Practice Areas

Based in Brisbane but also with a deep seated connection with communities in the Tweed Valley of Far Northern NSW, I combine my life skills with 30+ years of extensive work history in Education, Psychology and Training to my insight as a mediator.

My quest to become a mediator began some years ago, brought on by the increase of people feeling overwhelmed with life matters, stress and harm caused by conflict. Furthermore, the Covid-19 pandemic worsened peoples’ feelings of well-being, marring their for hope in the future.

I became a volunteer mediator with ICDRS as a not-for profit organisation to reach out to those not only in conflict but experiencing financial hardship. Additionally, it is extremely valuable for me working with the supportive team of volunteer mediators and our developed model of co-mediation: two mediators facilitating each mediation to provide the best possible outcomes for the parties.   

My areas for mediation practice include:

  • Organisations
  • Communities
  • Relationships
  • Workplace
  • Neighbourhood disputes

My approach

I practice inclusion and equity for all with an understanding of diversity within communities and the challenges that confront those in conflict.

The mediation process allows me as a practitioner to assist people who have otherwise not been able to resolve conflict. Providing a safe and supportive environment enables the opening of peoples resistance to having respectful conversations. In turn, this brings about communication that becomes future focused with optimism in sight.
