I'm glad my heartbreak happened when it did, early on enough for me to realise it wasn't just my feelings that mattered. If you've been heartbroken, you'll know what I mean and if you haven't? Well, just pray that when your time comes it's swift and fixable - and that it comes before you break too many hearts yourself.

Think before you cheat on someone. The outcome is never good. You hurt people along the way. If you think you are going to cheat, end the relationship you are in before you hurt them or better still realise what a great person you are with and just don't cheat.

In a situation where a person finds themselves 'dumped' the chances are they are unlikely to be of sane enough mind to walk down the street without collapsing in a crumpled heap, much less, select a suitable aromatherapy treatment. They will feel rage, they will feel fury, they will feel a burning resentment and bitterness for every man walking the planet.

Don't try to convince your therapist that you are the 'good one' in the relationship. There isn't a good one in most marriages and you won't make any progress if one, or both of you, refuse to take responsibility for your contribution to the crisis.

In the car the phone is hooked up to loud speaker and a call comes through as we whizz through an underpass. It's a woman's voice, high pitched and breathy, speaking in an unknown Eastern European language. They have a short conversation and after she hangs up I start giggling and ask who the hell it was... "It was my wife" he said flatly.

I urge the broken hearted to get off the sofa, put down your Ben & Jerry's and take up a form of sport - it doesn't matter what it is but just get moving. Not only will this heal the heart and mind, but remember you are now single so you want to get in shape!

Indeed, love probably means as many different things as there are people - from the unselfish care of a Mother Teresa to the heart-pounding passion of star-crossed lovers Romeo and Juliet. Yet with Valentine's Day upon us it's the romantic variety tugging at our heartstrings, especially if we lack that special someone to share it with.

Happy New Year is it? My arse! It's only a fortnight into 2014, and I've just been dumped, like countless thousands of other people in January. I've become another statistic - another soul cast adrift on a winter wreck of broken hearts, created by the likes of Divorce Day, Blue Monday, and oh heck, just because it's THAT time of year.

January not only sees the most depressing month of the year because of tighter clothes and maxed credit cards but it also holds the record for most couples filing for divorce. THOUSANDS of warring couples will have made Monday 'Divorce Monday' as their relationships hit the buffers.

On Having Casual Sex Without Being an A** About It

Casual sex should be with somebody you actually like. My new rule of thumb is to only shag men I don't mind sleeping over, and am okay with kissing goodbye when they leave. Anyone else isn't worth my time- and if I'm not prepared to make at least that much effort, I'm probably not worth theirs, either.

The general assumption that 'time heals' makes people do nothing about their emotional pains. It validates the idea that prolonged anxiety or depression will eventually just go away. Even the language of 'moving on' implies that some kind of temporal 'passing' is required to get over something. This is simply not true.

He raises an eyebrow in what appears to be a well-practised move. My buttocks clench. "Same thing happens every time," he says. "They fall in love, I get bored, and I break their heart. Every. Fucking. Time." His eyes rest on me as he finishes his little speech.

Nine times out of 10 my clients come to me because they are angry and hurt at their ex because they feel betrayed by him or because in their mind he has done something wrong. Whatever the situation is, it's really important to let go of the bitterness, as the only person it really hurts is you.

"I'm not happy anymore," they finally say. You knew, but needed to hear it anyway. It's a test: go on. Do it. See if you can hurt me. They do and it stings. Still, you're an independent woman- you've taken bigger knocks than this.

Breaking up with someone you care about is never easy, and it might feel like you'll never love again. Once the initial shock of the breakup wears off, it doesn't mean that your feelings magically disappear as well--if only it were that easy.
