Susie Rayner

NMAS Mediator, Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner and New Ways for Families Coach.

Susie Rayner is a NMAS Accredited Mediator and registered Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner. She is also a New Ways for Families Coach with a passion for helping families with children to sort out their issues without harming their children.

She has co-authored a book with international expert Bill Eddie from the High Conflict Institute and created a program called New Ways for Life to help young people learn simple skills that young people need to cope with the ups and downs of life. 



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??
