Divorce or Separation
Evolving Minds Counselling: Creating Space to Heal

Evolving Minds Counselling boasts extensive experience in working with families navigating separation and understanding the challenges that can arise due to grief and loss from relationship breakdowns.

At Evolving Minds Counselling, we also provide marriage and relationship counselling. We believe that divorce or separation doesn't have to be marked by conflict and counselling can provide a space for both parties to heal.

Research indicates following separation and divorce, children are twice as likely to encounter emotional, social, behavioral, and academic difficulties. The Family Court of Australia underscores the detrimental impact on children when they are embroiled in their parents' disputes, emphasising increased feelings of anger, stress, depression, anxiety, and strained parent-child relationships. It's common for children to feel isolated, bewildered, guilty, saddened, enraged, and undervalued when placed in the midst of parental conflicts.

Evolving Minds Counselling, advocates for the active involvement of both parents in their child's well-being. During the initial appointment, we prioritise gathering insights on how counselling can best support the child or children, particularly in cases of contentious parental dynamics. Our approach places paramount importance on the child's best interests, aiming to alleviate emotional distress through mental health counseling.

We offer a diverse range of psychological therapies, including play therapy, art therapy, and Theraplay-informed practices, designed to assist children in processing challenging emotions.
