Background: From an early age I was a manager in the Leisure and Hospitality industry working with people and potential conflict on a daily basis.
I then had the opportunity to train as driving instructor and, after a number of years and a number of near misses, I managed to get a lot of people safely through their driving test. I enjoyed being a driving instructor as I was changing people’s lives and giving them a skill for life.
Before training as a Family Mediator in Bolton, I trained as a Civil and Commercial Mediator conducting Neighbour and Contract disputes.
For example, they wanted drug tests and a criminal record check on the new partner. But they did not want the same done on their new partner. It was difficult to balance that request, but in the end they did reach an agreement with a phased reintroduction to the other parent.”
The Managing Director, Ali is very generous and is always looking to set up links with local charities and support local organisations or events. I have to say his jokes are very bad though!”
2. Keen Bolton Wanderers Fan (someone has to be)
3. Played in a Football tournament on Sky Sports at England`s Training Ground.
4. I had the initials JLS before the band, which was also the name of my driving school.
5. I learnt basic Makaton sign language to help communicate with my son who is non-verbal.
