“My approach to mediation is mainly facilitative. I believe in encouraging the parties to explore their interests and not become entrenched in positions. However, I can also lead and evaluative mediation
I am relaxed and easily approachable with excellent knowledge of mediation theories and techniques. I am highly adaptable and not easily flustered when dealing with emotionally charged situations. As an academic, I am used to taking charge of the room, while at the same ensuring the self -determination and confidence of the participants, and winning their trust.
My academic background and training in Psychology, allows me to quickly identify and manage barriers and emotions which can present themselves in varying degrees in all mediations. Intuitively I am able to offer new perspectives and avenues to the participants which focus on the wider interest of the parties and not just the present dispute. I am keen to continue to work with parties to until a resolution is reached.
I am quite happy to travel nationally and internationally for mediation work.
