In my 16 years in the legal profession I have found that the power of human connection underpins all that we do and say. The mediation process allows this connection to happen so that conflict, both present and future, can be resolved.
My superpower is simply allowing people to be heard without judgement. I find conflict often arises out of two people speaking but not really hearing each other. I help people listen and hear each other when they feel like they are unable to.
“We have two ears and one mouth, so we can listen twice as much as we speak.”
The families I work with have simply hit a road block in moving on after separation. I help them problem solve their way around these temporary blocks.
