Finding a way forward for families

Private and Legal Aid Mediation

I provide a safe and supportive professional environment in which clients can work towards mutually acceptable solutions. I operate within ground rules based on mutual respect. I work with clients to create an atmosphere that takes the stress out of reaching agreements.

I have gained valuable insight into how the family court system operates. Before this I had a decade's experience working in Parliament on behalf of THE UNITED NATIONS CHILDRENS FUND (UNICEF) and the disability rights movement. During this time I worked with politicians from across the political spectrum, overcoming seemingly intractable differences in order to reach agreement on important pieces of legislation.

Having worked within family law I have seen first hand that the court process is not for everyone and that mediation has an important role to play in helping families move forward from conflict and breakdown to agreement and brighter futures.

I am a fully qualified ADRg and FMA family mediator and am regulated by the Family Mediators Council code of conduct. I am a member of The Family Mediation Association and the Alternative Dispute Resolutions Group (ADRg).

I have full professional and public insurance. I am also a FMC accredited mediator.
