Effective Mediation

Looking for an experienced mediator with a track record of enabling parties to achieve settlement?

Mediation is a cost-effective way to resolve disputes using a neutral, third-party who facilitates the exploration of issues and solutions. Settlement moves clients from tension to relief; from deadlock to forward movement.

I work with clients to understand the key issues and what is needed to move on.  I am able to have the tough conversations at the right time to help get a deal done.

Mediating different cases across diverse sectors

Commercial disputes

I have been a practising mediator since 2004 (CEDR accredited 2005). I have mediated successful disputes across a wide range of sectors, both public and private.

Experienced in two-party and multi-party disputes, my above-average settlement rate reflects a collaborative approach. I work effectively with every party to create a safe space where they can assess settlement options.

Employment & Workplace disputes

I support colleagues, who are struggling to communicate effectively to move into a constructive working relationship.

Wills, trust and probate disputes

I work with individuals and families in a sensitive manner to explore all aspects of a situation. This enables parties to negotiate an agreement that brings the dispute to a close.

Mediation Guiding principles





Instilling confidence enables tough conversations at the right time in order to get a deal done.

I have a deep commitment to help parties find effective solutions and I am tenacious about enabling settlement.

I understand the cost of conflict to individuals and organisations. I listen for the deeper concerns and enable people to feel heard and understood.

I take time to communicate clearly and with mutuality. I can pivot quickly to adapt to changing circumstances.
