    Relaunching your career

    In many families, it’s common for one person in a relationship to take a step back in their career to help with the mental load and logistics of running the home and children. But, when a relationship ends, the person who has been the primary carer will often find themselves needing to increase their earning capacity and in some cases, they might have been out of the workforce for years. On the show today, we talk about relaunching your career. What options are available? What do you say on your CV? Where do you even begin?

    How to have a civil relationship with your ex

    How to have a civil relationship with your ex

    When a person goes from your partner to your ex it can be incredibly hard to remember that you can’t talk to them the way you used to. You can’t vent to them, and you can’t express your anger at them like you might have done when you were together. Ex-etiquette is tricky - but, it’s do-able. And that’s what we’re here to help you achieve. On the show today Cass and Annaliese are joined by Rachel Voysey from the Relationship Room to walk us through how to have a civil relationship with your ex.
