About Us

Are you dealing with divorce or separation? Trying to sort out your co-parenting issues? Concerned about how it affects your children? 

Getting the right support and guidance as early as possible can make a big difference to you and your kids!

Kids Come First® is a unique separated parent support forum & teaching workshop that focuses on the needs of your children. 


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.

Our 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 – it takes some time to adjust and adapt.  Many parents  find themselves struggling to maintain a positive co-parenting relationship with their ex-partner and this can have a negative impact on their children. By providing you with the right support at a time you need it most – we help you cope – so your children can 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 currently hold regular group workshops in Hampton (TW12) a location with good transport links for Richmond, Kingston, Hounslow and other Surrey & SW London boroughs.

Sessions take place on either Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday evenings from 6-8pm.  A complete workshop lasts for 4 hours (2 x 2 hour sessions) and is usually scheduled over consecutive weeks for continuity.

* 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.

Fees for private workshops vary according to the number of sessions booked. Please enquire 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 we also recognise that everyone’s family situation is totally unique. At any point in your separation, as a parent, you will find our support and teaching material both 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.
