I am an accredited family mediator and member of the Family Mediators Association with over 15 years experience working as a family solicitor and more recently as a family mediator.
I qualified as a solicitor in 2003 and have extensive experience in the resolution of family disputes between couples, parents and grandparents in relation to divorce, children, financial and domestic violence cases.
I have always been committed to a constructive and non confrontational approach to family disputes and this lead me to train as a family mediator in 2010. I see mediation as a more positive and creative alternative to litigation in the Court system.
In particular I feel strongly that the negative effects of separation and divorce on children are limited wherever possible.
