As a family mediator, it is important to me to promote a strategy that takes into consideration the needs of the whole family.
Having worked with children, couples, and families for the last 10 years, my interest is helping people in dispute settle their differences amicably, without resorting to litigation.
A long time ago, in 1993, I earned a BSC (Hons) in Computing Information Systems at the University of Bath. After working in the city, I moved to North Somerset to raise a family of my own. Before being hired by Hertfordshire’s safeguarding children board after returning to the south east, I taught in further education. After that, I had the opportunity to work with families on finding their own answers through Family Group Conferencing. In 2016, I completed a second master’s degree, this time in Psychology.
In the end, I decided to volunteer with Corpus Christie Mediation Services, and since then, I’ve mediated with hundreds of couples and families on All Issues Mediation (child arrangements, property and money). I’m certified by the Family Mediation Council (FMC) and also have my Child Inclusive Mediation (CIM) certification from the FMC. I stay up-to-date on the legal and financial ramifications of divorce by attending training sessions and seminars on the subject.
A family practitioner turned mediator, I bring a unique set of skills to the table. To help couples find their own answers, I’m influenced by the trend away from fighting and blaming.
When I’m not working or studying, I like to cook, exercise, go to art galleries, and garden. However, I cherish the time I get to spend with my loved ones, particularly my family, friends, and our whippet, Dash.
