I am a family solicitor with over 10 years’ experience of all aspects of Family Law. My passion for Family Mediation was first ignited during my many years in London at a top tier firm. As soon as I could, I completed my own Family Mediation course and although I have not chosen to follow that path in my day to day work, I am passionate about resolving disputes in this more constructive way wherever possible and in circumstances where it is safe to do so.
I am excited to be working with a fantastic group of mediators and will do my utmost to ensure that the agreement reached between you in the mediation process is not unravelled, but is instead finalised and concluded in a constructive and collaborative way.
I honestly feel that we now have a good chance of proceeding in an amicable way that hopefully in time will become a friendship with the children at its core. I do not think we would have achieved this through solicitors, and feel huge gratitude for your patience and gentleness.
It’s so much better to go through this process together in a calm and neutral setting, rather than being defensive at home or seeing a solicitor individually. You’ve been a great adviser on a tricky topic and the meetings were really productive.
Throughout this whole horrible process we have both felt that the system is designed to leave us hating each other and to have had your support in helping us get to this point has meant a great deal, so thank you for your support of us both and for reflecting everything so well.
Thank you for all you have done to make a very sad and painful process somewhat less painful!
Thanks for all your help. We are talking a lot more and generally getting on much better, we even stood next to each other at rugby AND are going to parents’ evening together!
You did more in 4 hours than our lawyers had done in 1 year. For that I am very grateful.
I would like to thank you for the time you have spent in achieving in 4 hours, what we never achieved in 4 months. I think it is by far a much better process than solicitors and court.
