- Separating Couples - 2022, the Mediation Institute of Ireland (MII)
European Mediation Training - 2022, International Mediation Institute (IMI) 2022.
- Most recently, I have been awarded a certificate in Conflict Management Coaching (Cinergy Model) 2023
- I also hold a degree in Fine Art, Sculpture and a Post Graduate in Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Enterprise.
- I am presently involved in two Mediation Community Groups providing voluntary mediation service to help to those in need.
With my three qualifications in mediation, along with my training in conflict management coaching and my extensive years of dealing with the public, I hope to help you in your time of need for change. As the saying goes; ‘A problem shared, is a problem halved’.
Through mediation and my experience, I want to ease your part of the problem and help you to find resolve by taking you from feeling stuck and at stalemate, to open dialogue and the possibility of a positive future.

Field of Mediation: Community, Family, Intercultural, Labor, School
I am a social educator, mediator and disciple of restorative practices. I worked for five years in an alternative high school and for a further four years in a child-welfare center as a school social worker, managing and delivering activities on a wide range of topics including team-building, anti-bullying, promoting cooperation, assertive communication and problem-solving, as well as working on conflict resolution and various community projects. I also provided training to teachers and consultancy for parents and teachers. I was voted leader of the employees’ committee, in a mediator-advocacy capacity.
Besides, I was involved in various projects in prisons and community centers.
I’ve arrived at mediation through my professional development. I specialized in the field of experiential education, focusing on group dynamics and developing social skills through interactions, by creating an environment around my clients in which I facilitate the process and let the participants make their choices. This essentially has the same approach as mediation. The underlying value of self-determination is of fundamental importance to me. My mission is to empower individuals, partnerships, organizations and communities to be able to make their own decisions with respect to each stakeholder.
I am open to all kinds of mediation with community, workplace, school, family and intercultural cases as my specialty.
