Post Separation Support Services

Supporting families and children experiencing separation.

Separation and divorce can be among the toughest experiences you will have in life. It is stressful and involves intense feelings and major changes which can be difficult to adjust to. Counselling support during this time can help you adjust to feelings of loss and make changes for the future.

Where children are involved new parenting arrangements need to be worked out. Family Dispute Resolution will assist you to make parenting agreements. Our post separation support services are here to help you develop new positive forms of communication that will support you to develop skills to cope with conflict and differences, and to co-parent your children into the future.
