Dianne was a wonderful mediator and took time to listen and understand as well as suggesting several helpful modifications to allow us to come to a mutual agreement. I highly recommend her services. Thank you Dianne!

Sophie was brilliant. Her initial communication regarding the process was excellent. She was unbiased in her approach and attempted to ensure that both of us came to an acceptable agreement. We willingness to go above and beyond was evident in her email communication throughout the entire process and was so reassuring throughout. Thank you Sophie.

I found Bayside Mediation a great benefit for those entering unknown territory. A split from a partner is never an easy process, the good people at BM made it simple for us. They explained everything very clearly and explained where each person stood. Thank you Bayside Mediation. Moving on happily and without regret.

I engaged Dianne at Mediation Matters to assist with coming to an agreement on a single parenting decision. Dianne was prompt to engage the process, clear and upfront with how the mediation would work and what I needed to consider coming into it. Unfortunately my daughters father chose not to attend mediation, however, Dianne provided ongoing support and referrals to assist me even though the mediation was unsuccessful. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. If you genuinely wish to resolve your issues, I believe Dianne has the right approach to help achieve this.

With you every step of the way

At Bayside Mediation, we understand that the journey through family separation is filled with complexities and emotions.

We're more than just a service; we're your compassionate partners, providing a caring hand to guide you through these challenging times.

Our goal is to alleviate the burdens you might be facing and empower you to make the best decisions for your family.

Empathy in Action

Our mediation process is grounded in empathy and understanding, fostering an environment where each party feels heard and supported.

Client-Centric Solutions

Unlike the rigid structures of traditional legal proceedings, mediation allows for personalised, client-centric solutions that prioritise the unique needs of your family.

Child-Inclusive Focus

With a firm commitment to the well-being of children, our child-inclusive approach ensures their best interests remain central to every discussion.


By sidestepping the escalating costs of legal battles, mediation offers a cost-effective alternative for families seeking resolution without financial strain.

Why choose mediation?

Discover a kinder path forward

In the often tumultuous landscape of family separation, choosing mediation over traditional legal processes brings forth a host of invaluable benefits. At Bayside Mediation, we advocate for a more humane and effective approach, steering clear of prolonged conflicts and exorbitant costs associated with litigation.
