The Divorce and Separation Hub is here to offer you a friendly and safe service to help guide and support you every step of the way through your separation, both emotionally and practically. You no longer have to face this journey alone.

Relationships are complex, so it goes without saying that, when they end, they can become even more complicated. When you’re going through a separation or divorce  it’s easy to feel like nothing more than a name on a court document. In truth, every person navigating a divorce will have different desires and vulnerabilities. 

“When I worked in family law, I felt frustrated by the one-size-fits-all approach I had to take with my clients. Today, I follow a holistic approach with my one-on-one clients, addressing every aspect of divorce and separation from the logistics to the emotional upheaval and how to take the fears out of your future.” Nikki Parkinson, Australia’s leading Divorce Coach and Strategist.

Whether you just want to talk through your paperwork or go deeper, we work with you in a flexible and goal-oriented process designed to support, motivate and guide your breakup.

In truth, every person will approach divorce differently and have different desires and vulnerabilities — but you don’t have to face them alone.
