Kelly Sutton

Vice Chair

Kelly is an accredited mediator, a relationship mediator and certified divorce coach and a transition and recovery coach. Kelly also specialises in collaborative process, and pre-mediation divorce coaching to help clients prepare, plan for, and confidently navigate and engage in the separation and divorce process through individualised support and skill building.

Kelly is of Ngai Te Rangi descent and lives between Te Whanganui-a-Tara and Tāhuna, Aotearoa (Wellington and Queenstown, New Zealand). Kelly’s background is in law where she practised as a lawyer for many years in New Zealand, Canada and the United Kingdom. Her interest in divorce coaching, mediation and collaborative process developed after going through her own divorce as a mother of three children under 10.

Twelve years later she has a successful co-parenting and business relationship with her ex-husband. As a child of divorce, raised as a teenager by her father, Kelly has first-hand experience of the importance of children maintaining a healthy relationship with both parents post-divorce and is acutely aware of the effect divorce has on men and their essential role as fathers. Kelly is excited to be part of CRNZ advocating collaborative process for New Zealand families to feel safe and secure in the knowledge they are in good hands to help them make their own sound informed decisions moving forward.
