Child focussed mediator



I was provided with Sharon's contact details during a very turbulent phase in my marriage.
Sharon was very approachable to deal with and above all very caring.
Sharon's strong work ethic was evident as Sharon was continuously checking in with me to ensure that I was doing OK .
The main reason of seeking mediation with Sharon was to establish equitable custody rights for my 10 month old son.
The dispute between my spouse and I had gotten out of control.
Sharon in a very professional manner established structure and control of this ongoing dispute.
Sharon's has a great deal of experience in family mediation and this was highly evident as sharon appreciated each sides concerns and assisted in effectively coming to a common agreement.
It was most pleasurable and comforting working with sharon during this difficult phase.
I would highly recommend Sharon to anyone that is going through family's difficulties.
As the breadth and skill of professional mediation available from Sharon will serve one extremely well.

Sharon provided assistance in whatever way she possibly could but the marital relationship is not in a space where it could benefit from mediation. Sharon is extremely professional and helpful and displays a great level of understanding. I would recommend mediation and Sharon Morrissey Mediation to a friend.

I found Sharon to be understanding, professional and practical, during a very difficult and confusing time in my life. My ex and I both moved from a time of conflict and bitterness to a place where we got our priorities right and moved on in a manner which was respectful of the other. Sharon was hugely instrumental in this and I remain indebted to her.

Thanks for your help so far through all of this, it did really help my ex-wife and myself through these difficult and complicated moments lifting some of the burdens of the practical side of these things while also making us focussing better on the kids.

At the weekend we will tell them, and during the weekend I will move out. I hope everything will go as well as can be reasonably expected but I’m sure our effort (and your help) will be a good starting point.

Sharon helped us feel relaxed and comfortable and made us consider other options. Thanks and good luck with your career.
I would like to say thank you so much for your help in this really difficult time, It really helped us come up with a fair and workable plan for the future. I just hope telling the kids goes as well as it can and we'll go from there
