Counselling

 

At FLiP we take a unique approach to family law. We combine the exceptional expertise of our lawyers, mediators and arbitrators with the support of our in-house counsellors and family consultants to offer insight and understanding which is second to none.

You needn’t tackle this alone. Navigate every turn with us, in partnership.

Our Expertise →

We have a team of in-house counsellors with a wealth of experience in helping couples cope with the challenges of relationships. They offer a place to reflect on your relationship in a confidential and stigma-free way.

How Can Our Counsellors Help You? →

Our counsellors can work with you and/or your partner at any time and can cover any topic, including:

Counselling – pre marriage preparation sessions

Our counsellors can work with couples who want to invest in their relationship or prepare for making a greater commitment to each other by getting married or entering into a civil partnership. This work can be tailored to the couple’s wishes and needs. Some want a structured series akin to a “marriage preparation course” and some may want to use the time to air expectations and concerns. Differences and similarities can be thought about or couples may wish to use the time to think about how they want to behave with each other and what behaviour may or may not be acceptable. By working in this way, it helps to support the couple’s own problem-solving skills.

Counselling – pre nuptial and post nuptial agreements

Our counsellors can provide assistance to couples who are embarking on a pre-nuptial or a post-nuptial agreement (whether or not with one of the lawyers at FLiP). Their sessions can work well alongside the legal process, particularly when entering into a pre-nuptial or a post-nuptial agreement might stir up difficult feelings.

Counselling – family breakdown

Counselling can help those struggling with family breakdown to come to terms with the changes that they may face, regaining their equilibrium and enabling them to make good long-term decisions.

Counselling – supporting you through divorce

Some couples simply need help to get through the divorce process and to work out how to cooperate better.

Counselling – exploring your options

Other couples may want to explore whether they wish to separate at all and for these couples we offer couple counselling to help them move forward.

Counselling – mediation or court preparation

We also offer counselling to individuals and couples about to embark on mediation or court proceedings to help prepare and support them through the process.

Counselling – for children

Children and young people are often directly affected by family breakdown and may need support of their own. Two of our counsellors can support children and young people on a one to one basis too. We can also recommend other specialists who may be able to help.

Next Steps →

Many clients find that our specialist emotional and practical support can be of benefit in helping them through the difficulties of divorce and separation. 

If you are contemplating counselling or pre marriage preparation sessions, we would suggest meeting for an initial consultation to talk about how we might work together and structure any sessions.
