Deborah Clapshaw

I am passionate about family and the way it shapes our lives. I understand from personal experience the impacts of separation on family and especially on children. My primary aim in mediating parenting disputes is to put the children first to reduce the impacts of separation on them and to ensure , where appropriate, they have a strong continuing, loving bond with both parents, as promoted by the Family Dispute Resolution Act 2013. My process is a facilitative one - I believe that the parties are the best judges of what will be in the best interests of their children and with help will reach sound and informed decisions for them.
