As a professional mediator my goal is always to help people in a dispute find their own best possible solutions. A facilitator and reflector, a way finder and possibilitarian. I help clients in crises, conflicts and transitions to figure out their best interests for the immediate and the long term. “Conflict is an event, not a lifestyle.”
I respect every person and their situation as unique and work with clients’ circumstances as they are. For me, qualities are more important than qualifications - though I have plenty of those.
A fully insured, MII qualified mediator with Trauma Awareness & Resistance training, and advanced specialist in Comprehensive, All-Issues Family and Separating Couples, I currently work with the Irish Legal Aid Board’s Family Mediation Services in Dublin. I hold a diploma from U.C.D in Mediation and Conflict and Dispute Resolution. During 2020/21 I was a Covid Mediator for Community Law and Mediation and regularly mediate remotely online. Experienced in translator assisted, intercultural mediations, and drafting agreements for both non legal and legal Court Ruled Settlements.
Whatever the issue, whether conflict circumstances, or strategic constructive meetings, I can assist you successfully communicate and negotiate towards collaborative options, solutions and outcomes.
As a middle child of a large family I was never a stranger to multi party stakeholders all trying to have their needs met! I was always the peacemaker and the person people came to for a non judgmental, listening ear. A yogi, a former journalist/broadcaster and a successful founder of an independent business. I know, first hand, how a problem shared is a problem halved and the principle of discourse “hear both sides” is sacred to me.
I’m a strategist, doer and project manager, a communicator, active listener and open minded questioner. Neutral but not passive. Disputes feel difficult. It can be hard to be clear-eyed when we’re in distress and to hold a calm and creative conversation with parties you are in disagreement with.
Mostly, people need someone to listen, another pair of eyes and ears, neutral ones, that have no skin the game. As a mediator I can hear what the parties often can’t, and ask questions they often won’t, to enable them to make better choices for the best outcomes.
For me it is a privilege to listen to and help people. I’m interested in all areas of mediation and dispute resolution. Mediation is an alternative, proactive and holistic way to resolve disputes that saves everyone time, money and heartache and I look forward to helping you.

Field of Mediation: Commercial
During the past 23 years working as a social entrepreneur I built up (together with my business partners) a collective of 22 companies with a common denominator: Powered by Meaning Group. We believe that the world cannot live without entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurship for coming up with solutions for tomorrow's problems. Furthermore I am appointed growth mentor at "NL Groeit" for scale ups in The Netherlands.
By working in this entrepreneurial environment, I learned the importance of mediation. The importance of understanding the multi-stakeholder beliefs, specific and common needs and interests. I have a wide experience with intra- and interorganizational collaborations (start-ups, scale ups and corporates and governmental organizations)
I’m a father of three children (10, 12 and 16 years old) and I am married to Sarah. Sarah runs a beautiful business called De Groeistudio to make sure that young professionals are capable to deal with stress and burn out challenges.
During my career as an entrepreneur in many situations I worked as a dealmaker or mediator (though I didn't know at that time that I was actually performing a mediation process. In the past 23 year years I had to experience 2 lawsuits and in both cases it was a very disappointing process and with disappointing results for all parties involved. Therefore I was looking for alternative ways to resolve disputes.
I will be able to help clients the best in commercial mediations. Conflicts between start ups, scale ups, corporates and/or governments. Also conflicts between private equity and ventures. Or in conflicts between shareholders. In a wide variety of sectors.
