    Untangling the Mental Load after Divorce and Separation - FLiP27

    Untangling the Mental Load after Divorce and Separation - FLiP27

    In this episode of the FLiP podcast, Senior Associate Hannah Greene and FLiP’s in-house Divorce Consultant and Individual & Relationship Therapist Jo Harrison discuss how couples can manage their mental load once they separate.
    In this wide-ranging discussion, Hannah and Jo look at how tasks within a relationship are often divided and the impact a separation may have on mental load as individuals seek to resume roles which they may have relinquished during the relationship. There is an acknowledgement that many separated parents wish to be seen as a “competent parent” as they move into the next chapter of their lives, but this can be hard and it can take some adjustment.
    Jo suggests that the key to managing the transition successfully is goodwill and fostering a good relationship through communication and an acknowledgement of the contribution their former partner has made and is making: “The better that you get on with your former partner, the easier it will be.”
    Hannah and Jo discuss the importance of building trust and sharing information with an acceptance that this can often take time to develop. Tread carefully and delicately, and think about your communication in terms of timing and tone. Appreciate and accept that your former partner may do things differently.
    At FLiP we have a team of Divorce Consultants and Individual & Relationship Therapists who have a wealth of experience in helping couples to improve their relationships, whether they are together or separating or separated.

    FLiP26 Domestic Abuse: Working with Victims and Perpetrators

    FLiP26 Domestic Abuse: Working with Victims and Perpetrators

    In this episode of the FLiP podcast, FLiP Director Helen Greenfield, leads a discussion with Chantal Hughes, Chief Executive at The Hampton Trust on the topic of domestic abuse and working with victims and perpetrators. Helen and Chantal cover a wide range of points such as:
    Who is referred to The Hampton Trust. The interventions offered by The Hampton Trust such as Project CARA. The language surrounding domestic abuse and coercive control. The stigma encompassing domestic abuse. The impacts of abuse on a family, in particular children who as defined by The Domestic Abuse Bill can also be victims of domestic abuse, with reference to the BBC documentary featuring Ian Wright which The Hampton Trust were involved with. Whether victims feel reassured by perpetrator support work and whether it can be said it is a safeguarding system for the victims. About the Speakers
    The Hampton Trust was founded in 1996 to deliver domestic violence perpetrator programmes within the criminal justice system. They have developed community based interventions for families experiencing domestic abuse alongside providing innovative criminal justice response.
    Chantal Hughes has been part of The Hampton Trust since 2006 where she joined as the Domestic Abuse Services Manager before progressing to Deputy Chief Executive.  She took a 4-month sabbatical in 2011 to work for a charity providing rehabilitation to street children in one of the largest slums in Africa and remains connected to the work in Kenya.
    Taking up the role of CEO in 2013, Chantal has led the expansion of a range of domestic abuse and criminal justice interventions.  She remains firmly committed to tackling the root cause of domestic abuse by holding perpetrators to account and ensuring the voice of victims and children are at the forefront of the work.
    Helen Greenfield advises on all matters relating to family breakdown, divorce and cohabitation. She has a particular interest in helping those who have been affected by domestic abuse. Domestic abuse can include anything from isolating a person from their friends and family, monitoring their time or taking control over aspects of their everyday life (such as where they can go, who they can see, what to wear, their finances or when they can sleep. It can also include threats to hurt, to kill or even physical assault).
    Helen recognises that the legal implications of domestic abuse are accompanied by a plethora of emotional and other issues, and she aims to ensure that clients are able to work through them with the right advice and support.

    FLiP 25 - Family Separation and Immigration Issues

    In this episode of the FLiP podcast, FLiP Associate Vanessa Sampaio, leads a discussion with Andrew Jones, Immigration Solicitor at Wesley Gryk Solicitors on family separation and possible immigration issues that can be encountered. Vanessa and Andrew cover a wide range of points such as:
    The challenges that arise from an immigration perspective for individuals in circumstances where their immigration status is dependent on their spouse and there is risk of such status being lost upon divorce. What impact children have on the immigration status of separating individuals. The legal position for unmarried couples who have children and one of the parents has a temporary visa and what can be done to regularise the parent’s status who does not have the right to remain in the country. Protective steps that family lawyers can take to safeguard their client’s immigration position. Vanessa advises on all aspects of family law including the division of finances on the breakdown of marriage/civil partnerships, and the preparation of pre and post nuptial agreements. She also advises in respect of matters under TOLATA 1996 and under Schedule 1 of the Children Act. Vanessa prioritises her clients’ objectives whilst providing them with pragmatic advice to assist them in achieving the best outcome for themselves and their children. Vanessa offers a considered approach to resolving her cases as constructively as possible, but nonetheless takes a strategic view when it comes to litigation. Vanessa is ranked as a Recommended Lawyer by Legal 500 2023.

    Divorce Diary: How Therapy Changed My Experience of Divorce FLiP 24

    Divorce Diary: How Therapy Changed My Experience of Divorce FLiP 24

    In this episode of the FLiP podcast, Marcia Drummond, Associate and Chartered Legal Executive Lawyer, leads a discussion with a former client about his divorce journey and the powerful impact therapy had on his experience.
    The questions in which Marcia asked her former client are listed below with the appropriate time stamp in case you would like to skip to a certain point of the discussion.
    At what stage did you consider it important to obtain legal advice rather than self-represent? (1:12) How did the end of your marriage impact on your mental health and how did you manage it? (1:47) When did you engage the services of a therapist? (2:30) How did you choose the therapist and what skillset was important to you? (4:13) What impact did therapy have on the way that you dealt with the divorce process? What would say are its benefits (and disadvantages) for other separating couples? (4:50) Do you consider there is an alignment between the legal advice you received and the support you received from your therapist? (7:39) Statistics show that men are likely to be more resistant to engage in therapy or counselling – do you have an opinion as to why that might be? (8:57) You’ve taken therapy to another level and have started a course in therapy – what was your motivation? (10:39) What would be your advice to anyone going through a divorce or separation? (12:20) At FLiP we have a team of Divorce Consultants and Individual & Relationship Therapists who have a wealth of experience in helping couples improve their relationships, whether they are together or separating or separated. Our team offer a place to reflect on relationship issues in a confidential and stigma-free way. To learn more, visit our dedicated website page linked below.
