Some clients (mostly female) prefer to hand over their delicate enquiry to a female Private Investigator because females very often have the natural ability to empathize with others, to quickly build up client trust and very often than not, have high observational skills.
This skill is especially important when dealing with a delicate matter (for example, reuniting a birth mother with their birth child, or locating a family member who has not notified the family of their current whereabouts and does not wish to be found).
Female investigators in most situations, tend to be more sensitive and are usually very patient and tactful throughout the enquiry. The nurturing side of the female P.I. comes into play when dealing with a delicate enquiry.
A trust situation with clients can be instantaneous or can be built up gradually and it is necessary to have a total understanding of the client’s current problem and concerns. That well known ‘female intuition’ also plays a big part in the female private investigator’s role.
Females possibly have a more relaxed attitude whilst encouraging people to divulge information regarding sensitive issues. Trust is very important during an investigation, therefore building that trust between investigator and client can be difficult, but rewarding, however, if an empathetic, understanding attitude and approach is used throughout, satisfying results can be achieved.
Not all enquiries are guaranteed to end well. For extremely sensitive enquiries – for instance; a birth mother looking for the child she had to part with for one reason or another, or an adult seeking out their birth mother – the person being sought has the right to refuse to give the Private Investigator their current contact details. There is a safe and secure way to get around this dilemma and it requires careful handling – and it does work. Put simply; the Private Investigator can be the “go-between”. Again, skill and empathy are needed to be able to successfully handle such a potentially explosive situation.
Females make up a small percentage of all privately licensed security professionals in Australia, thus giving female PIs an edge because they can offer something different from their male counterparts. They are especially good at undercover work because successfully blending into situations without drawing attention to oneself, is important in some cases.
Do not hesitate to contact Lesley Craig who is a female private investigator working out of Redland City, Queensland and who has thirteen years of experience negotiating delicate matters for clients. A 30 min no obligation phone call directly to Lesley (Manager), will give you peace of mind whether to move forward with your enquiry, or not. Some enquiries are so super sensitive, they need to be handled by the police and other enquiries will need to be handled by the Family Services, not a private investigator.
Whether the enquiry is the location of a missing person nature, or a small or large debtor, or even partaking in surveillance and undercover, female private investigators are usually incredibly good in this area of investigation. When a male phones our agency and asks for the female private investigator to handle their case, we feel very honoured that they understand that we females are just as good as the male investigators, if not better in some cases.
Another common trait amongst female private investigators is that they are very good at multi tasking which means they are able to attend to different aspects of the investigation without feeling overwhelmed.
If a female or male client specifically requests one or the other to attend to their needs, we adhere to their wishes. After all, the client needs to feel trust that the right person is handling their delicate enquiry.
Finally, to have a female private investigator as part of the team of any professional respectable investigative agency is a must and we at Trace and Identify (Australia) are proud that both the female and the male investigators handle the incoming workload.
