A Practical Guide to Co-Parenting with a Narcissist
If you’re trying to co-parent with a Narcissist, then I know just how stressed out you are right now: trying to make it work is simply NOT working and the Narcissistic Ex (NEX) is making your life absolute hell.
Nothing you do is good enough. They are constantly changing plans, not sticking to their side of the bargain and continuing to turn your world upside down.
Maybe they are:
- Making promises to your child that they don’t keep
- Trying to turn your child against you
- Issuing threats & abusive texts/emails/voicemails
- Using emotional blackmail
- Playing favourites / scapegoating your children
- Manipulating you and your child
- Using the full array of narcissistic abuse tactics
- Demeaning and belittling you as a parent
- Undermining you at every turn
- Generally making your life as difficult and stressful as possible
- Sadly, this is the reality of trying to ‘Co-parent’ with a narcissist. And it’s why you need something completely different to help you navigate the extremely difficult challenges you’re facing. And I have just the thing to help you! I've talked to hundreds of beleagured parents, researched, read, watched countless videos, studied and I've put together the best possible route to rapid co-parenting success for you.
You do NOT have to go on being the puppet who is constantly dancing to the NEX’s tune. There are tried and tested strategies that YOU can adopt to shift the balance of power in your favour!
This online course is going to help you to not only navigate those muddy waters, but to alter the trajectory altogether. It’s going to give you a ton of practical tips, actions and mindset shifts that are going to put you firmly in control.
No longer will you be at the mercy of your NEX because I’m going to share with you some incredibly powerful tactics that you can implement quickly – tactics that will work as soon as you apply them.
What I’m covering in this series of 14 Videos will give you a new perspective on how you can take control back from the NEX and start Parallel Parenting with confidence whilst saving your sanity and building a better relationship with your kids.
However please note: This course will not give you legal advice and you are advised to seek guidance from an attorney/lawyer who is expereinced in high-conflict divorce and parental alieanation.

What my clients are saying about this course:
I think it's amazing!
‘I think it’s amazing! You have so much covered. The one line of communication is extremely important. I really like the acceptance and detachment part. You also go into gray rocking and not sharing anything personal. It was a nice reminder that I’m doing a lot of things right. The manipulation tactics with the kids never end. I’m really impressed with how well you have everything covered. Wish I had had this 3-4 years ago. This will help a lot of people!
Michael Sunset, Author: A Mind is a Terrible Thing to Manipulate
I see all the mistakes I've been making now.
'Maria your course has shown me very clearly how I kept making the same mistakes over and over again and I was losing my mind because of my ex-wife's ridiculous behaviour. It's incredible how making some simple changes in our arrangment - particularly the one line of communication and thinking about whether I even needed to respond - were eye-opening to me. Before your course I dreaded looking at my phone because I knew there would be dozens of messages filled with accusations, blaming and demands, and I would tie myself in knots trying to figure out how to respond. What a simple gift it was to realise I didn't even have to! I can't thank you enough for putting this course togethehr. It is so desperately needed!'
Robert J, Texas.
You said it was a 'game changer' and it really is.
'We have 4 children together with age range 6 to 15. Your explanation of Family Dynamics was really helpful to me. I could very clearly identify which roles my ex-husband has assigned to our children. I wish I had known about this sooner, but at least now I can make some sense of it and try to even the playing field for all of my kids. I also loved the section on detachment. Thank you!"
