Here’s what some of my clients have to say…
“We were two warring ex-partners, who couldn’t reach a decision without falling out. Anna was very friendly, open and honest, which helped open the dialogue between us. We both had ample opportunity to express our opinions and mediation gave us a different perspective.Once, we had an agreement in place it meant we could both move on. Communication is better and our children both seem happier now that they know what’s happening and when”
“I thought mediation would have been impossible, but thanks to Anna it was a very different outcome! As parents we were able to set aside our differences and focus on what’s best for the kids. Anna helped us to achieve a better co-parenting relationship and communication between us has definitely improved. I would recommend trying this to anyone!”
“After a long separation I’m sad that this route wasn’t tried years ago. Perhaps it would have helped resolve some long protracted issues a lot sooner and save us a lot of money”
“Anna was very professional, very thoughtful, and very skilled. She gave me the opportunity to share where I was at and to express my views and wishes during the process. She was particularly sensitive and thoughtful regarding some difficult circumstances. Anna provided a safe space to have a difficult discussion with a skilled mediator. I would just say again, thank you!”
🌊 When I’m not in the mediation space…
I love spending time with family, friends, books and my garden. I avidly follow Emmerdale and love the great outdoors, especially the sea.
