As an energetic mediator since 1997 working in a wide variety of contexts, my services are usually sought where conflicts have become entrenched. I work together with those affected by a dispute to explore positive ways to resolve all types of complaints and conflicts. With sound approaches to encourage and facilitate people to engage with the challenges facing them, Mediation is a healthy process in that it encourages participants to take responsibility for working through issues in a safe and productive environment.
