Who am I?

I am a fully qualified and accredited Mediator, having been practising as such since 1994. I undertake Family, Commercial and all types of Mediation and Conflict Resolution. I gained my qualification with the Family Mediators Association in 1994 and am accredited with the Legal Services Commission. I gained my qualification in Commercial Mediation with ADR Group in 2005.

I am a qualified Professional Practice Consultant and in that capacity, I supervise other Mediators and help themwith their Mediation Practice. In addition, I hold a qualification which entitles me to consult directly with children in the Mediation Process and I am qualified to carry out MIAMS assessments. I have acted as Consultant in setting up a Mediation Service for two firms of solicitors respectively and currently undertake Mediations as a Consultant for Blacks Solicitors of Leeds. I also train lawyers to become mediators on behalf of ‘Resolution - First for Family Law’ (the main recognised training body for mediators and solicitors in the UK)

I am a qualified Divorce and Relationship Coach and Life and Business Coach. I coach couples in my capacity as Divorce and Relationship Coach to assist in relationship difficulties and / or to help them through the divorce / separation.

In my capacity as Life and Business Coach, I coach/mentor clients adults and young people and I run workshops. I completed my training as a professional Coach with The Coaching Academy, graduating with a Diploma Excel in both Life Coaching and Corporate and Executive Coaching – the Coaching Academy is the most well-established and widely acclaimed coaching training provider. I am also a qualified practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), having obtained a Diploma accredited by International NLP Trainers Association (INLPTA). I have also completed a course at Masters Level in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) at Leeds LMU and I hold a qualification in Transactional Analysis.

I also facilitate the design of Personal Development Plans for individuals and groups.

I was a partner in an established firm of solicitors for 19 years specialising in all aspects of family law and subsequently provided family law consultancy services through a different also well-established firm of solicitors.

I have many varied clients - a sample of my clients include the The Department of Health, Royal Armouries in Leeds, Leeds City College, the Prison Service, Leeds City Council, various firms of solicitors and also private individuals such as business owners, teachers, students/young people, families, unemployed people and professionals.

The experience I have obtained during my law career, both in successfully helping clients at challenging points in their lives, and also as a partner in helping to manage a successful business, together with my longstanding coaching experience, has allowed me develop a range of skills which guide me in my mediation work.


What is Family Mediation?

Family Mediation is a process available for couples to use to resolve important issues arising out of their relationship break down ,for example, addressing how to separate your finances or how best to look after your children following separation without the need to go to court.

These are issues that can be so challenging and painful but that have to be dealt with before you can begin to live your lives separately. Mediation provides a safe and confidential place for this.

You retain control at all times and resolve your issues in a way that best suits you and your family.

Mediation can also be used to deal with any other related issues you need to resolve arising from your relationship break up and consequent separation.

What is Commercial Mediation?

Commercial Mediation is a process available to parties in conflict who wish to avoid going through the courts by reaching an agreement between themselves facilitated by a mediator. Such issues include business disputes, road traffic accident disputes, consumer issues, and almost any issue potentially involving court proceedings.

Other General Mediation/Conflict Resolution

Mediation generally helps to turn conflict and deadlock situations into change for the better. It helps people to see the whole picture which then enables them to find their own informed solution between them.

In this context, I undertake Mediation in all its varying forms to include Workplace Mediation, Conflict Resolution for Families/Groups/in the Community generally, Meetings Facilitation, Mediation and Conflict Resolution Consultancy.
