Making a difference drives us

At SOS Sucess we passionately believe that when our clients have the right strategies and emotional support they need going through mediation or separation, they will get to the issues much more quickly, spend less on fees, and less time working through the legal process. Clients who take this approach come out better, stronger, more amicable, and preserve those relationships that are important to them.

We aim to achieve success by focusing and motivating clients through their goals and guiding them to make sound decisions for their future.

Te Horo

“Kelly was recommended by a friend and I was hugely impressed with her professionalism and her kind and caring attitude right from the start. I knew during our first complimentary “get to know each other” session that she was going to be able to help me. My ex-husband and I worked with Kelly together to come up with a separation agreement that was fair and focused on the needs of the children. Kelly was able to help us to do this amicably, maintained a neutral position and kept us on track when emotions ran high. Her knowledge of the law in relation to separation and trusts was invaluable and she bought up issues we hadn’t even thought of. Kelly helped us work through these issues to come up with viable solutions. I would not have wanted to be on this journey without Kelly walking alongside us.  I would recommend her to any couple or individual who needs help to navigate the very difficult and emotional journey of separation. 


"Kelly led me through my worst nightmare with compassion, courage, confidence and at times, some much needed humour. Her business and legal experience gave me confidence to have her facilitate a successful separation agreement that meet our family and business needs to move forward amicabily."


"Having clients work with Kelly as a coach has made my practice as a mediator easier and more successful. My clients come to mediation less overwhelmed and fearful and are well prepared to engage in the mediation process with clear goals, effective communication skills and confidence. Importantly, it makes the separation and mediation process easier for my clients to navigate and fully participate in the decision making process about their future."


“Kelly helped my brother during what was a very difficult separation. This was a time of crisis and high conflict. Kelly was kind, calm and reassuring. Her advice and support helped him to think straight, remain calm and make the right choices and changes required to move forward towards his end goal of a mutually agreed fair and equal parenting agreement. Kelly also helped to create the best separation team for him to get through this process successfully.”

“We were both 100% satisfied with Kelly and would highly recommend her to anyone going through the divorce process.”
