Dianne and Alina are two incredibly caring and knowledgeable people who guided me through a difficult time with empathy and understanding.They were impartial and at all times supported both myself and my ex through very difficult sessions. They made me us both do our homework so we could each make informed decisions. They helped with resources, (I had no idea what I was doing or what I was legally entitled to) and gave practical advice.Dianne’s mediation experience together with Alina’s legal expertise meant that I felt empowered to negotiate, and the outcome was fair to both sides. I learnt so much in the process, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.

Before starting down this path, I had not heard of mediation as a way to approach our separation but right from the very first phone call, Alina won my confidence in her ability to shepherd my ex and me through the minefield of separation.Alina has a unique talent to connect with both parties in the separation and takes a practical and pragmatic approach to the challenges that separation presents.Thank you for helping us through this process Alina - you made a difficult situation feel effortless and we felt very supported the whole way through.

Alina helped us to navigate and successful reach agreement on property settlement. She showed compassion but was also firm with both parties when needed. I’m very thankful that she was able to bring about agreement as there is no way we could have done this without her. I would happily recommend Alina to other couples seeking meditation, or even those wondering if mediation could would work for them.

I had one meeting with a solicitor and frankly, it scared me. It felt impersonal and a little too aggressive for me. I can't thank Alina enough for making what was a very difficult period in my life much easier to deal with and more humane. She managed to diffuse an awkward and hostile situation where I had failed. She has cared for me every step of the way. I have come away from this process feeling very satisfied and optimistic about the future, knowing that the outcomes we achieved were extremely fair to both of us. If you need help in this area, look no further.

I really appreciate Alina's guidance, professionalism and diplomacy. It's not an easy process, but Alina has a way of cutting through and simplifying things.

I didn’t know mediation existed until I was in the throws of a divorce. Even though I had lawyers, even they admitted that our mediation sessions drove the process far faster than the court system. Even if you think you are on the same page as your ex, Di and her team will be able to help you articulate your parenting plan and spot the potential issues. Her years of experience can guide you through the system. Do yourself a favour and use this channel rather than the legal one.

Although this is the first experience I have had with any kind of family mediation. I have found the experience and Dianne's professionalism (yet empathetic approach) to be of moral and high standards. Through Dianne's professional guidance and specialised nous, we were able to arrive at a parental plan which was considerate to both parties, and most importantly - in the optimal interest of our very young child.Dianne is diligent in the care and advice she provides Highly recommend her services - and the hard work she has cut out for her, negating individual and unique circumstances.

Dianne tried her hardest to get my nasty ex across the line, it ended up 12 months after the court finally convinced him of what the result we had already come to with Dianne. Dianne was nothing but understanding, caring and also informative and I appreciate all I did with her and all she did for me x

I recommended a friend who was in need of financial mediation and she was greatly helped by Dianne who has a wealth of knowledge and experience and made the whole process much smoother.

Thank you Alina.You have no idea how much you have helped me. And I am sure its the same for my wife, she probably doesn't realise it yet.Thank you for being genuine and going out of your way to help us.Appreciate it. Worth every penny.And thank you so much for suggesting to opt for child inclusive program. Otherwise we wouldn't have known the things we learned about our son.A big thank you. Keep doing what you do.

Welcomed with kindness, understanding and genuine care for all to work to an amicable agreement where children are included. Couldn’t recommend this service highly enough and could not be more grateful for the time and attention to individual needs.

Bayside mediation made the process of agreeing how to separate our assets as pain free as possible. Highly recommend.

Its worth every cent, speaking with Alina to make a scheduled roster for the shared care of our children was not an easy process but thanks to the help if a professional mediator we could finally come to an agreement.Definitely recommended if you can afford it over the public system.... and if you cant start saving. What price would you put on your mental and physical well being?

I would give Alina 10 stars if I could. Availability is made to suit both parties at all times and communication is always open. She has helped me through the toughest time in my life for my family and I only wish I had of found her sooner.
