General Profile

Available for online mediation or online restorative circle work as well as conflict education. I am dedicated to mediation and peace building. I also believe that circle work gives people and groups better opportunity for mutual understanding and action planning and I am adaptive in my approach to conflicts, welcoming individual, organisational and group conflict queries. I like working to improve social and civil justice using conflict resolution approaches.

I bring over twenty years legal practice and management experience, combined with senior Board experience in public and charity sectors to inform my approach. I have trade union experience, and worked in the international publishing field for a period of time. I am currently completing a project management qualification so these skills combine to offer a creditable choice of mediator for disputes.

My approach is to facilitate parties to resolve differences and find successful solutions using non adversarial methods. I am at ease with stakeholder groups,board and leadership. Queries are welcome.

All specialities are self-selected by accredited mediators and does not imply specialist training in those areas. Additional training is required only for mediating with Separating Couples
