"" I found Shauna at Blackrock Mediation to be completely professional and helpful in our separation process. The opportunity to work things out amicably is more cost efficient and very effective for all parties. I would highly recommend her services and would point anyone in need in her direction again. 

Thanks for all your help Shauna"

Michelle, Co. Mayo

"Shauna made me feel comfortable from the start. I didn't know anything about how mediation worked but everything was explained very clearly. After a few sessions we reached an agreement we were both happy with. There are no words for the pressure that has been lifted from me, thank you."

Jessica, Ennis 

"Shauna brought us through the mediation process with extreme consideration for what our family was going through. She was very professional and always returned our calls and emails very quickly. It was impossible for me to see a positive outcome, but it did happen."

"I had the pleasure of supervising Shauna through her MA dissertation in mediation and she was a diligent, hard working and insightful practitioner to work with. She has a great depth of knowledge in relation to both the theory and practice of mediation in Ireland, and is a skilled practitioner. She has a wonderful, calm and cheerful manner and is a delight to work with"

Leanne, Galway

"Shauna generously contributed to a book I co-created called Living Together, Separating, Divorcing: Surviving During a Pandemic. She was gracious and forthcoming, responding swiftly to the call for articles. Shauna was supportive of this unusual project and a wonderful collaborator and colleague. Her article in the book offered practical advice to couples whose families were burdened by challenges of children at home, parents working from home or unemployed, and the general anxiety and uncertainty caused by the pandemic. Her recommendations offered a way to calm the churning of life during the pandemic"
