Parental separation support

Many children experience emotions of confusion, grief and sadness when their parents separate or divorce. Supporting Children After Separation is designed to make children feel less alone while encouraging them to speak about their feelings during challenging changes.


In a safe, loving and warm environment, we offer children one-on-one counselling with tertiary-qualified counsellors. Using activities like art and sand therapy, kids are encouraged to open up about their fears and concerns – their voice is extremely important in the separation process.
