Fiona is a Civil and Commercial Mediator who favours the facilitative model of mediation practice. Taking a party centred focus to dispute resolution, she believes that when a party is actively involved in deciding the terms of the agreement, it is more likely to be successful in the future as well as in the mediation session.
Fiona’s background in education makes her ideally placed to mediate in educational disputes. Having worked in a busy secondary school, she understands the challenges that young people, parents/carers and staff face.
Fiona prides herself on offering a comprehensive yet flexible mediation style, keeping the party at the centre of the dispute. This approach leads not just to a high settlement rate, but a high level of satisfaction from the parties.
Fiona is available for appointment in Civil matters as lead mediator across the North West of England.
