  • Feeling like you’re losing (or have lost) your enthusiasm for Collaborative Process.

  • Not getting cases happening as often as you’d like

  • Worried that you are out of touch with how Collaborative Process is actually operating since you trained

  • not feeling confident about running a Collaborative case

  • feel you need to practice your skills in a safe way

Specialising in family law for over 20 years, Selina focuses on assisting families to resolve disputes through mediation and Collaborative practice. As of last year, she took the step of achieving a long held ambition to make her practice litigation-free!


Selina currently serves as a Director on the Board of the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals (IACP) and serves as a member or co-Chair of several IACP Committees. She is a past Chair of Collaborative Resolution NZ (CRNZ). She has attended overseas education events in Collaborative Process, including
"Training for Trainers" with IACP.


Selina has previously worked as a contract lecturer in dispute resolution at AUT University. She is regularly invited to present at conferences here and overseas about aspects of Collaborative Process. 

An accountant, mediator and experienced Collaborative Professional, Rosemarie works hard to assist people to resolve disputes that could become time consuming and damaging in a more holistic, positive way. She acts as an impartial third party, either as a mediator or collaborative financial neutral, working to strengthen relationships and find a constructive way forward.

Rosemarie is a Professional member of Resolution Institute (LEADR), a Fellow (Mediator) and Panel List Mediator with AMINZ, and a registered FDR provider with the Ministry of Justice. She has thousands of hours experience in family law mediation and commercial disputes in New Zealand and Australia.


She has brought her financial and resolution acumen to a number of Collaborative Process cases as a member of the Collaborative professional team.  This multitalented professional has recently added another feather to her cap – completing her law degree.

Following a career in accounting, specialising in taxation law, Karen made the transition to the field of family law.

Out of concern about the potentially damaging effects she saw in litigation for her clients and their families, Karen strives to adopt a harm reduction approach to her cases. As a result, she has undertaken training as a mediator and Collaborative Professional.

Karen has undertaken numerous Collaborative cases, many as part of a multidisciplinary team. Along with Selina Trigg and Jacinta Gallant (Canada), she co-authored the New Zealand specific content of the Our Family in Two Homes resource book.  


Karen is a member of the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals (IACP).

A barrister and mediator with over 30 years’ experience in litigation and dispute resolution over a wide range of legal issues with particular emphasis on civil and family disputes.

Practising as a barrister since 2004, she has worked primarily in family law, assisting parties in the resolution of their disputes over children, property and estates as well as taking on assignments as lawyer for child, lawyer for subject person and counsel to assist the Court.  She has always strived to work alongside clients and find solutions that work for the wellbeing of the client in the longer term.  Collaborative process fits well with this ethos.


Kirsty has been proactive in the establishment of Collaborative process in New Zealand, contributing to the establishment of Collaborative Resolution NZ, assisting with training, addressing various audiences on the topic and incorporating it in her day to day practice. Over the years since training in the Collaborative process at the second New Zealand training held, she has gained significant experience in working with clients using the Collaborative process both in person and more recently using Zoom.


Her involvement with Family law resulted in a number of years on the executive of the Family Law Section of the New Zealand Law Society (in the role of chair from 2017 to 2020) and she is a past Convener of the Auckland District Law Society Family Law Subcommittee.

She enjoys her role as mediator which helps inform her practice as a Collaborative lawyer.  She is  accredited to the NZLS Family Specialist Panel of Mediators  and a member of the Arbitrators and Mediators' Institute of New Zealand (AMINZ).
