Parenting Programs

For Separated Parents

Parenting is hard at the best of times without the added complexity of being separated feeling like you are doing it on your own!

You may have been ordered by the courts to do a parenting after separation program AND a parenting program.  

There is a difference!

Parenting after separation focuses on the emotional impacts of separation of how to separate how you feel about the breakup from your co-parenting responsibilities, be child focused and minimise conflict. 

Parenting programs focus on empowering both you as a parent and your children through managing emotions, behaviours and building resilience. 

Save $65 by doing BOTH programs as a bundle.

Empower Teens Impacted by Divorce

Gain confidence & courage

The greatest heartache for most parents during separation is the worry of the impact on their children.

You may think you’re shielding and protecting your children from the pain of divorce but kids don’t speak up as they don’t want to worry their parents, just as you as parents don’t want to worry them.

Many teens I talk to say they lost the concept of ‘home’ when their parents separated as it has now become ‘Mum’s house’ and ‘Dad’s house’.

They lose their sense of belonging, stability, and security, plunged into a life of uncertainty and chaos.

Teenagers are already going through major change in their life without the added stress and anxiety of coping with their parents divorce!

The 'Empowering Teens impacted by Divorce' program helps teens through the emotional turmoil, deal with change, improve communication to navigate stressful conversations & minimise conflict and so much more .....

Accelerated Recovery Program

Haven't you suffered enough?

It's like being stuck in a time warp, unable to go back to your past life but unable to let go and move on to create a happy future!

You may feel like you are on autopilot, void of emotion being numb or just going through the motions of daily life with no spark or excitement, just existing!

We can either be too scared to let anyone get close to us in fear of being hurt again or feel safe in our current state of existence avoiding any major changes that could have our life come crashing down around us again.

Wouldn't it be great if you could break the shackles of your old life and create your best life yet ?

Our Accelerated Recovery program will change your life in weeks!

Don't just survive, thrive!


Pet Mediation

Shared Pet Parenting

Separation or Divorce is fraught with high emotions, conflict, stress and anxiety as you deal with the emotional grief of the breakup, impact on the children, financial insecurity and future uncertainty……..and to top it off, who gets the dog!

The legal system considers pets as property……. so if you both can’t come to an agreement on who gets the dog, the court will decide based on factors such as who paid for it and who has the biggest yard!

To us, our dog is part of the family. We all know how anxious we can become leaving them when we go on holidays, or worry about them when they are ill staying at the vets, not to mention if they run away in a storm frightened and scared.

Pet mediation can help you reach a workable solution so the whole family maintains the bond and relationship with the pets.

Grab a copy of the pet parenting plan to setup ongoing pet sharing!

Founder of The Divorce Centre, Certified Divorce Coach, Accredited Mediator & Author of bestseller,The Divorce Tango

My name is Cheryl Duffy and I am the founder of The Divorce Centre. 

After nineteen years of marriage, my world was turned upside down. Every facet of my life was impacted and I felt like I was in a fog, not knowing what was ahead for me and my children.

I plummeted into depression and spent 6 years in post-divorce purgatory making 5 big mistakes delaying my recovery.

1. Self Sabotage

2. Harbouring Resentment

3. Half glass full attitude

4. Scared of getting hurt again

5. Staying in my old life

I finally sought the help I needed and decided to follow my passion to help others accelerate their recovery so they didn't waste years of their life too.
