Client Testimonials

  • I came to Yvette for mediating parenting and property issues in 2019 and into 2020. She created a safe space for everyone involved at a difficult time and kept the conversation on track so we could get to an agreement. When mediation was over I felt calm, almost lighter inside with the arrangements finally clear, working and few changes needed. I am grateful to have found someone with her experience and concern for us during that stressful time. I have chosen to keep my identity confidential and asked Yvette to post this on my behalf.

  • I just wanted to share my experience firsthand with Yvette Strawbridge. I used one of her services which was for mediation purposes, as she does many. The mediation was between myself and my ex partner for the benefit of our two children for them to have a better functional life. I found her to be very professional with her work, fair and listening to both sides carefully to work out how our issues could be resolved. I believe the issues were resolved as best as they could and if I had to I would use her services again and would recommend her to anyone. My two children got to have their say as well, one on one with her, which I thought was a great way to find out how they were really coping with the big picture of separation of the family breaking up.
