January – why it doesn’t have be the divorce month

January 10, 2018 1:07 pm

January. What’s to love? In December we climbed the ladder to Christmas, stopping on the rungs of chaos to de-stress with family and friends by drinking and eating far more than we should. We reached the summit, the heady plateau of not even knowing what day it was, pyjama days of leftover cheese and cake. And just as we were getting used to it……boom. January. The month of doom. Unsurprisingly there aren’t many of us who are skipping around like... View Article

Affairs at Christmas

December 4, 2017 11:01 am

Having an affair isn’t seasonal but there is something about this time of year that throws them into the spotlight. Perhaps it’s the stereotype of a stolen kiss at the office party, the media images of happy families or just the general feeling of indulgence. Whatever it is, relationships, good and bad, can take centre stage in December. Many of our clients who are having affairs fear this time of year. The change of routine can make it more difficult...

“The Strictly Curse”. Are we all just as likely to be victims of the workplace affair?

October 31, 2017 12:37 pm

Autumn is here. Darker nights, a nip in the air and of course, Strictly Come Dancing. There may be a change at the top but the winning formula of sequins, spray tans and “joke act” are reassuringly present and correct.

Some are only watching for the frisson and trying to beat the tabloids to their headlines. There’s no... View Article

October 2, 2017 11:46 am

Many of our clients come to us not just with past regrets but wondering if they will come to regret their current actions. Often they are looking for a crystal ball to see what happens next.

This is not just about those having affairs.... View Article

The Fall

September 8, 2017 10:45 am

September. If you’re American you’re entering “The Fall”. Perhaps even more of a time for new beginnings than January. Let’s face it January may have the year change but what else? September sees our kids start a whole new chapter in new schools or school years. The weather instantly tells us to dust off our jackets. We ditch the late summer nights drinking rose and begin to think of red wine by the fire. We welcome back our old friend... View Article

The Age Gap Affair

June 20, 2017 10:09 am

It can be the biggest cliche of them all, older boss meets younger secretary and one thing leads to another. But can the age gap affair work out long term? When a very large proportion of affairs with people of similar ages don’t work out it follows that throwing an age gap into the mix drastically reduces the odds of a happy ever after. But we know probably all know relationships that do make it work. Harrison Ford and Calista... View Article
