She is interested in the individual and seeks to ensure that all voices are heard and listened to in the mediations and facilitations she is involved in. Her well-practised people handling skills, an ability to listen and quickly spot the key issues in a dispute, challenging questioning and creative thinking provide the best problem solving environment in which resolve a wide range of disputes.

  • Commercial, contract, trusts and tort
  • Employment and workplace
  • Schools and education
  • Landlord and tenant
  • Boundary and property disputes
