SEPARATION & DIVORCE THERAPY

In-clinic sessions & ONLINE

A common misconception is that divorce and separation can only have negative outcomes. In actual fact, it’s a mutual acceptance that your marriage is no longer making you both happy, or fulfilling you both in the way you want it to.

Divorce can be seen as an evolution of the family system, not the end of a family. It isn’t in itself harmful to your children, although a bad divorce may be. Your friendship, your life, your mutual shared experiences do not need to be fractured. It can, and should be seen as a shared problem to navigate and overcome.

Whether at the dining room table, by way of Collaborative Practice, Mediation or a more High Conflict Divorce [link to lower down on the page?], the MindnLife team offers help and advice to all members of the family unit to ensure a smoother process and prepare you and your children for life after the marriage has ended.

CHILDREN & ADOLESCENTS

– Emotional, behavioural and developmental support throughout the process of separation and beyond

– Evidence-based parenting plans that suit the unique needs of your child

COUPLES & FAMILIES

– Guidance through changes and next stages for the family unit

– Parenting Coordination and Cooperative planning

COLLABORATIVE PRACTICE

Collaborative Practice is a new solution that enables disputes to be resolved respectfully, out of court, under the guidance of a team of lawyers and professionals relevant to various areas of your life. The new arrangements are decided on by the couple themselves, with lawyers working together to draw up a mutually acceptable settlement. In other words, no one party ‘wins’. Remember, the end of a marriage doesn’t always spell the end of a relationship. This is a process that suits couples who wish to part ways amicably and remain friends afterwards. MindNLife offers support and advice to protect the mental wellbeing of the couple and their children and adolescents. This may be in relation to:

– How best to communicate ‘respectfully’ with a more balanced, neutral approach

– Unbiased assessment of most suitable arrangements for both the couple and their children

– Developing a suitable parenting plan:

o Parental and childcare advice and coordination

o Understanding and deciding between Collaborative Parenting, Co-Parenting and Parallel Parenting

Common Questions

At Mindnlife, our individualised sessions will allow you to share your concerns with a trained professional. Together you will work towards a solution that works for you and your family. Get in touch or take a look at the services we offer and our therapists’ credentials to find out if we can help.

This really depends on the service or treatment. Our therapy sessions usually last for 50 minutes, but may be left open-ended depending on the situation. Group sessions may also differ. We aim to meet face-to-face or online at least once a week for as many weeks as necessary – but again, this may vary. Your therapist will agree on timings that best suit you before you begin any treatment program. Of course, for those in need of more urgent attention, our therapists will make themselves available as soon as humanly possible. Contact us now to schedule a session.

Yes we do – but not all insurers cover every type of mental health care. Please check with your insurance provider if our care falls within your health insurance plan.

Absolutely. We abide by the strictest codes of ethics. Your trust and privacy is at the very core of any therapy. Without it our sessions would be ineffective. That being said, there are some exceptions to this golden rule, particularly if it is a question of safety and there is a serious risk of harming yourself or someone else.

You can call, email, or drop us a line here. We’ll do our best to get back to you within 24 hours.

This will depend on your therapist, the service and the length of your session. For rates or a quotation please contact us directly.

We will do our best to match you with the therapist who is trained and the right fit for you and your individual needs. Ultimately the right therapist is whoever you feel most comfortable talking to.

Usually when we’ve reached the goals we set out to achieve, your therapist will assess whether it is a good time for your sessions to come to an end. A big part of what your therapist will do during sessions is to try to arm you with the right tools and methods to maintain your mental health on your own. The aim is to ensure you gain better clarity and direction. You should leave feeling confident enough to make your own decisions and trust your own choices.

If you or someone you know feels unsafe, overwhelmed and like they could be in a crisis, call nearest hospital or 999 for immediate support.
