You have to make some tough decisions about what happens next.

You’ve tried to discuss this together, but the arguing has worsened, no one is listening to each other, or it’s getting nasty. Maybe a caring friend has mentioned mediation. Or your lawyer has said you have to mediate. And you’re worried about what you’re walking into.

I’m a Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner and a Nationally Accredited Mediator. I’m here to help you.

What if you were given a chance to

so you could walk into mediation feeling confident and ready to do what needs to be done for your children and yourself?

I’m Marnie, and I’ve been where you are

you can get to the other side of separation to feel the relief and satisfaction of knowing you did all you could to make the situation work.

My role here is to help you tolerate the discomfort, support you in preparing a considered plan, and calmly and respectfully guide you through an effective mediation process.
