Shane, I admire you as a person, and as a mediator. Not only did you give me some good honest home truths that I was initially upset with, and had to go home and think about, you helped me sort out my emotions and gave me the tools to move forward.



Shane, the work you did for me in court these last few months has been amazing. Over these last few appearances you have kept telling me to hang in there, and I am so glad I did. Not only did you keep myself, and my family on the right track, but you saw qualities in me and passed those on to the Magistrate, when I had lost all hope. Thanks so much mate.

I’m doing really well and couldn’t be happier. Somewhere in all of this you have to take some of the credit for playing a part in steering me back on the right track with my matters. Keep being awesome Shane.
