A way forward
A couple may have decided to go their separate ways, yet still want to continue to co-parent. It is in these situations that keeping the child’s best interests at heart can provide the common ground for working out constructive strategies.
Filming your interactions with your partner/ ex-partner and reflecting on the best micro-moments will provide the focus for helpful conversations.
You will be helped to identify verbal or non-verbal patterns of communication and identify ‘triggers’ which often are the causes for repeated pain and hurt.
The aim is to enable you and your partner/ex-partner to effectively communicate, to express your feelings and opinions and to find mutual ways of moving forward.
You will be looking at positive touch points in your interactions. This allows you to create more of an equilibrium in your relationship. Then you can create an atmosphere which will allow you to negotiate how you parent, either together or separately, at agreed times and spaces.
Parents have found these sessions a helpful springboard to identify strengths in their relationship and start thinking about co-parenting their children in a constructive way.
