Family Dispute Mediation

Are you unable to register quickly for a mediation at a Family Relationship Centre such as Centacare or Relationships Australia ?

Is private mediation a too costly alternative for you?

I can help.

I offer affordable and timely mediation in family dispute resolution when you need it.

I also realise it is difficult for parties to arrange a time for mediation during work hours. As a result, I offer mediation times after-hours and on Saturdays and Sundays.
