Counselling and support for children in divorce

Children in divorce

Many of our clients tell us that they feel happier after they see a Relate counsellor and are better able to deal with their problems. Counselling is also available for children. It’s for any young person who’s having problems. Whether it’s depression and mental health concerns or issues with parents or people at school. Your child might be experiencing problems at school, arguments with their parents, anxious over  parents’ divorce or generally not feeling like themselves.

Counselling lets children talk about how they feel, enables them to separate from school and home life and can help them get back to enjoying life. They can expect to be helped by a supportive and non-judgmental counsellor either at a local Relate centre near their home, or a counsellor in school. A child can be referred by a teacher, social worker, or they can ask to see a counsellor themselves – what they say is confidential unless the counsellor is worried for their safety. In some cases, the counsellor can help them to concentrate better at school or college, or get on better with their friends and family.

This year FM Family Law is celebrating 5 years of providing relationship breakdown and divorce advice to our clients, bringing together over 40 years of combined professional experience in our lawyers.

To mark FM Family Law’s 5 year anniversary we have enabled some Relate counselling sessions for children dealing with their parents’ divorce.
