Children And Separation

Separation or divorce is often emotionally exhausting, sometimes traumatic  and can be very confusing for both the adults and children involved. The separation process can cause a tumult of emotions, reactions and behaviour  including pain and anger, sadness, guilt, rejection, vengeance and hostility which if not managed effectively and responsibly will impact negatively on the children.

With their own emotions to deal with, children get caught in the middle with a "double whammy" of hurt and unhappiness and commonly develop a parent loyalty conflict as well as self-blame. With nowhere to turn, they will feel lost and abandoned. Separation counselling provides strategies for separating couples to make sure there children don't bare the brunt of the separation. With  our professional counselling service, even (and especially) in a bad separation, the separating couple can make sure their children will be ok.
