We are delighted to announce our next Wellbeing Event at Global Asset Manager Schroders on The Effect of the Pandemic on Relationships.

This talk is for Schroders’ employees who are welcome to invite their partner or spouse to attend.

How has the pandemic changed our relationships with our partners? What can be done to address the differences lockdown has magnified?

Has Covid caused damage to your relationship? Are you finding it hard to get your relationship mojo back? You are not alone. Many couples are taking a long hard look at their relationships. The many months of confined living coupled with uncertainty and stress have affected 25% of relationships adversely. Without the normal support mechanisms to rely on, unhelpful and sometimes destructive ways of coping can be triggered.

Through the lockdown lens, is a break-up inevitable? What can be done to reframe the conversation when lockdown is accentuating differences?

Pam Custers and Barbara Reeves will discuss their experiences as a Relationship Coach and Family lawyer  respectively. They will address those stresses that can adversely impact on family life in lockdown as well as the available legal and counselling tools to assist.
