After a first career in television, managing teams of creative people, I started to put my problem-solving skills and natural empathy to work to help friends and colleagues resolve their financial and family issues following separation and divorce.
After observing many long drawn out and expensive court cases, I realised that mediation provides a much better outcome for separating couples in achieving the best possible arrangements for their family at at a fraction of the cost.
I completed my formal training with the Family Mediators Association and now have my own practice covering South West London. I have offices in Barnes, Putney, Wimbledon and Fulham and I can also see clients at a location of their choice.
I am also specially trained to see children directly within the mediation process if the parents feel it’s important their voices are heard.
Much of my experience has been about understanding people to help them achieve the best possible results and I use the same skills in mediation to help couples in the most challenging circumstances reach agreements they are both happy with.
I am committed to helping families resolve all kinds of issues – from high conflict financial disputes to disagreements over arrangements for children – sensitively, swiftly and affordably.
‘Many thanks to you for your time, guidance and support. I greatly appreciate it.’
‘After years of playing ping pong with solicitors, we were getting nowhere and I am so relieved that we heard about mediation. Your skill in taking the heat out of our communication was exceptional and we were finally able to focus on what was important – our children’s future. My ex-wife and I are now both on the same page and the Parenting Plan you helped us build has been invaluable’.
‘I was amazed you persuaded (my ex) to come and I think he was secretly disappointed when it ended!’
‘Mediation has given me the confidence and financial stability to focus on setting up my business and moving on with my life. Thank you for your patience and for showing us we could find a way through our financial mess.’
