About Wendy

I am the Principal of Mediation Matters Melbourne and Co-founder of the FDR Collective. I am a Nationally Accredited Mediator, Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner, Conflict Coach, and I am trained in Collaborative Practice. I also provide mediation and family dispute resolution training, and coaching for Relationships Australia and Monash University.

Since becoming a Family Lawyer over 20 years ago, I have been assisting clients to reach agreement in parenting, property and financial matters. With a background in psychology, I am compassionate and understanding of relationship challenges and the needs of children. Over the last decade, I have focused exclusively on mediation and family dispute resolution to help resolve issues respectfully and collaboratively.
