This Course Will Help You To...

  • 1
    Australian family law expressly states that children have a right to a relationship with both parents. For some families this can be a difficult transition period. It is in your children's best interest that you facilitate a meaningful and substantial relationship with both their parents. 
  • 2
    The decisions you make now can have a life long impact on your children. It is vital to the children's wellbeing that you keep their needs as the priority in decision making. They love both of you and will adjust better when they live in homes which are free from conflict and adversity. 
  • 3
    The Family Law process is by its very nature adversarial. Pitting parent against parent it serves no one more than your Lawyer and no one less than your children.

About Your Trainer

Jasmin Newman

I am an accredited mediator and experienced relationships coach who is passionate about creating a new paradigm around how we navigate parenting after separation.

I have been a voice for shared parenting outcomes including being part of the foundation team of the Family Law Reform Coalition; a volunteer and staff member of the Parents Beyond Breakup charity and I previously ran my own Relationship Coaching business in which I helped parents navigate life after separation. 

I believe wholeheartedly that children deserve a loving relationship with both their parents and that amicable separations are not always easy, but they are always possible.

Drawing on my coaching skills (cognitive and behavioural neuroscience), mediation skills (accredited NMAS) and the experiences of many who have traveled this path before you, I aim to help make this transition period easier for all.

What Students Are Saying...


This course is essential reading. I wish I'd had it at the start but even half way through my family law case this is helping me get a better handle on the process and what I need to be doing. 

  • HR, father


When I first separated I desperately wanted a guide book on what to expect, what to do, and where to go for help. Finally, it's here. This course is very helpful and well thought out. The personal development section nailed it for me. 

GS, mother


"This is fantastic. It's going to save you. Jasmin has done a great job of explaining everything you need to know, especially about communication. It's different to anything else out there because she's actually trying to help YOU. The system is smooth and easy to learn. I'm going to encourage my co-parent to do this course as well. 

JD, father


“This course has changed my understanding of being child-focused. I get it now and things will be better going forward. It's essential for all parents.”
