There are crucial things we should do (and should avoid doing) if we are to get our children through family breakdown in good shape. Other issues such as housing, finance, maintenance and so on become so much easier to resolve when there is an early focus on the needs of children. However, with so many things going on it is hardly surprising that too often the needs of children are managed less well than they could be.
We run Parenting After Parting workshops at our offices in Covent Garden to help you focus on the needs of your children. The workshops cover issues such as what to say to children about separation and divorce, how children can be affected when parents split up, how to help children to manage grief and loss constructively and how to establish a parenting relationship with your ex-partner. The workshops are run in groups of around half a dozen parents by our experienced therapists, trained in providing information in a helpful and accessible way.
We also offer Parenting After Parting workshops on a one to one basis if you prefer the privacy and discretion that this format can offer rather than the group based workshop. If you would like to hear more about the one to one workshop sessions, including availability and pricing, please contact our mediation coordinator, Wendy Hoare.
