About me

When facing difficult experiences, such as the end of a relationship or the break-up of a family, it’s important for individuals to be provided with the tools they need to enable them to move forward.

I work with families and individuals to provide tailored advice while helping them to reach a workable way forward. I have specialist experience in advising and assisting unmarried couples regarding financial matters, and assisting with wealth protection at the outset of a relationship – including pre-nuptial and cohabitation agreements where appropriate. I also advise clients in relation to rural and farming businesses when relationships break down.

Outside work, my passions include travel, socialising and meeting and learning from new people.

Read questions I'm frequently asked

How long will it take?
Unfortunately this is never an easy question to answer. The length of time it takes to resolve matters varies greatly depending on the clients, issues and approach taken. However, if all involved are willing to compromise and focus on solutions at the outset, the quicker you’ll be able to resolve matters and get some finality.

What would you do?
I’m always open with clients about my own experiences of separation and the importance to me to ensure that everyone came out of it ok and that my children would still have the benefit of their parents working together for them. I think this is what most people want, so my advice is very often tailored with this in mind.

How much will it all cost me?
This is a genuine concern for every client. It depends on a variety of factors, but what is important is that you ensure you don’t spend any more than you need to – this means being solution-focussed, having all of the information at hand to make pragmatic and informed decisions, and having all the support you need to make those decisions as early as possible.
