One in three marriages ends in divorce. Cohabitation, marriage, divorce and re-marriage are becoming a normal part of the pattern of everyday life. However, the effects of such a pattern on the adults and children involved can be extremely detrimental if handled badly.

In Moving On, Suzie Hayman draws on her many years experience as a Relate counsellor and agony aunt and provides information, advice and practical strategies to help you cope, as positively as possible, with the stress of breaking up with your partner.

You will learn how to manage negative feelings, help your children through the difficult process, communicate with your partner and children throughout, cope with shared parenting responsibilities and sort out financial issues.

Sympathetic, sound and full of positive, practical advice, this is an invaluable guide for all those facing the breakdown of their relationship

Loving in later life book cover

Is sex wasted on the young? Marj Thoburn thinks it might be. This complete guide to sex, loving and relationships for the 50s-80s age group is a positive, constructive and celebratory guide which suggests that life - and loving sex - begin at 50+. Inside every older person is a young person trying to come to terms with ageing. This books looks at the physical and psychological changes that may present challenges to older couples and provides practical exercises and strategies for coping, and learning, together.

For example:

  • How do you maintain your self-esteem when your body stops responding the way it used to?
  • What can you do if your partner seems more attracted to people who are younger than you?
  • How do you begin a new relationship if you find yourself divorced, separated, widowed or single in older life?
  • How do you begin to get to know each other again once the children have left home?

Written with understanding and humour, and drawing on a wide range of case studies, this invaluable book will offer a wealth of advice for those who want to keep improving the quality of their relationship - whatever their age.

This book is only available to buy as an Kindle ebook
