Safe | Resolution Focussed Without Court | Self-determining | Healing

We provide mediation which is solution oriented, future focussed and child-focussed in parenting matters.

Mediation is a proven process whereby a neutral or impartial person, the mediator, helps those in dispute to discuss and re-evaluate the issues in a safe, respectful and confidential environment in order to come up with solutions of their own making, typically resulting in an outcome each party can live with and which least interrupts their lives.

Mediation = resolution without litigation.


Family dispute resolution

We can help parents to discuss parenting issues, identify options and work out parenting and property agreements that are in the best interests of the children and in a safe and controlled environment.
