Mediation for Health-Care-Education/Commercial and Civil
My mediation journey began on a personal level with my son who has Autism twenty nine years ago. This developed into many different areas. I work with much compassion, understanding and non judgemental approach with complete confidentiality. Extensive global experience living within other cultures and teaching abroad equipped me for situations of conflict increasing my own social and cultural awareness.
