Nina Farr – Leadership Coach & Mentor | TEDx Speaker | Author
Becoming a single parent can feel like one of life’s toughest challenges, particularly after a difficult separation or divorce. Especially if you’re also trying to stay on top of a successful career or business.
Let's face it - family breakdown is never fun. As our families change and significant relationships either end or change, we are forced to relinquish dreams, hopes, identities we expected to be living. When the changes are unwelcome, sudden or accompanied by trauma or loss, life can start to feel joyless, exhausting and lonely.
Far from being uncommon today, a quarter of families in the UK today are headed by a single parent. If you've found this website because it's a change you are navigating yourself or you want to support a loved one making the change, you are in good company. Resilient and courageous parents like you have made it through, we believe you can too.
