Family mediation / FDR

Need a safe, structured, solution-focussed process to discuss difficult issues?


Family Mediation can help all families find constructive solutions to their issues.


All families: partners, parents, siblings, parents and children, extended and blended families and family businesses. All issues: whether to separate, caring for children after separation, how to divide our assets if we separate, elderly parent care, wills, business succession, surrogacy arrangements.


Mediation is a solution-focussed process that is safe, supportive, fair, tailor-made, confidential and affordable.


It helps you your family members listen to each other, clarify options and jointly and respectfully make decisions.


You are the experts in your lives. You get to develop and choose the outcomes that might meet all your needs.


In family mediation I can help you:


  • communicate calmly
  • express your needs and goals
  • develop constructive solutions
  • make appropriate choices
  • build a child-focused co-parenting partnership
  • develop a parenting plan
  • stay out of court
  • preserve important long term relationships.

Mediation Process


My family mediation process for separated couples usually looks like this. My process has an important second step where I help you prepare for the mediation, reality test your options and help you consider what the other person might be wanting or your children needing. In my experience this makes a successful mediation much more likely.


Other family mediations are similar. We may need fewer or more pre-mediation sessions depending on how complex your family issues are. We adapt the process to suit your needs.


I’d love to help your family. Let’s talk about how.
