SEPARATED FAMILIES 

Separated Families Rowe & Associates

The separation of a family can be one of the hardest times of a parent or child's life and comes with its own unique set of circumstances. 

Rowe & Associates is one of the few child psychology practices in Sydney that provides clinicians with specific training, expertise and experience in working with separated parents and families, particularly those who are currently in the Family Court. 

Therapy

INDIVIDUAL, CHILD & FAMILY THERAPY 

A Court may direct a family to engage the services of a psychologist during legal proceedings. This process may be confidential, so as to not disrupt the therapeutic relationship between client and psychologist, OR the Court may request that the therapy is reportable and call on the psychologist to provide an opinion and make recommendations. 

 

Rowe & Associates offers clinicians who understand the pressures and unique context of Family Law. We can provide therapeutic and emotional support for children, sessions around effective co-parenting, individual adult therapy and effective family therapy in what is often a conflict fuelled environment. 

 

If you are currently in the midst of Family Court proceedings, contact our clinic to see how our therapists may be of assistance.

Parenting Coordination

PARENTING COORDINATION 

With extensive experience in working with separated families, many of them in high conflict, our psychologists are well positioned as Parenting Coordinators. 

Our Parenting Coordinators are fully registered psychologists with additional training in high conflict separated families, some of them being also Family Dispute Resolution Practitioners (FDRP). 

Parenting Coordination is a child-focused process that assists parents in implementing Court Orders or a Parenting Plan. A Parenting Coordinator is your co-parenting coach, assisting parents to improve their communication, work through daily practical issues that arise in separated households, reduce the likelihood of future litigation, and reduce overall conflict. 

All Parenting Coordination meetings are 1.5 hours in duration and held over Telehealth. Parenting Coordination is typically a service provided by a Court Order and commences with an individual parent intake appointment, followed by regular joint Zoom sessions.
