The support available to you includes:
Counselling – for you and your family members
Counselling can cover any topic and it can take place at any time. Our counsellors Jo Harrison, Ruth Smallacombe and Dominic Raeside have a wealth of expertise in helping families to cope with the emotional questions raised by family breakdown.
Parenting After Parting
Our Parenting After Parting courses focus on helping your children through divorce and separation. They cover what to say to children about separation, 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 courses are held at our offices in Central London although during lockdown they are held using our virtual platform. For further information, take a look at our dedicated Parenting After Parting page here.
Family Consultancy Services
Family consultancy services are offered by Jo Harrison, Ruth Smallacombe and Dominic Raeside, each of whom has a background in psychotherapy and counselling. They offer consultancy sessions on an individual, couple or family basis and can liaise between you and your legal advisers, if required. As family consultants they cover the child related, emotional and psychological aspects of divorce and separation including:
- How to tell the children about the end of the relationship in a positive and helpful way
- How to stage the separation itself
- How to find better ways of communicating, in particular over the crucial early stages whilst habits are formed
- Setting up structures and arrangements that are likely to work well for the children
- Managing any particular crisis well (eg. new adult relationships) that may arise
Our family consultants can also prepare you for what to expect if you are about to embark on mediation or if you are due to appear before the family court. The privacy and discretion of these sessions can be ideal for exploring sensitive and delicate family matters.
Divorce Diaries Website
Our Divorce Diaries website captures the real life experiences of a number of our former clients who have been through divorce and separation. Their divorce diary stories can be hugely supportive for others going through family breakdown.

Our Thought Leadership talks cover a range of issues affecting families today. They are free of charge for our clients.
We have some of the very best London divorce lawyers and family mediators along with specialist arbitrators, family consultants and counsellors. There’s no one better to handle your case.
