Blending New Families

I provide help for families in Lewes and Brighton who have issues relating re-formed and step families

My step children cause problems between me and partner

Blending together a new family is not an easy task. The children involved are sometimes moving between 2 family systems. All step families are together through some sort of loss or desired change, so this can take a bit of time to work through. It's really important to do this as a couple before it becomes a crisis.

My children do not like my step children 

It is important to remember that children are going through a period of adjustment and this can be hard,  and can be complicated by divided loyalties, the age and gender of the children/young people and their stage of life.

My husband treats the children differently

Sometimes children spend part of a week with a parent and there are all sorts of feelings and challenges as a result. Guilt or missing children can play a part in this. Hearing each others' feelings and working together is key to a positive outcome.

If you experience any challenges due to the re-forming of your family and would like to see if I can help you, please fill in the form below or email or do call me on 07801 909 970

My anxiety was crippling the family, it’s catching and infectious and effecting everyone. I’m so much better and the children are much better too
