Wellingborough is a market town in the “Wellingborough District” of the county which is known as “The Rose of the Shires”, Northamptonshire, 11 miles from Northampton on the north side of the River Nene. Originally named “Wendelingburgh”, the Anglo-Saxon settlement is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 as “Wendelburie”.
Perhaps one of the most exciting attractions in Wellingborough is the Santa Pod Raceway, Europe’s first permanent drag racing venue for 1/4- and 1/8-mile racing. It was built on a disused Second World War air base, once used by the 92nd Bomber Group (NN29 7XA).

Relationship breakdowns and heartache
Even if you were the one to instigate the breakup, the end of a marriage or relationship is difficult and will throw your life into turmoil as you realise there are lots of issues to work through with the person you no longer want to be with. Communications will be tricky and stressful. Maybe you didn’t see the break-up coming and are in shock or have escaped a violent marriage and don’t know which way to turn. Whatever the reason, dealing with your feelings isn’t easy. The other side of the coin could be that you still want to be with your partner and to be married. Releasing a relationship for whatever reason, can leave the future looking very bleak and intimidating. It’s a difficult time. Don’t be afraid to ask for help.

You will be forced to deal with issues you never thought you would have to consider such as sharing childcare, moving house, dealing with in-laws and if the separation isn’t amicable you could be led into lengthy court proceedings; dealing with solicitors and legal jargon. All this will take its toll on your mental wellbeing. You have to remember that thousands of people every year go through this process too. The majority of them go onto lead happy and enriched lives and say that they are the happiest they have ever been. There is light at the end of the tunnel, you just need to find a way to see it and maybe you need someone to guide you to that illumination.
You’re likely to feel an abundance of emotions; one minute on a high of adrenalin when something goes your way and the next grieving for what you believe you have lost.

Bereavement and Financial Planning
The death of a spouse may result in dealing with very difficult financial matters, especially for those who may be inexperienced. Many counsellors comment that frequently, the anger part of the grieving process stems from a partner being left to deal with “money worries”. Often the person left behind has never ever had to deal with such matters as their partner took charge of bills etc. If the bereavement was premature or unexpected, this can be even more terrifying.
