Having worked as a lawyer for Australia’s foremost law firm for many years and later as a negotiation trainer and conflict coach for a Top 10 ASX company, Jacqueline unexpectedly found herself in the process of having to negotiate a divorce settlement with the father of her three young children. Despite all her experience and all those skills, she still found the process stressful.

Jacqueline therefore founded Separation and Divorce Advisors (formerly Bridge the Gap Advisors) to provide professional negotiation, conflict coaching and family law support to others going through a similar experience.
