Another service that parents find helpful is the 'Relate for Parents' services offered by Relate Worcester – this service helps parents to understand the effects that their divorce or separation is likely to have upon their children. When parents make plans for future parenting arrangements, they can take account of the understanding that their ‘Relate for Parents’ counsellor has given them. Leaflets describing this service are available from The Worcester Family Law Practice.
Following the introduction of Collaborative Family Law to the United Kingdom, a number of Counsellors and Therapists have trained as Divorce Coaches. Although divorce coaching has been introduced as an integral part of the Collaborative process, Divorce Coaches are able to help all those going through divorce or separation. The role of a Divorce Coach is to help the family member to understand how the divorce process will affect them and to help equip them to deal with the difficulties that can arise. There are trained Divorce Coaches practising in Worcestershire to whom we are able to refer clients.
