I’m Bec, the Everyday Mediator, and I love conflict! I love untangling the threads that cause conflict and working with you to find solutions that really work for your particular situation. It’s like a puzzle that needs solving, and I can see all of the pieces.
I used to be a lawyer, but I feel much better now. For more than 12 years I worked as a litigation lawyer, representing clients from the Commissioner of Taxation to “mum and dad investors”. My clients were often stuck on a merry-go-round of lawyers, courts and expert reports and many felt powerless to control what was happening in their case.
Unlike litigation, mediation gives you control over your dispute. Finally, here was something I could do to help relieve the tension my clients felt during litigation. In 2013 I left my secure corporate role to study and qualify as a Nationally Accredited Mediator.
Based in Melbourne, Australia, I now work with managers and business owners to eliminate the angst and bewilderment from conflict and replace it with calm confidence and resolution strategies.
I can’t promise you a Happily Ever After, but I can promise you a safe space in which to share your experience and explore options to resolve the conflict.
