This evening I have been to a committee meeting preparing for the launch of a new ladies’ networking group called Assist. One of the unique facets of the group is going to be its buddy or chaperone system, pairing one member up with another, to help and provide support where required. We’ve even come up with a special name for this entity of Proficiam from the Latin word proficiere meaning to assist.

There are many times in our lives when we need the help of someone, to lean on, aid and guide us. That’s why everyone should try to seek out a sensible, reliable person to assist them when they go through the trauma of separation. A friend or relative who will accompany you when you see your solicitor can be invaluable. A pal who will sit up with you when you want to unload late at night is very special. But that brave person who is prepared to be honest and subtle as well as supportive, is irreplaceable.

No one should have to go through a divorce unsupported. It can be a very turbulent time and the more people to help you find your way, the better.
