More than sixty guests attended the launch of the book ‘Under Siege’ by Belinda Neil in 7 August 2014. Belinda gave a very inspiring talk with regards to some of her experiences in a trauma filled career which she loved and endured. Her voice is now for those who have been diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and the strategies that she personally found useful on her road to recovery.
Guests were glued to their seats whilst Belinda conveyed some of her most confronting cases. She articulated the events with great aplomb and the instant report back from the room was that she is incredibly inspiring and is a model of a non-blaming attitude but rather focusses on recovery.
Her eighteen year career was fuelled with an inquisitive intelligent mind coupled with her respect and strong values for doing her very best. This included having to deal with devastated families who were traumatized through crime.
Her book is a gripping and confronting recount of front line workers from which the public is largely shielded. She recounted some of her negotiation work which parallels the work carried out by mediators world wide. Her training apart from hostage negotiations was the Alternative Dispute Resolution model.
Belinda’s can be viewed to be in an advocacy role assisting those suffering from PTSD in the defense forces, firemen and woman and paramedics
Menzies Mediation is very were proud to support Belinda Neil in her advocacy role for PTSD.
Feedback from customers:
“You two are amazing at what you do. Who would have thought that a Parenting Plan and a Property Settlement could be settled completely within a couple of days. No courts, no solicitors no dragging of things and consequently decreasing the stress factor of the adult parties and of course the children who are almost forgotten due to high levels of stress experienced by the parents. The fees are amazing. I spent two years with lawyers and a Barrister which was very costly and the outcome was the same. The difference in expense was sixty thousand dollars. Thank you.” May 2017
