the practical skills for cooperative shared parenting
Understand the times when you need a lawyer, a mediator or when you can navigate this process without intervention. This section includes useful information and links on child support and property settlements.
Learn the difference between conflicted and cooperative shared parenting and how to communicate through hostility and elicit calmer, more rational responses from yourself and your coparent.
Do children need only stability or are they resilient and adaptive to change? This module sheds light on the children's experience of separation, what they say, what they may mean and what they need for optimum growth into the changing dynamic of their family structure.
Which model of coparenting works best for you and your family and is in the best interests of your children? With practical, non judgmental advice, this module offers you 3 different frameworks for coparenting and the pros and cons of each.
Unique to the Parenting After Separation Course is a model of self development in which you start the process of growing into your new role as a person, parent and co-parent. When embraced and with a support and guidance along the way, this can be an exciting time for you as you learn to parent together, while living apart.
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.
5 modules covering critical concepts that will assist you in navigating your shared parenting outcomes.
1. The Family Law System
2. Children In Focus
3. Parents In Focus
4. Practical Co-parenting
5. Personal Development
The Parenting After Separation Course is accepted by the Family Court of Australia.
The content is made up of written information with useful links, references, supplementary reading and video explanations. We also provide ongoing student support via email or phone (by appointment).
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.

I know first hand that parenting after separation isn't always easy.
During my own separation there was poignant moments when things could have gone horribly wrong. Thankfully, with the presence of mind to keep the children as the focus we managed to work through those issues and to navigate cooperative coparenting.
Coparenting isn't always easy, but it is always possible when both parents are willing to cooperate.
