Our Manchester Mediators
Accreditation: LLB (Hons), LLM, FMCT
Membership: Family Mediation Council, College of Mediators
Background: I have a law degree from the University of Wales, Swansea and a Masters Degree in Child Law. After completing my training contract in Cardiff, I decided to specialise in family law. I practised as a solicitor for 8 years, representing clients in public and private law proceedings.
After a move to Surrey and a career break to have my two children, I trained as a Family Mediator with National Family Mediation.
2. My favourite thing to do is to meet my friends for a coffee….and a pastry.
3. I have very bad taste in television and watch terrible reality TV. Don’t judge me.
4. I have two beautiful daughters who keep me on my toes.
5. I met my husband at Law School. He is a lawyer too but to this day, I don’t understand his job. At all.
Membership: College of Mediators CILEX
Background: I worked at Sainsburys, from checkouts to HR to Legal Assistant in Head Office. It made me quickly realise I wanted to work with families and not in a corporate environment.
After studying law I worked in a Child Contact Centre, which also offered mediation. I completed the NFM training course and continued my training with Mediate UK.
After discussing other options, family mediation took to my liking immediately. It is affordable and amicable for the clients and it is rewarding and fulfilling for the mediator.”
I love seeing the relief in clients’ faces when they have reached an agreement. They often come to meetings believing that nothing will be agreed, and it will all be a waste of time – there is nothing I love more than proving people wrong!”
Mediate UK offers opportunities that are not available elsewhere to trainee mediators. They genuinely want you to be the best mediator you can be and do not hold back on helping you to achieve just that.”
2. I am passionate about mental health wellbeing.
3. I am obsessed with Disney and insist that everyone in my household shares my obsession.
4. My nickname is Taz – due to my temper tantrums as a toddler resembling the cartoon character Taz, The Tasmanian Devil…
5. I have two wonderful daughters, who thankfully do not resemble the Tasmanian Devil.
