How can we help you?

Family Mediation

If you?re struggling to make decisions about how your children will spend time with you and their other parent, family mediation might be able to assist. Even if you?ve been separated or divorced for ages or your current agreement just doesn?t work anymore, family mediation may be the bridge to new, workable agreements.

Negotiation Coaching

Let?s face it ? you?re struggling right now because you don?t know the most valuable way to negotiate with your ex-partner. If you?re getting stuck in the revolving door of conflict every time you need to agree on something, discover some new ways to negotiate with the other significant adult in your children?s life.

Workshops & Resources

Sometimes families really struggle even once they have steadfast agreements in place. This is where co-parenting workshops and communication seminars can really make a difference. Change is difficult, but if how you?re doing things right now isn?t working ? you?ve only got one person you can control and affect ? you!??

Make things better for you and your children

What Our Clients Say

  • I attended a Co-parenting workshop and Kirsty was brilliant in helping everyone there deal with a difficult, and at times traumatic, period of our lives. She had real-life strategies for dealing with communication issues, parenting and of course.. the relentless conflict. Kirsty helped me feel confident about the future. Kirsty clearly has so much knowledge, training and experience in these issues, and the fact she has experienced co-parenting issues in her own life meant she knew exactly what we are going through and wasn’t just preaching from a text book, she is amazing at what she does and I can’t thank you enough Kirsty. PS: I have already started reading the book you suggested.

  • Kirsty has helped me navigate a very complex situation concerning my now adult daughter and a very hostile situation with my ex. Her advice and genuine desire for the best outcome for all parties especially the children is absolutely clear. Unbiased, direct but easy to listen to. I used her wisdom to change my own behaviour and reactions as I have zero control over the other parties. Life is much easier and less stressful using her strategies.

  • Kirsty demonstrated professionalism and impartiality.
    It was clear to me that Kirsty’s main priority was working with each party to achieve common ground in order to reach an outcome.
    Kirsty was not shy to call a spade a spade and I appreciated this honesty.
    The mediation session was challenging and took a number of hours more than what was included in the fee however Kirsty encouraged discussions to continue and eventually an agreement was reached.

  • ?My ex de-facto chose Kirsty and I held no expectations in respect of outcome.

    I was aware Kirsty had gone through a separation and was co-parenting and I?initially had?some reservations that Kirsty may hold bias because of her own experiences and this would disadvantage me. However within minutes of sitting down with Kirsty?this concern dissipated.

    If you genuinely desire to resolve parenting?matters, I have no hesitation in recommending Kirsty.

  • I was in a situation with my ex where we couldn’t agree on anything. Every communication was difficult.
    With support from Kirsty I was able to totally change the situation to a point where we can reach agreement about everyday things as well as important issues.
    We still have moments, but I now have the skills to facilitate our communication and I’m no longer anxious at the mere prospect of having to discuss something.


Yes! I want to mediate.
What now?

The first step in the mediation process is to make contact with your mediator Kirsty,?and book your intake meeting.

Next, Kirsty will contact your ex-partner and invite them to mediation. ?When?they agree to mediate, they will also have an intake meeting with Kirsty.?Following these initial meetings, you will choose a date for mediation and then participate in pre-mediation and negotiation coaching with Kirsty.?

Mediation day is the final step toward reaching agreement about the things that are important to each of you and your children. ?

However, what happens after mediation is sometimes the most difficult. ?Some families struggle to?live with the agreements reached at mediation. ?If this happens to you, Kirsty is?here?to support you with one-one?coaching and group workshops so you can make your life different.
