Trained Counsellor and Family Mediator (FDRP)
Separation can be hard to navigate. Start moving forward today.
Hi. My name is Bonnie Douglas and I am a Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner (FDRP) and mediator. I am also a counsellor and coach. I am an expert at helping people to live their best lives post-separation. I will help you to navigate a confusing system during a time when you may feel overwhelmed, angry, frustrated or scared, to build a strategy forward and emerge from the experience stronger, balanced and ready to move forward.
I’ve been through separation with children, the hard way and I really don’t recommend it. I tried to work with my ex through 6 mediation sessions then battled him through two separate court trials over a 5 year period. We wound up in an on-going high-conflict co-parenting situation that manifested very unhappy children and parents. When our youngest told her psychologist that her father is Voldemort I was completely devastated. I did not want our children to despise and fear their father. It’s taken 2.5 years of careful work to support my children to re-build their relationship with their father and everyone is much happier now.
