Family Mediator and Conflict Coach

“We want the best for our children, but sometimes we feel like there’s nothing we can do about destructive behaviour from their other parent.

Hi, I’m Kirsty and I have supported hundreds of families over more than 6 years, to see the impact their divorce is having on their chidlren.

If your kid’s other parent is a constant cause of drama and heartache the Parenting Orders Program is for you.
Sometimes, our ex is a destructive force in the life of our children.  If you’re currently in court, it’s likely you know how difficult things can get.

I know what it’s like to struggle to communicate with your child’s other parent.  It’s 12 years since my marriage ended and I’ve been where you are.  Some days it didn’t seem to matter what I did or what I said, there was no winning.

Whether you’re just separated, you’ve been struggling for ages, or ‘something’ has just changed everything – YOU have the power to stop the arguments, abuse and control!

I can show you a different way of life for you and your children.
Join me today for the Court Approved Parenting Orders Program. “

This workshop or course is for you, if you're in Court and don't see eye to eye with your child's other parent, if you need to learn how to protect your children from the conflict arising from being in court, or if you need to know how to improve your co-parenting so the conflict reduces, and doesn't impact your children.

“I was in a situation with my ex where we couldn’t agree on anything. Every communication was difficult. However, with support from Kirsty, I was able to totally change the situation.

Now, we can reach an agreement about everyday things as well as important issues. We still have moments of tension, but I now have the skills to facilitate our communication. I’m no longer anxious at the mere prospect of having to discuss something.”

Belinda, 40yo Mum

“My ex de-facto chose Kirsty, and I held no expectations regarding the outcome.

Initially, I was aware that Kirsty had gone through a separation and was co-parenting herself. I had some reservations that Kirsty may hold bias because of her own experiences, which could potentially 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.”

“Kirsty has helped me navigate a very complex situation concerning my now adult daughter and 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 party.

Life is much easier and less stressful using her strategies.”

Kirsty-Anne, 35 yo Mum

Frequently Asked Questions

Does my 'ex' need to come with me? Of course it would be beneficial for your children's other parent to attend the POP course. However, we ensure that each parent attends at a different time to you. It's important that you're able to speak freely and not be worried about reactions from the 'other side'.

What if we are amicable and just want to be better co-parents? It's still really important that you can get support with the issues causing you difficulty, or receive information about how to improve your co-parenting relationship, without your kids other parent present.

Can my current partner attend with me? It's great that your current patner wants to support your co-parenting journey and understand what you'll be learning at the workshop. However, so that YOU can get the most out of the course, and so THEY can too, it's important that you attend at different times. Our workshops are run regularly, so be sure there's another program in just a couple of weeks.
