Helping Parents To Put Their Children First

Separation and divorce can be a challenging and upsetting time for all involved. The relationship has ended between the adults, but their role as parents has not stopped.

It is important to make sure parents and children get the support they need.

Although there may be a lot going on and the mental and emotional demands of conflict, divorce or separation can leave people feeling overwhelmed, The Parenting Apart Programme will explore the unique challenges faced by families and will help them to identify practical strategies which will support them to navigate this specific phase in their life.

A unique programme that supports parents to communicate and form a respectful parent working relationship whilst always prioritising the emotional well-being of the child/ren. The programme reduces emotional trauma, reduces costs and lengthy Court proceedings to put in place a lasting parenting agreement that both parties agree to. This will detail all practical aspects of parenting.

The Parenting Apart Programme – How it works?

The Parenting Apart Programme (PAP) is facilitated by one of our Family Consultants offering you a supportive environment to communicate as parents, to form a respectful Parent Working Relationship, and to compile a Parent Working Agreement (PWA) which outlines all practical aspects of parenting whilst prioritising the emotional well-being of the child/ren.
