"I am a CMC registered mediator (civil/commercial) and received my accreditation from Regent's University, London. I also have experience of community mediation having trained and practiced with Bristol Mediation.

As a researcher and analyst of mediation, conflict and disputes for many years, I am a committed advocate for the power of genuine dialogue to unlock even the most intractable of disputes. My mediation approach is friendly and welcoming. I bring a straight forward, empathetic and calming influence to any dispute situation.  

I bring the rigour and analysis of an academic researcher alongside an ability to listen and engage with people across cultures and circumstance. I have developed the discernment and sensitivity to create safe and held spaces, whatever the dispute, whatever the setting.

You can book me for a mediation via ADR-ODR International, the Mediator Network or by contacting me direct ( or though the form below). Please do get in touch for a no obligation conversation about what you need.

I am also an accredited trainer working with ADR-ODR International to help deliver their Civil-Commercial Mediation Training course.

I love to connect - bridging disciplines, perspectives and specialities. I have worked across law, politics, development, humanitarian and peacebuilding sectors, and with activists, lawmakers, policymakers, community members and leaders, business, academics and government officials. I am equally comfortable working in the UK, Europe, Africa, and North America; from board rooms, the UN and online, to remote villages, conflict situations, community space, and family homes.

My belief is that mediation offers the parties the chance to understand their position, to seek solutions and to walk away having explored every possibility open to them."
