How can we help you?

Conflict and Communication Coaching

Let’s face it, you’re struggling right now because you don’t know the most effective way to communicate with your ex-partner. If you’re getting stuck in the revolving door of conflict and you just can’t agree on simple things, discover some new ways to negotiate with the other significant adult in your children’s life with 1-1 coaching.

Family Mediation

If you’re struggling to make decisions about how your children will spend time with you and their other parent, family mediation might be able to assist. Even if you’ve been separated or divorced for ages or your current agreement just doesn’t work anymore, family mediation may be the bridge to new, workable agreements.

Workshops & Resources

Sometimes, families really struggle even once they have steadfast agreements in place. This is where our Family Court-approved Parenting Orders Program can give you extra assistance with your co-parenting. We also facilitate the world-renowned Circle of Security parenting program and developed a relationship-changing Step Mum Survival workshop.
