Kids Come First® is a support forum for separated parents that offers mindful, confidential group and private workshops.
Our child-focused teaching program offers specialist guidance on how to create a collaborative, effective and more successful co-parenting partnership beyond your separation.
Professional trainers with experience in child counselling and family mediation present our workshops, delivering person-centred, customised support to parents during the difficult process of family breakdown.
How do we help?
Becoming a separated parent is a dramatic change in anyone’s life and it takes some time to adjust and adapt to the changes. So it’s not uncommon for many parents to find themselves struggling to maintain a healthy, positive co-parenting relationship with their ex-partner. Sadly, this can have a negative impact on children. Our mission is to provide parents with the right support at a time they need it most. It’s our belief that by helping you cope – we help your children too!

What options are available?
Parents can choose to attend a group workshop separately OR book a private workshop to attend together if you both feel this is more appropriate & suitable to your situation.
Where & when are the workshops held?
We hold our workshops in Hampton (TW12) & Clapham (SW4) at locations easily accessible for West & SW London boroughs as well as Surrey communities.
Group workshops are held on Weekday evenings or Saturday mornings to accommodate working parents. We also offer daytime slots for private workshops & consultations, as well as Skype sessions for parents further afield.
* We have other training venues available in various boroughs so send us an enquiry about attending a workshop near you.
What is the cost?
The fee to join a group workshop is £150 for 2 x 2hr sessions.
To book a private workshop and enquire about session fees, please get in touch for further information.
All fees are payable at time of booking or a minimum of 14 days in advance.
If you are a parent experiencing financial difficulty and/or in receipt of benefits, we may be able to offer you a FREE place on a workshop (subject to available funding) so please ask us!
What if I am already in Family Court proceedings?
We aim to help parents keep matters out of the courts wherever possible but also recognise that everyone’s situation is unique. At any point in your separation, we aim to encourage you to focus on being the most positive parent you can be and believe you will find our support and teaching material extremely relevant and valuable in gaining new insights and a deeper understanding of the needs of your children.
What if I live too far away to attend a workshop?
We offer personalised Skype meetings based around the workshop content.
Otherwise you might find our personal Separation S.O.S. mentoring sessions more suited to you via Skype or telephone. We discuss current issues arising from your separation and advise on dealing with specific parenting issues, managing the conflict and can help support you through any legal processes you are experiencing.
