Kids Come First® offers bespoke, specialist support workshops & child-focused training suitable for all parents at every stage of separation or divorce.
Kids Come First ® Solo or Joint Parent workshops offer you expert strategies to help you and your children adapt to the changing ‘shape’ of your family as you navigate your way through the emotional and complex separation or divorce process. Our teaching program delivers positive guidance on how to create collaborative co-parenting partnerships beyond your separation.
Our professional trainers are experienced in child counselling, family therapy & family mediation. This enables us to deliver unique, person-centred, customised support to parents during the difficult time of family breakdown.
How do our workshops help?
Becoming a separated parent is a dramatic change in anyone’s life. It takes some time to adjust and adapt to the many changes and parenting challenges that arise. So it’s not uncommon for parents to find themselves struggling to maintain positive communication and an effective co-parenting relationship with an ex-partner. Sadly, all too often this can have a profoundly negative impact on children who seek parental reassurance.
We aim to help you reduce the conflict and avoid the pitfalls of the family court system wherever possible. We achieve this by providing the right intervention as early as possible – supporting you as a parent when you need it most! Because when you are coping well – your children are too!
