Let me tell you how to make life easier--or email me for a virtual coffee and chat.

The sooner you take action, the easier

We all say we want to address issues straightaway, however, most of us put things off with phrases like  "better the devil you know", "well, it might get better", "this isn't the right time" or "it could be a lot worse". Some things do get better, but a lot get worse. Want to know how to tell the difference? Read more

Experienced online mediator

Nancy Radford Mediator Trainer 2020 After becoming accredited as a mediator 7 years ago, I did an intensive course on how to mediate via video and telephone in 2015. This training and practical experience meant that when the pandemic started, I was ready to offer my services. Not only have I done over 150 mediations online/on the telephone, but also within a month of the first lockdown, I trained over 200 mediators how to use Zoom.  Since then, I have trained voluntary groups, community mediators and individuals to ensure that mediation is available despite coronavirus. At the National Mediation Awards in September 2020, I was honoured and delighted to be awarded the Mediator Trainer Award for 2020.

Clients are often extremely anxious, especially if they have never used technology before. I do whatever is needed to ensure that they are able to focus on the issues rather than the platform (Zoom, MS Teams or other).

Online mediation means that mediation is affordable and accessible to many people who would not have otherwise had the chance to resolve their disputes. And geography is not an issue. Last year, I did a workplace mediation in Lithuania from my office in Durham.
