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.
Our psychologists can assist you with:
- Co-parenting strategies including parental communication
- Supporting children emotionally through family separation
- Blended families and step-parenting
- Court Ordered Therapy (see below)
- Independent Family Assessments (Ch. 15 Reports - see below)
COURT ORDERED THERAPY
A Court may direct a family to engage the services of a therapist during legal proceedings. This process may be confidential, so as to not disrupt the therapeutic relationship between client and therapist, OR the Court may request that the therapy is reportable and call on the therapist 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.
