She was born in Italy, grew up in France and moved to London at 18. After 22 years of happy corporate life, in 2017 Francesca jumped ship, swapping a successful career in the legal and corporate sector to explore freedom and adventure outside of office walls.

She can also offer work for grief, helping with managing emotions, boosting resilience and confidence to be forward-looking and create a new and better narrative.

As a creative optimist, she believes we all have potential to realise our visions and manifest more fulfilling lives by daring to be vulnerably curious, focusing on what truly matters and releasing unwanted attachments. She navigates clients with an open and intuitive approach, creating a safe and light-hearted space for insights, growth and playfulness, while cheering you on to take consistent steps (big and small) in the right direction.

Separated Parent Support & Training Workshops

What’s it all about?

Kids Come First provides bespoke workshops for separating parents. Our unique child-focused training program delivers specialist support for parents seeking to help their children through the separation process, as well as guidance on creating collaborative co-parenting partnerships. As professional adult trainers with family mediation, as well as adult & child counselling experience we assist parents at
all stages of their family transition process whatever the circumstances.

How does the Kids Come First program help parents?

Few parents take the decision to separate lightly. The end of a parenting relationship is a dramatic change in anyone’s life. Parents often struggle to maintain positive communication and an effective co-parenting relationship beyond their separation. This can have a profoundly negative impact on their children! We aim to help parents find collaborative solutions and keep matters out of the family courts by providing the right support and bespoke guidance when they need it most!

Our mission is to help parents cope well – so their children can too!

What options are available?

Parents can book a bespoke solo workshop to attend on their own or arrange joint co-parenting consultation provided they are both in agreement to attend.

How can I make an enquiry or referral?

Email kidscomefirstuk@mail.com or call 0778 9497275 for a confidential chat.

How can parents book a workshop?

Workshops are available via Zoom so location (whether UK or abroad) is not an issue. Sessions are available Mon-Sat as well as evenings to accommodate your schedule.

What are the costs?

Solo workshop fees start from £250 (2 hr session)
Joint workshop fees start from £190 per parent (2 hr session).

What if parents are in family court proceedings?

Booking a workshop helps each parent focus on their own positive solo parenting and enables them to demonstrate an understanding of their children’s needs. We issue certificates of attendance to parents who are in court proceedings.
