Podcast: Interview with Nicola Withycombe – Kids Come First

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!

How do I make an enquiry?

Email to kidscomefirstuk@mail.com or info@kidscomefirstuk.co.uk or call  0778 9497275 to discuss how we can help you.

What options are available?

You can book your own solo session or a joint co-parenting workshop to attend together if  you both agree this is appropriate to your situation.

Where & when are the workshops held?

Our workshops are usually available face-to-face at venues in London, Middlesex, Surrey & Wiltshire but we are currently working remotely via Zoom or Skype which means we can meet with you wherever you’re located!

We offer daytime, evening & Saturday sessions to accommodate your schedule.

What are the workshop fees?

Our charges vary depending on location as follows:

Solo private workshops from £250 (2 hours).

Joint private workshops from £190 per parent per session (2 hours) 

NOTE: All fees are payable in advance to secure your booking.

If you are a parent in receipt of benefits or experiencing financial difficulty, we may be able to offer you a subsidised or reduced fee. However, this is usually dependant of any funding or sponsorship we may receive.

What if I’m already in Family Court proceedings?

Every parent’s situation is unique. Booking a parenting program will help you focus on positive, solo parenting and enable you to demonstrate a deeper understanding of your children’s needs.  

You will be issued with our certificate  on completion of the course so you can notify the Court of your attendance.

What if I live too far away to attend a workshop?

We also offer sessions via Zoom based around the Kids Come First workshop content and you can follow our training program online.

You might find our personal Separation S.O.S. mentoring sessions more suited to your situation. We also offer 1 hour appointments via Zoom to 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.
