Her Why

Helping Kids find new ways to live their lives

Susie Rayner is a NMAS Accredited Mediator and Accredited Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner with a focus on helping parents sort out their issues without harming their children.

She has co-authored a book and created a course for young people. The course encompasses simple skills that young people need to cope with the ups and downs of life. The course is called “New Ways for Life” due to be published in early 2020.



Co-parenting is difficult sometimes and help from someone like Susie can make all the difference.

As a New Ways for Families coach she offers support to learn to co-parent without the conflict. Children can deal with their parents separating or divorcing, however, what really affects them, and what has detrimental effects to their social, emotional well-being, is the conflict that goes on between their parents.

As a Family Dispute Resolution practitioner she helps parents to negotiate their parenting agreements and property settlements. In Family Dispute Resolution, you can put forward proposals, negotiate and come up with your own options for your future. It may be the case that both parties may not be entirely happy with the outcome but essentially it’s about the kids – what are their best interests??
