Are you caught up in a complicated and emotionally charged dispute? 

Do you want to avoid the conflict, stress and expense of going to court?

If you answered ‘yes’ to these questions, you will need a skilled, friendly and commercially astute mediator who is experienced at managing difficult situations or personalities.

I bring 30 years of experience as a practicing psychologist to my mediation, to help you to resolve your dispute. I am also an experienced expert witness who is familiar with the law and working with lawyers.  I am a graduate of the Oxford Programme on Negotiation (Saïd Business School)  and have taught negotiation both in the UK and overseas (Moscow and Vilnius).

We will work together to find a resolution to your dispute. I will  help by, first of all, getting everyone talking again.  When this happens, people are much more able to think creatively about possible options, ways forward and and the consequences of failing to reach a resolution. 

Mediation is a golden opportunity to avoid costly, acrimonious and stressful court proceedings.
