Cardiff Break Up Club - Surviving Christmas after separation

Christmas can be difficult post separation.

Family traditions may feel redundant now that you are no longer together, and memories of what used to be may cloud your mind. But remember, while you cannot control the loss of those traditions, you can control how you respond, and build new traditions moving forward.

Join family lawyers Katy Jordan and Abi Jones, and Divorce Coach Rebecca Spittles, as they share advice on how to approach Christmas with a positive mindset and embrace your new-look festive season.

There will be an opportunity for Q&A at the end.

About the Speakers

Rebecca Spittles Following an extremely acrimonious and complex separation and divorce, Rebecca felt there was a need for a professional service between legal representation and counselling. During her own divorce she was desperate for someone to guide her who wasn’t a friend or relative, someone who could navigate not just the emotions but the legal side of divorce too.

In 2016 Rebecca set up as a Divorce Coach having qualified in NLP in 2012, building links with the Bristol law community.

A passionate professional who has an excellent knowledge of family law, Rebecca supports a wide range of clients from a variety of backgrounds and locations across the world.

How to build a happy blended family with Nichole Farrow

An estimated one in three families in the UK are “blended”, meaning they have a combination of parents, new partners and children from different relationships.

And they face unique challenges. It takes time for a blended family to bond. The coming together of two households with their traditions, rules and boundaries can sometimes cause difficulties, particularly around holidays such as Christmas.

Join host and family lawyer Sarah Barr-Young from Stowe Family Law, and special guest Nichole Farrow, one of the UK's leading mindset coaches, who supports divorcing parents, as she offers her advice on how to build happy and positive blended families.

In this session, Nichole will cover:

  • The foundations / principles for successfully blending families:
  • Creating unity and a common goal
  • Establishing healthy open communication
  • Creating and respecting boundaries
  • Dealing with conflict
  • Providing emotional support
  • Forging new traditions and rituals
  • Adjusting to new roles

There will also be an opportunity for Q&A at the end of the session.
