Yvonne Healing has vast experience in the conduct of care proceedings for all parties – local authorities; children; parents; and the Official Solicitor.
She conducts hearings in courts at all levels. The majority of her cases take place in the Family Courts and the Family Division of the High Court.
She regularly deals with complex and high profile cases.
She frequently deals with cases involving international elements; serious criminal offences; terrorism; modern slavery; paedophile groups; non accidental injuries, including poisoning and fabricated or induced illness by carers; brain injuries; and severe emotional abuse.
Yvonne also represents parents or other family members in private law cases, particularly those in which the child is made a party, or there is local authority or other professional involvement.
She conducts seminars in chambers and individually for firms of solicitors.
Yvonne qualified as a mediator with CEDR in 2010. Her mediation practice centres on property disputes, both between individuals, and organisations.
Yvonne has been an advocacy trainer since 2008. She trained with the Honourable Society of Inner Temple, and ensures that she devotes a proportion of her time to this every year.
Yvonne is an experienced practitioner and teacher of meditation and yoga. She utilises the skills and knowledge in these areas in her daily life, which of course includes her professional work.
