Therapy for Co-parenting

What is Co-parenting Therapy? 

Not to be confused with family therapy, co-parenting therapy is designed for parents who are separated, divorced or otherwise no longer living together but are committed to co-parenting their children amicably. The therapy focuses on improving communication and collaboration between the parents, and agreeing to a set of parenting strategies that will benefit the children's well-being. The therapist may work with both parents together or individually, and may involve the children in the process to understand the changes in the family dynamics. 

Why Co-parenting Therapy

Despite the couple's differences and disputes, there is a common goal on wanting to co-parent the children, and to ensure the children's well-being. Parenting can be stressful and challenging, and the added circumstances of a impeding divorce or separate living arrangements may give rise to unique challenges. The past unresolved conflicts may also hinder their ability to communicate effectively. 

What to expect from Co-parenting Therapy?

In sessions, the therapist will first identify the individual and relationship issues that may be causing underlying emotional difficulties or communication problems. The therapist will guide you to navigate differences in cultural backgrounds, and individual characteristics that may impact your parenting journey. By working on yourself, and working with the co-parent, we will explore the shared values for parenting, set boundaries and collaborate in parenting decision. A functional co-parenting relationship will promote a cohesive and nurturing environment for your children. With the guidance of our therapist, you can become effective co-parents and create a positive and healthy family dynamics for your children.
