I set up The Co-Parent Way because I fundamentally believe that (when it’s safe to do so) children have a right to have positive access to both of their parents. I also believe that parents have a responsibility to parent with their ex in order to bring up their children, whatever they may feel about each other. The Co-Parent Way is built on the three pillars of truth, responsibility and courage, because it takes all of those things to be a successful co-parent.
I am a thought-leader in the co-parenting space and I speak at events and conferences around the country and abroad. My own experience of co-parenting coupled with my research and work means that I brings a personal reflection of what it means to be a co-parent, as well as a dynamic approach to enabling a room understand the systemic change needed in order to better protect the children of divorcing parents.
I’m a CTI Certified Co-Active Coach and I am accredited to the International Coach Federation. I am an associate member of Resolution and I sit on their Parenting After Parting Committee. I am trained in ORSC relationship systems coaching which applies both in the workplace and in our personal relationships. I sit on the collaborative law committee called “We Can Work it Out”. I also run a successful Executive coaching company called Rolling Stone Coaching.
Before becoming a coach, I ran communications and stakeholder engagement departments in the international civil service. I worked as an interface between governments and civil society. And I learned to hear the things that people weren’t saying in order to bring about change.
In 2009 after the break-up of my marriage, I had coaching with a CTI Co-Active Coach. It changed my life. The coaching I received enabled me to make strong, conscious decisions and helped me move away from feeling powerless. I became a better and more present mother, successfully co-parenting my child with my ex-husband.
When I trained to become a coach, I saw clearly how coaching can be applied to parents who are separating and struggling to bring up their children together. Co-parent coaching has its foundations in twelve years of research combined with daily practical lived experiences of co-parenting. It is an effective combination of pragmatic advice and certified coaching techniques that bring about transformational change in parents in order to keep their children safe during and after parental separation.
“Marcie has helped me enormously during a very challenging time in my life equipping me with strategies and techniques to deal effectively with incredibly difficult situations both personally with my ex-wife and professionally.”
“Marcie is one of those rare people that you come across in life…
Excellent at what she does; she is caring, original, insightful and not afraid to be genuine, human and personable while still maintaining her professionalism.
I have worked with Marcie for years, our paths have overlapped in the context of family mediation, co-parenting, therapy and executive coaching, and the common thread linking all these areas is BOTH me, and my clients enduring appreciation of her skill, value and energy.
People talk about their engagements with Marcie in terms of her power, her inspiration and the genuine excitement and commitment for what she does as well as who she works with.
I cannot recommend or endorse her in more positive and emphatic words.”
