- Relationship Advice
We have been working with parents in conflict for more than 65 years. We do not take sides in disputes and we are not part of any court assessment process. Our aim is to help parents reduce family conflict so that you and your children can thrive, now and in the future.
Who can attend the Parents in Dispute service?
Parents can come to the Parents in Dispute Service on their own or with their ex-partner. We work with a wide range of parents from a variety of backgrounds and circumstances. We try wherever possible to work with both parents together, but we recognise that this can take time.
How does it work?
After an initial appointment, we offer six sessions with an option of continuing the work for a maximum of 12 sessions if you wish. Some of these appointments may be weekly, but at other times after discussion with your therapist, the sessions may be spaced further apart.
Some parents will also be able to join a group for six weeks and work with other parents in the same situation. We know from previous experience that parents can find this very helpful.
You will be seen by couple psychotherapists or relationship counsellors who have specialist skill and training in working with complicated co-parenting issues.
Where do the sessions take place?
Sessions take place in our centres in central London. We have one centre in the West End on Warren Street (near Warren Street tube Station) and one centre in the City on New Street (opposite Liverpool Street Station). Please click here for a map
