Position

Liz is one of the few senior mediators in the UK who specialises exclusively in workplace and employment disputes.  With a diverse background in law, executive coaching and psychotherapy, she brings a unique blend of skills to the mediation process.

Her psychotherapy and executive coaching expertise enable her to bring a high degree of sensitivity and empathy to her work, coupled with a deep understanding of organisational dynamics. She balances this with commercial pragmatism gained from over a decade’s experience as a commercial litigator in the City office of a global law firm.

She is valued by HR professionals who bring her in to handle sensitive team issues where the breakdown of key working relationships could be very damaging to the organisation.  They prize her ability to quickly and discreetly help key team members to get their working relationships back on track.

Liz qualified as mediator in 1992 – the first woman in the UK to become a CEDR Accredited Mediator, and has worked full time as a mediator since 1997.
