Do you have clients facing the following ?
I am a qualified Independent Social worker, he also has experience working in Child and Adolescent Mental Health (CAMHS) I am experienced in working within the legal and child protection framework.
I adopt a supportive approach, combining coaching and counselling, aimed at helping parents understand their emotionl response to the circumstances and how ths impacts on others. From this position the focus moves to empowering and challenging them to address any identified issues that are impacting on others, particulalry children and the other parent. The overall aim is toward positive shared parenting.
In the case of Supervised contact this can be in the community or any venue agreed by both parents. Securing engagement and co-operation can be challenging in the area of Supervised contact and moving beyond that. As such a significant element of my input is focused on negotiating/mediating with parents to address any barriers to progress. This can include work with the parent against whom allegations have been made, which may be about parenting or managing anger. It may slao include woirk with the other parent, such as suport with worries about going forward, helping them be more positive withthe children about contact going forward and for both avoiding denegrating the other parent.
I provide a comprehensive professional service that is adaptable and flexible, carrying out assessments and doing direct work with parents/step parents/partners. My combination of skills and experience places me in a position to be able to support and challenge parents in respect of areas of difficulty, concerns and barriers to going forward, with the overall aim of promoting the interest of children. Trained to deliver the respected Webster Stratton parenting course, I have many years experience in parental guidance in complex cases involving a range of issues that impact on children and families.The potential negative effect on children from divorce and separation is well documented.
