Useful Reading:

There are many books and many child psychologists who write about children's matters and they don't necessarily all agree so it's difficult to narrow the field. We often refer to one by a child psychologist who speaks regularly to mediators and is not just a theorist and an expert in her field with insight into attachment theory. This psychologist also experienced divorce as a young child so she has the t-shirt which we feel is useful. Her book is:

Family Breakdown (helping children hang on to both parents) by Penelope Leach.


This is one of the most stressful times of your life, needing a little support for yourself whilst you are probably trying to support others and keep life together is nothing to be ashamed of. We are forging links with local counselling services as we appreciate relationship breakdown is a difficult and stressful time. Some clients find it helpful to have some personal support whilst working through the process. If you would like to know more please do get in touch with us.
