Child Access

People have brought their problems to the Portland Centre Team for 18 years and so we have seen virtually everything.

Happy child with both parents

A breakdown of a marriage or relationship between couples is often a confusing and difficult time. Many parents find themselves in quite serious conflict over the amount of time that their children will spend with each of them.

Children value contact with both their parents even where that is small or imperfect.

At the Portland Centre we can help you work out reasonable contact which puts the needs of your child above your own.

We will help you remember that dividing parenting is not a weapon and that we must all love our children more than we hate our ex-partners.
