Separation, Divorce and Family Law

Separation, Divorce and Family Law


We understand that separation is often a time of high emotional stress and conflict, making it difficult to discuss and resolve tough issues. As Larne has extensive knowledge of Family Law, Child development, and children’s well-being, she is able to support parents through the issues and challenges toward a workable resolution. Larne has a special insight into the importance of child-focused mediation as a result of her extensive experience supporting and counseling children after separation.

Some of the ways we can help

  1. Emotional Support: We provide a non-judgmental space for you to express your feelings, anxieties, and concerns, helping you process emotions tied to the separation.
  2. Parenting Guidance: We can provide strategies and recommendations on how to discuss the separation with your children, ensuring they understand it’s not their fault and addressing any anxieties they might have.
  3. Co-parenting Strategies: If both parents are involved in therapy, the psychologist can assist you in developing a collaborative parenting strategy post-separation, ensuring the children’s needs are prioritised.
  4. Adjustment Techniques: We can introduce coping strategies to help you and your children adjust to the new family structure.
  5. Conflict Resolution: We can assist in mediating any disputes between separating partners, focusing on effective communication and resolution.
  6. Individual Therapy: Address any personal issues that arise during this transition, such as self-esteem challenges, depression, or anxieties about the future.
  7. Child-focused Sessions: Some sessions may be dedicated to addressing the concerns and emotions of the children, helping them process the change.
