Family Dispute Resolution: I am accredited with the Australian Attorney Generals Department
Child Consultant in Child Inclusive Practice in Family Dispute Resolution services with several 100 hours of experience
Mediation Counselling: Working on changing the negative cycle in the parent partnership. Parents as ʻsuperheroesʻ for overall family wellness.
We will begin conversations inviting change; giving voice to the strengths of the family rather than voice to a problem saturated family story. Together, we will be travelling on a new set of learner plates; a training wheel phase as it is all about parents post separation and the children.
Relationship and Family Counsellor: Leaning in or out of the relationship. Relationship is more than just couples; explore the relationship with self also. Family interactions influence the entire family system.
Summit Mediation Group is Sydney's leading family dispute resolution service, offering affordable, low-wait, professional and facilitative mediations to families in conflict.
We understand that family disputes come in many different forms and require special attention to understand your family dynamics. Our family dispute resolution practitioners, each accredited by the Attorney General, will listen to and understand your concerns with patience and respect.
Our passion is to provide you with a mediation experience that promotes collaborative discussions, facilitates the generation of effective solutions, and empower you with a sense of resolution.
We deliver mediation that is future focused, impartial and confidential. Our practitioners are experienced, professional and patient. We have selectively chosen our panel of practitioners who have a demonstrated ability to conduct mediations of the highest standard to a diverse range of family disputes.
We aim to see you within one to two weeks of initial contact. We will source the location of the sessions which are tidy, quiet and easily accessible. However, we know that under certain circumstances, physical mediations are not always possible. As a result, we offer online (video and audio) and telephone mediation services too. We mediate all kinds of family disputes, including separation, behavioural issues, grandparent disputes, family violence, parental arrangements, property settlement, finance disputes, and much more.
We understand that when families are in conflict, it can be a stressful time for everyone involved, especially children if you have them. We are here to help you move forward in these challenging times.

Businesses owners, claims advocacy, and estate planning conflicts are my primary focus.
My toolkit incorporates facets of family business advisory and formal mediation, neuroscience and NLP, combined with an intimate understanding of claims processes.
