Supervised Contact

When parents decide to go their separate ways, aside from manoeuvring their way through the  difficult and challenging emotions, there are usually some practical concerns that need to be addressed, including child contact arrangements.

This is where temporary Supervised Contact comes in.

This type of contact helps ensure that your child remains in regular contact with both parents as well as  making certain that your child’s physical and emotional wellbeing is tended too.

Another aspect of Supervised Contact that is often ignored, is that it provides you, the parent in this position, with time and space to engage freely with your child without fear of any allegations or charges being made towards you.

I am able to offer supervised contact both in homes and in the community.

Supervised Contact involves:

  • preparing, supervising and assessing child-focused contact sessions between the child or children and the other parent or significant other
  • write up a full report after each visit in a timely fashion
  • working with you to enhance your parenting skills if need be
  • providing you with a final full and thorough report that you may be able to use in court proceedings

Hourly rates range from £50ph – £85ph depending on time of day and if it’s a weekend or during school holidays.  The charges include report writing.
