Hello, my name is Catherine and I trained in mediation with FriaryLaw.
My background is quite diverse having worked in business and also in community with experience in DV (domestic violence). Over the last 20 years I have worked in human resources and more recently as an employment law advisor hence I have some experience in workplace disputes. Additionally, I have over 25 years’ experience in business which adds value to my work in commercial and civil disputes. In 2010 as a response to the tight labour market I set up Fresh Thinking which offers a mediation service.
Overall, as a practicing mediator I bring professionalism, confidentiality and an open mind to mediation and expect to cut through the below the surface issues that can get in the way of the real issues that need time and attention to mutually benefit all concerning parties.
