As Mediators we often hear parents say:   "I'm worried about the kids".

Separation and divorce elicit a rollercoaster of strong emotions from, anger,  a sense of loss, profound grief to relief.    Children can react very differently to separation and divorce and their coping skills will depend on the the age of the child and the degree of conflict between the parents.  It is these experiences of childhood that will continue to influence in  later life.

As knowledge is power, we have compiled a list of trusted resources containing information and support services,to  help you and your child get through this challenging time.

There is a section focused on your needs as a parent and a section focused on the needs of your children.
