I am a chartered quantity surveyor having been in practice as quantity surveyor and project manager for over 40 years. Since accreditation in 2009 I have mediated a number of disputes mainly in the construction and property sectors. My mediation style is to try to keep the parties as relaxed as possible whilst quickly getting to the main areas of contention. I like to keep proceedings reasonably informal but nonetheless business-like.
I also carry out mediations for children and young people with Special Educational Needs and act as a volunteer facilitator in Restorative Justice.
I have been married for 42 years with 2 grown-up sons and a lovely granddaughter (who I never spoil -honest!).
Date accredited : 2009
