Lead a course?

Are you thinking of running a Restored Lives course?

  • Do you want to help people get through their relationship breakdown?
  • Are you looking for material that is impactful, practical and easy to use?
  • Do you have experience of divorce and separation or helping someone get through relationship breakdown?
  • Do you enjoy hosting people?

If you answered ‘Yes’ to the above questions, you could run a course!

You don’t need to be a relationship counsellor nor be an expert in therapy or divorce law. You just need to have a desire to help people get through relationship breakdown; experience of working with individuals or couples who are divorcing and/or separated; and enjoy hosting people.

The Restored Lives DVD set and workbook written by Erik Castenskiold provide an easy format for the course to be run in any environment. These materials are available to order from Amazon.

We are just finishing our 14th course (c.180 people in total); everyone who comes is helped and in many cases their lives are transformed. So many good things have come from the course it is hard to know where to start: from small things like meeting for coffee, making friendships and going on holiday together, to a battered wife who now meets up with her ex husband once a month for breakfast. She dates her starting to forgive to the moment she stood up and gave her story to the group. We are known locally as “the church who does divorce“ – Course leader on their experience of running the course.

Becoming a leader is easy. We help provide you with all the materials and support you need to get started and we also run a training event in London.

  • "It helped me identify the bitterness I felt, showed me a way to deal with it and gave me hope for the future. Thank you so much!"

    - Helen

  • "Seeing others, going through the same hurts and struggles, made me realise that I was "allowed" to laugh again..."

    - Course Participant

  • "It has given me the building blocks which I can refer to in order to move forward and create a positive future whilst also managing the divorce to gain a positive result."

    - Paula

  • "Thank you for all you have done. Thank you for your encouragement and hope!"

    - Online Course Participant

  • "You have made the group so easy for us to share and come away feeling an awful lot better on a Monday evening - I am not sure I would be feeling so positive (some of the time) without having these Monday evenings."

    - Online Course Participant

  • "It is great having people that understand what I'm going through because they have actually been there or are going through the same."

    - Richard

  • "The best thing about the course is having free and frank conversations with each other about our journeys, emotions, past and future. It is a sustained conversation, not just one night or a weekend"

    - Jenny

  • "The best thing about the course is being connected to a group of people who were in a similar position as I am and hearing how they were handling their situation. Reading the book or watching the videos alone would have been difficult without having a group to discuss with. "

    - Kristen

  • "Balanced, realistic, practical, non-judgemental. Ability to be honest as you were with complete strangers!!!"

    - Jon

  • "Being able to share my feelings with other people in a similar position, not feeling alone as none of my circle of friends are going through this thankfully!!"
