Why you should work with us

Nikki has been a wonderful asset and support system during a time that I found incredibly difficult to navigate on my own. Knowing I wanted to move through my separation and divorce in a way that was conscious, Nikki helped hold the space for this. She is incredibly knowledgeable about Family Court systems and also has a holistic approach allowing her clients to not fall into the spiral of what divorce and separation can bring on. She knows many valuable people from psychologists to lawyers to holistic practitioners that can also assist you to move through the difficult period in ones life. She is also incredibly empathetic and truly listens!
CC, Mum - Coaching Client
I had many meetings with Nikki in regards to my son's separation from his tumultuous marriage and our fears for our grandchildren. Nikki was always helpful and caring and helped us weather our way through a very hard time to sit and watch our son and grandchildren fall apart in front of your eyes is traumatic to say the least. Nikki’s help kept me sane through the whole ordeal.

Nikki Parkinson is one of my most favourite women. I first met her when I presented at her creative workshop series in Byron Bay. She’s warm and friendly, super professional and she is surrounded by an inspired, creative community. I can highly recommend Nikki at both a business and at a personal level, you won’t find a more genuine and generous being than Nikki.
Kate James, Mindfulness Coach - Total Balance
Working with Nikki was one of the best decisions I have made. Not only did Nikki educate me on the family law process, she guided and coached me towards a successful outcome. Even better, Nikki saved me thousands on lawyers fee's. She is simply great!
Jeff Moss, Dad - Coaching Client
I first met Nikki about 20 years ago while she was working with a family law specialist in a busy practice based in Lismore and we have worked with each other (often opposite each other in matters) ever since. I have come to know Nikki very well in both professional and personal context. I can, without reservation, vouch for her depth of knowledge and understanding about the various issues surrounding relationship and marital separation. Nikki's skill set extends well beyond the legal aspects of separation. She has an understanding of the impact of separation from an emotional, psychological, financial and personal perspective. Throw into the mix Nikki's amazing and enviable organisational skills, and what you end up with is a complete and comprehensive package which represents a holistic approach to solving the problems which arise from family separation.
