Bianca Roche-Bolger is a founding member of The Mediation Collective, where she collaborates with three other highly experienced colleagues to provide best practice post-separation services. Our work at The Mediation Collective is aimed at creating alternatives to the adversarial approach of litigation in family disputes. We back each other and trust each other.

Operating within a cooperative model of family support professionals means that families going through separation have access to a range of backgrounds and skills. Being part of this collegial environment creates a resource rich experience for families, and means the children have the best chances of a positive outcome.

My Mission

I help adults to protect children. My main mission is to support parents during one of the most difficult times of their lives to create space so they can be available to their children. 

I work from an empathetic, relational framework, aiding my clients in understanding their conflict and grief in the context of systemic theory, relational trauma and neurobiology.

Ultimately, I understand relationships are tricky but they are also the things that make us thrive. Life goes through cycles around our relationships and sometimes there will be pain and trauma related to change. When I am walking beside you I can help mitigate those challenges by providing you the tools to find your own way forward for your family.
