Parental separation support

Parental separation can be complicated, confusing and painful especially for children, but we are here to support parents to manage complex emotions, reduce conflict and improve co-parenting skills. Ensuring children feel safe, heard and loved throughout the separation is at the heart of what we do – their wellbeing is always the priority.


Through a six-module course, we equip parents with strategies on how to communicate respectfully, how to work through issues positively and how to parent better into the future. The aim is to minimise the impact on children, as well as build loving parent-child relationships despite new living arrangements.


We can also offer post-separation counselling.
