Alternative Divorce Radio Show Episode 2
Sometimes challenging, sometimes inspiring. Always authentic. A radio show for real people experiencing divorce and family breakup.
In Episode 2 of the Alternative Divorce
Radio Show, we hear from:
- Psychotherapist Caron Barruw who talks about the trauma of the divorce process itself, and what happens when children get caught up in that process.
- The Divorce Cards readings to help shift your perspective
- The Relationship DJ answers the request: “I read that even Swans get divorced….”
- Kathryn who relates how she fell into a relationship far too soon after divorce, which became abusive, and how she escaped from that situation – and what she learned from it

As you will hear from our interviews, domestic abuse is not always obvious to the person being abused – sounds crazy, I know, but in my role as the Alternative Divorce Guide I have come across this often.
What I love about Kathryn’s interview is her ability to see beyond being a victim. The way she has moved forwards from her situation is truly inspiring.
The interveiws with Psychotherapist Caron Barruw provide a real insight into the children’s perspective on adversarial divorce, and also the wider effects on work life and the cost to employers.
Are you experiencing domestic violence?
Do you know of someone who is experiencing abuse and may need help and support?
The Freephone 24 Hour National Domestic Violence Helpline, run in partnership between Women’s Aid and Refuge, is a national service for women experiencing domestic violence, their family, friends, colleagues and others calling on their behalf.
The Helpline can give support, help and information over the telephone, wherever the caller might be in the country. The Helpline is staffed 24 hours a day by fully trained female helpline support workers and volunteers. All calls are completely confidential. Translation facilities for callers whose first language is not English, and a service for callers who are deaf or hard of hearing are available.
