My family law experience spans over 20 years. My passion for finding out-of-court solutions for clients lead me to study towards a Master of Laws (Family Law Mediation) and I hold a Graduate Diploma in Family Dispute Resolution Practice.
Subsequently, I began to practice in Collaborative Practice, after realising the additional and unique benefits it offers to separating couples at what is often a traumatic time of their lives.
The skills I gained in my mediation training have equipped me to work within the "interest based negotiation" model of Collaborative Practice - in particular working with clients to understand what is truly important to them as they move forward with their lives.
I am committed to Collaborative Practice and have been a member of the committees of the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals for many years.
I regularly attended training sessions (both nationally and internationally) in an effort to further my knowledge and continue to develop my skills in assisting clients to work towards a positive outcome for their family.
