Healing After Divorce Celebrates Its First Anniversary
Joanne Lyons, owner of "Healing After Divorce," celebrates the first anniversary of her company. The business provides free support in a virtual environment. The company web site has had visitors from all around the world. It provides blogs, articles and a book. Joanne can be reached for interviews and reviews through the contact page of the web site.

After publishing her book, Joanne established the online company to meet the need of support for people all over the world. Some organizations and mega-churches provide separated and divorced support groups dispelling the feelings of aloneness and facilitating recovery. Unfortunately, support groups can’t always be found, especially in small towns and rural areas. Some persons receive professional care through individual counseling. Typically, many going through divorce can’t afford it. The expense of two separate residences and legal fees coupled with the economic restraints of the times, make the cost of counseling prohibitive. The company web site has had visitors from the United States, Canada, U.K., Europe, India, Africa and more.
The online company provides support in three ways: blogs, articles and a book. The blogs provide a forum for the separated and divorced as they read and complete the exercises in the book. Blogging with others online simulates live group therapy sessions. Joanne has updated the web site throughout the year by producing new material and posting online articles. The web articles, as well as the book, give positive, constructive advice. The pertinent topics in the book address issues using analogy. It seems easy to do but don’t fool yourself. Soul-searching is work and well worth the permanent healing results of restored strength and self-confidence.
Joanne earned her Master’s degree in Guidance and Counseling and has personally experienced the emotional pain of divorce. "I have really enjoyed helping others heal by using my life, formal education in psychology and individual and group therapy experience. After one year, I see how much our global society needs it."
She published in 2008. She facilitated a church sponsored separated and divorced group early in 2009. In late April she established her company, "Healing After Divorce." Her book can be purchased from major online bookstores. The blogs and articles are free. Joanne can be reached for interviews and reviews through the contact page of the web site.
