I am committed to doing my best to help anyone dealing with the aftermath of a relationship breakdown, and to help them work out the choices they have got and the best way forward both for them and for others. It is very important that things get better and that everyone is able to move on in a healthy way.
For most people -where it is possible- mediation gives the best chance of working out amicable agreements that take care of the needs of everyone, including and especially children where they are involved.
