorce is challenging and often overwhelming for those who find themselves having to negotiate a fractured relationship. Through teaching and caring support this program aims to give participants an understanding of the divorce experience, provide a safe place to process grief and loss and find skills and courage to rebuild.
Participants will commence the journey toward renewed strength, finding practical help and hope for the future. This program draws from research and best practice in the fields of psychology, sociology, education and theology. It includes the life experiences and reflections of those who have been through divorce.

Search For Life
Human beings are spectacular, puzzling, brilliant - and broken. Why do so many contradictions exist in our lives?
Everyone needs to understand the cause of our most basic struggles and find a solution to them if life is going to be fulfilling and happy.
Without insight and answers to the human dilemma individuals resort to inadequate and destructive patterns of behaviour to address feelings of low self esteem, inadequacy, emptiness and insecurity. Most of us don't recognise that these patterns exist or how they affect us. Search for Life clearly identifies the cause of so many human tensions and introduces participants to the healing power of truth in a caring and safe environment.

"My life has completely changed. I am so grateful - I would gladly do another ten weeks of Search if I could."
"Why didn't anyone tell us this stuff before? Everyone should learn these simple skills, they change your life for ever."

Woman to woman
