How We Can Help

The workshop will provide you with the answers to most of your questions. It is a strong starting point in feeling confident towards exploring your co-parenting options further. We discuss how to talk to your kids about divorce, what your legal options are moving forward and what services are out there for you.


After the workshop, you should have some sense of calm and control. You will gain the confidence and knowledge to talk to your kids and be more comfortable in how to support each other as parents. You will still need to seek the supports required moving forward, but you will have a developed framework for this. You should feel more calm, confident and in control but may also still be somewhat nervous and unsure as you move forward.

Parenting Plans

 By creating a clear parenting plan, your family can avoid future stress by having a solid plan in place for where the children live, what their schedule is, and how information is passed between the parents, among other things. You may have heard of legal terms such as “custody” and “access” used to refer to these arrangements. A parenting plan does not use legal jargon but rather focuses on the roadmap for family life after a divorce or separation, made by the parents through mediation.


In order to work on a Parenting Plan with a professional, you and your partner (or ex-partner) need to be willing to work together in the best interests of your child(ren). The team at Peachey Counselling & Family Support helps you to negotiate the terms of the agreement and will make suggestions that serves your unique family best. Parenting Plans can be a great way to avoid the stress that comes with the court process.


 It is always recommended that you speak to a lawyer prior to finalizing any agreement. Get in touch with Stefanie to find out if creating a Parenting Plan would be helpful for your family.


Custody and Access Assessments

Section 30 of the Children’s Law Reform Act allows a judge to order a custody and access assessment in certain circumstances, or for parties to agree to have one completed. These circumstances vary but generally involve serious clinical concerns by the judge such as the mental health of the child, parental alienation, or a concern that one or both parents are unable to care appropriately for the child(ren). The purpose of an assessment is to garner the observations and opinions of a qualified professional who will use this information to make recommendations in a formal report regarding the post-separation custody and access of the child(ren). Please contact Stefanie to discuss this type of assessment in more detail.


Voice of the Child Reports

Voice of the Child Reports are one technique to ensure that children have the opportunity to be heard in custody proceedings. It may be ordered by a Judge when there is a contentious matter involving parenting or may be requested by either of the parties involved in the matter. Such a report, sometimes known as the Views of the Child Report, provides information about what the child thinks about his or her life and the issues in dispute between the parents to the court to assist in the decision making process. The Clinician's role is to ascertain the independent views and preferences of the child and to provide these views in a formal report to the court.


Psycho-Educational Session for Separating Parents

This 2-hour session is for parents who are planning to separate and would like to know how to support their children through this major life change. Learn how to tell your children about the changes in the family, how to support them through the transition and what to look for post-separation. While this is helpful to each individual parent, it is also helpful in setting the tone of the separation moving forward to ensure that your children's needs are of the utmost priority and so you can feel confident in supporting them throughout the process and afterwards.
