Co-operative Parenting

The way in which parents adapt to living apart and managing communication will impact their children’s experience of the family separation.  Many parents find this challenging, especially in the immediate aftermath of separation. 

At Wells Family Mediation, our goal is to support parents to reach decisions that will enable them to move on well and make a good transition from parents who live together to parents who live apart but who have a successful co-parenting relationship.

Our mediators and parenting experts can help you to develop a parenting plan that addresses your children’s emotional and practical requirements, ensuring they maintain healthy relationships with both parents. By focusing on open communication, collaboration, and long-term well-being, we support you to lay the groundwork for a healthy co-parenting relationship moving forward.

I honestly feel that we now have a good chance of proceeding in an amicable way that hopefully in time will become a friendship with the children at its core. I do not think we would have achieved this through solicitors, and feel huge gratitude for your patience and gentleness.

It’s so much better to go through this process together in a calm and neutral setting, rather than being defensive at home or seeing a solicitor individually. You’ve been a great adviser on a tricky topic and the meetings were really productive.

Throughout this whole horrible process we have both felt that the system is designed to leave us hating each other and to have had your support in helping us get to this point has meant a great deal, so thank you for your support of us both and for reflecting everything so well.

Thank you for all you have done to make a very sad and painful process somewhat less painful!

Thanks for all your help. We are talking a lot more and generally getting on much better, we even stood next to each other at rugby AND are going to parents’ evening together!

You did more in 4 hours than our lawyers had done in 1 year. For that I am very grateful.

I would like to thank you for the time you have spent in achieving in 4 hours, what we never achieved in 4 months. I think it is by far a much better process than solicitors and court.
