Ever wondered how you’re going to get through one moment, let alone one day? In episode 8 of Hope Beyond Abuse, Lisa interviews Tamara from Mindful Separation. They discuss how mindfulness helps victims while going through separation just by taking one moment at a time or focusing on one thing at a time. Tamara was a practising family lawyer who now helps individuals and couples through separation. She has a powerful perspective on abuse and separation and brings some small practical things that you can do to help get you through.
