Trusted McKenzie Friend Bernadette Lindley  
Residing in West Sussex Bernadette is an experience MKF within all areas of child arrangements, she has spent 10 years assisting parents to understand the process and expectations of the family court system with the welfare of the child/ren always at the heart of proceedings.

She has 3 of her own children and personally went through the family court process alone, since that point she has devoted her time to learning anything court related to provide the best service to clients possible, GDPR, children’s rights and safeguarding both children and vulnerable adults.

As well as this, she has completed level 3 diplomas in mediation and counselling to help dispute resolutions prior to the poring of escalation where possible. Due to having personally been through the system alone she has a clear understanding how life consuming proceedings can seem and how important it is to have someone who understands expectations assist parents both emotionally and morally.
