Divorce and Separation

The NPCC offers counselling for families experiencing difficulties in adjusting to marital breakdown and separation.

Separation and divorce is a difficult time for many families. Grief and loss are often difficult to manage whilst adjusting to new living and financial arrangements.

We offer solution focused treatment in grief and loss, relationship counselling, adjustment, anxiety, depression, stress management and preparation for court.

“A successful relationship is not necessarily one where two people live together forever. A successful relationship during a divorce is one where each person can listen and help each other write the ‘story of your divorce’ in a way that helps both partners, and any children, to grow and feel safe during the family’s transition”.
