My approach to co-parenting counselling starts with the parents. I believe children do best when parents (together or not) can communicate effectively, provide safety & security and an environment where they can develop and grow into who they are meant to be. I believe parents need to be stronger, wiser, kinder and their children’s go-to person(s). This framework means I start with the parents and only invite children in if and when it is developmentally appropriate and in the child’s best interest.

This might be for you, if…

  • you want to improve your parenting with your co-parent (you can be together or not) to find more peace and harmony in your family.
  • your children are being negatively impacted due to conflict with your co-parent (the more conflict, the more your children are being negatively impacted)
  • you want to have better communication and a more positive relationship with your co-parent
  • you want a neutral third party to facilitate a conversation between you and your co-parent
  • you want to reduce your involvement with the adversarial and costly court system
  • you think your child needs counselling to fix their problems, I believe parents are children’s best answer and I can help you to parent differently
  • you are a step-parent and you and your partner need some tools and strategies to work together to parent (step-parenting is very different than parenting your own children, come in and learn how)

What you can gain from Co-Parenting Counselling:

  • a parenting framework to reduce conflict and increase everyone’s well-being
  • happier children who feel safe & secure, which reduces behaviours
  • knowledge, insight & strategies that support you in your parenting journey
  • more fulfilling family life
  • more acceptance and self-compassion for yourself and others in your life

 What Co-Parenting Counselling is not:

  • it is not mediation, although you can work on parenting agreements
  • it is not legally binding, although your lawyer(s) or a judge may recommend it to improve your co-parenting relationship
  • it is not about parenting capacity or decisions about custody
  • it is not about evidence for court
