Trish Blyth

FDR Mediation

Trish has over 30 years of experience as a mediator. She is a Fellow, coach, and Assessor for Resolution Institute and an Associate of AMINZ.

Trish previously practiced as a Family Lawyer. However, having seen how much time, energy, and money her clients spent dealing with their disputes through legal channels, she returned to her passion of mediating.
Trish has been an accredited FDR Provider since it began in 2014.

Trish loves how mediation provides a process where parents can make the best decisions for their children. She conducts mediations in person and on zoom.

Because of her own personal experience (having been through two separations, affecting her daughter), Trish has always wanted to help families get through the heartache of separation in a way that they make the best decisions for their children. As a Mediator with the FDR Centre, she is able to do this.
