Resource for UK members

Hello Moderators,

I have recently posted a number of replies to Adam, who is in the UK. I found myself digging around for resources that could be of help to him, as they were to me, with my W's depression/BPD, and with our recovery from the A.

It occurs to me that we actually have a fair sprinkling of UK members. In the aftermath of my own D-day, I scratched around for resources to help me. The principal counselling organisation in the UK is called Relate, and their MC helped my W and I immensely. I know Adam is also going to MC there, and I think that Jerry may have (he certainly knows about them, anyway). They also put out a number of publications and have links to other UK resources. So I wonder if you would consider adding a link to their website, for any new UK members who are in the same position I was in.

www.relate.org.uk

Many thanks,
Dave

Thanks David! We have a fairly large contingient of people from other nations than our US/Canadian majority, and it will be good to have resources to help them. If you have any others (including books), please add them here so that when I do the next update I can find them easily.

Relate

I am in the UK and my husband and I had one session last week with a Relate counsellor (on finding out about his affair). I found it very helpful but the cost was high so I'm sad to say that although I feel we could have BOTH benefited from more counselling, we just can't afford it.

However it is worth mentioning that the counsellor recommended a Relate book called 'After the affair' by Julia Coles. I have ordered it from an eBay seller so we are just waiting for it to arrive.

I am hoping it may be good for us both.
