About Us

Dealing with divorce? Struggling with separation?

Kids Come First is a unique support forum & information workshop for separating parents, focusing on the needs of children during the family breakdown process.  

Whats it all about?

Kids Come First is a unique support forum for separated parents held within mindful, confidential group sessions.

It’s also a workshop packed full of child-focused information and specialist guidance for more effective co-parenting.

Professional trainers with extensive experience in child counseling & family mediation present each workshop, delivering customised support for parents during this difficult time of family breakdown.

How do we help?

Becoming a separated parent is a dramatic change in anyone’s life – it takes time to adjust and adapt. Parents often find themselves struggling to maintain a positive, effective co-parenting relationship with their ex-partner and this can have a negative impact on their children. By providing you with the right support & advice, at the time you need it most, we help you cope – so your children can too!

What are the options available?

Most parents choose to attend a group workshop on their own. However, we also offer private workshops to attend together if you both feel this is appropriate & more beneficial to your situation.

Where & when are the workshops held?

We currently hold workshops at venues in Hampton (TW12) & Richmond (TW9) both of which have excellent transport links for parents living in all the surrounding boroughs.

Sessions take place on Tuesday evenings from 6-8pm or Saturday mornings from 10am-12.  The complete workshop lasts for 4 hours (2 x 2 hour sessions) usually scheduled over consecutive weeks for continuity.

What is the cost?

The total workshop cost is £125 which is payable on booking. However, if you are in financial difficulty, subject to funding available, we may be able to offer you a FREE place on a workshop so please do ask us!

What if I am already in court proceedings?

Our aim is to help parents keep family matters out of the courts wherever possible. Although everyone’s situation is totally unique, as a separated parent you will find our support workshop and teaching material equally 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?

Our Separation S.O.S. mentoring sessions may be more convenient for you via Skype or telephone. We discuss current issues arising from your separation and help you deal with specific parenting issues. We offer guidance and advice on  managing the conflict and help support you through any legal processes you are experiencing.
