Summary

  • Are you feeling stuck in a tense situation?

 

  • Are you in the middle of a disagreement or difficult situation that is taking up way too much of your time and head space?

 

  • Are you looking for training that will really transform your working relationships?

 

  • Or are you part of a board, governing body or team that needs to have some important conversations?

 

If the answer to any of these questions is 'yes' then I'd love to hear from you.

 

I love to work with people to create spaces where healing and transformation can happen. I have seen that with good communication people are able to resolve their own problems and find solutions that last. 

 

I believe in the power of training to equip people with lifelong skills that will transform their relationships with others.

 

And I know that excellent facilitation can mean the difference between a frustrating meeting and a highly productive one.

 

Please get in touch if you'd like to find out more about how I work.


Experience

  • Peacebuilders

    Director
    2009 - Current

    I founded Peacebuilders in 2009 because I am passionate about enabling people to work together well by supporting them through crises and conflicts. I have seen that disagreements can be opportunities for change, growth and breakthrough.

     

    I have mediated in conflicts across the public, private and voluntary sectors, as well as working with couples and families in crisis. I have a high success rate in mediating disputes, including preventing disputes from reaching employment tribunals. I am keen to raise the profile of mediation as a key form of alternative dispute resolution. As a mediator, I would love to work with you to ensure you are listened to and can transform your situation.

     

    As an independent consultant, I have over fifteen years of training practice and have developed and delivered accredited mediation training courses, as well as lecturing on conflict resolution at University level. I have worked to support larger organisations to set up in-house mediation schemes.

     

    I have also worked with schools to set up whole school peer mediation schemes and was lead author for the Primary Playground Buddies Toolkit, a resource for primary schools.
