In 2004 Lidy qualified, with a Graduate Diploma in Family Dispute Resolution, and practices Family Law Mediation assisting parents and children through their separation and divorce. A further qualification in working with children allows Lidy to include children in her mediation work.
The latest string in Lidy’s bow in her training is working with couples as a Pre-Marriage Counsellor. More information about Lidy’s Pre-Marriage Program can be found on this site.
