Lucy is an accredited mediator specialising as a Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner working in the Auckland region including Waiheke and remotely through video conference. 

Lucy has spent over a decade supporting families experiencing parenting challenges in both New Zealand and Australia across a range of family services. Since 2016 she has been combining this knowledge, empathy, and counselling skills working as a Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner (FDRP). 

As a practitioner Lucy is child focused, supporting families to tap into their own skills and resources and learn new skills and strategies to create practical and appropriate parenting solutions.
