What’s it all about?
Kids Come First is a separated parents support forum offering mindful, confidential group sessions. It’s a unique workshop of child-focused teaching material with specialist guidance on how to create a successful co-parenting partnership. Professional trainers with experience in child counselling & family mediation present the workshops, delivering customised support to parents during this difficult time of family breakdown.
How do we help?
Becoming a separated parent is a dramatic change in anyone’s life. Parents often find themselves struggling to maintain a positive, effective co-parenting relationship with their ex-partner and this can have a negative impact on their children. We provide the right support when parents need it most – helping you cope – so your children can too!
What options are available?
Parents either choose to attend a group workshop separately or to book a private workshop to attend together if this is appropriate & beneficial to your situation.
Where & when are the workshops held?
We hold our workshops in Hampton (TW12) a location accessible for Richmond, Kingston & Hounslow communities as well as Surrey & SW London boroughs. Group workshops are held on weekday evenings 6-8pm to accommodate working parents and a complete workshop consists of 2 x 2 hr sessions (4 hours). We offer daytime slots for private workshops & consultations, as well as Skype sessions for parents outside of the area.
What is the cost?
The fee to join a group workshop is £150 for 2 x 2hr sessions. If you are in financial difficulty or receiving benefits, we may be able to offer you a reduced fee on a group workshop (subject to available funding) so please ask! To enquire about our private workshops and fees please get in touch for further information.
What if I am in court proceedings?
We aim to help parents keep family matters out of the courts wherever possible. Because everyone’s situation is totally unique, we believe the workshop is relevant & valuable at any point in the process in understanding the needs of your children.
What if I live too far away to attend a workshop?
We offer Separation S.O.S. mentoring sessions to discuss current issues arising from your separation and help you deal with specific parenting concerns. We advise on managing conflict & also support you throughout any legal process you’re experiencing.
