Using over a decade of research to develop the Co-Parent Way, I offer a completely unique service coaching parents on how to manage their separation whilst keeping children as safe and stable as possible. A break up where a child remains whole and resourceful and playful is definitely possible. As a divorcee and a co-parent I know how utterly crucial it is to carefully construct a protective space around your children when you are going through a separation. Children find themselves dividing their time between two homes and two families. It can be confusing. At worst they are used as a bargaining piece or a sounding board or even just left to get on with it whilst the parents suffer through the separation. I will work with one or both parents throughout the whole process.
I also work with blended families, where there are new partners, additional children and grandparents joining the family. I help them navigate the tangle of lives to enable a more harmonious family.
Parenting apart is another form of co-parenting. For families that have one parent working away over long periods of time, it can be hard to know how to hold the parental space for the children. I work with families of journalists, aid workers, diplomats and more.
I work either face to face, on the phone or over Zoom/Skype.
