Experts come together to share divorce advice in Poole

25 Mar 2019

Free, hands-on support is being offered to Dorset families going through divorce or separation.

Law firm Trethowans is running a workshop at Poole’s Hotel Du Vin on Friday 5 April, where a team of experts including therapists, family consultants and life coaches will come together to give delegates the tools and advice they need to get on track.

42 per cent of all marriages in the UK end in divorce and Trethowans, having guided thousands of people through the process, understands only too well how it can be a difficult time for families.

Kimberley Davies, a partner in the family law team at Trethowans in Dorset, says: “There are so many changes and decisions to make during a separation that it can be hard to know which way to turn. There is a risk that you could follow a pathway that leads to increased conflict and heartache. If you have children that adds another layer of things to think about. The right advice and support can make all the difference.”

The New Beginnings workshop will consist of two sessions, with the first covering the important topic of how to support your children during a separation. The session will be led by child mediator and psychotherapist Ashley Palmer and family therapist Leigh Moriarty. Together, they will share practical tools for developing an effective co-parenting relationship and strategies to ensure children are supported.

In the second session Nikki Emerton, master practitioner in Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP) and Louise Lara Lauder, personal stylist, will focus on personal wellbeing. Their workshop will give delegates practical advice, tips and tools to help them deal with anxiety, depression, empowerment and self confidence.

Trethowans’ family lawyers will also be on hand to provide advice on the legal aspect of divorce and help delegates choose the right legal process for them and their families.

The New Beginnings workshop is free but spaces are expected to fill quickly. To reserve a space call Trethowans’ Poole office on 01202 673071 or email The workshop runs from 9am to 2pm with a complimentary lunch.
