“Children exposed to family violence can experience long-term effects on their development and have increased risk of mental health issues, behavioural and learning difficulties.”Monica Campo

“Every child needs a voice - every child needs to be loved.”Darren Mort

“The ‘forgotten’ victims of family violence are the children who witness it.”Adam M. Tomison

For many years, my work has highlighted for me the need to help children going through family breakdown and being subjected to family violence.  As a youngster I also experienced this. Children’s mental and physical health are often the first casualties when parental relationships sour. Their needs are often overlooked.  Through my charity, the To Be Loved Network, we provide media such as books and film, aimed at helping children navigate the difficult experience of family breakdown.  To Be Loved also provides resources for people (judges, lawyers, social workers, educators, families) who find themselves in this space.

I’ve been a Barrister in Family Law for nearly 30 years. I’ve had the privilege of being the Chair of Patterson’s Barrister List. Prior to being admitted to the Bar I was a County Court Judge’s Associate to Judge Hassett. During that time I also performed research work with other County Court Judges for the Sentencing Manual. My practice is in the areas of Family Law and DeFacto Property Law. I’m an accredited Arbitrator on the List of Arbitrators kept by the Australian Institute of Family Law Arbitrators and Mediators.

I’ve served as a Steering Committee Member on the Family Violence Taskforce headed by Chief Magistrate, Melbourne Magistrates’ Court. I’m a current Committee Member of the AFCC (Australian Chapter). In my desire to see young law practitioners succeed, I act as a Student Mentor for Melbourne University’s Law School, The University of Melbourne.

 

From feature films, stage productions, musical theatre, television and training videos, I have a broad experience with all things performing.  My work across these areas include acting, producing, writing and directing. You name it – I’ve done it!  What these experiences have shown me are that creative endeavours are food for the soul, not only for the performer, but also for the audience. I want to combine the creative and the hard core experiential (family breakdown) to assist kids going through upheavals in their home life.  There is a real need for children experiencing family violence, whose health is at risk to feel empowered instead of sidelined. They have the right to be loved.
