After studying psychology and philosophy at Auckland University, I travelled the world for three years and came back determined to build a meditation centre, so I became a builder and after completing the meditation centre went on building for another 20 years.
People started wanting to pay me for advice, so I joined the New Zealand Institute of Building Surveyors and served on their Executive for many years. In 2016 they made me a life member and gave me their “Excellence in Building Surveying” award in 2018.
About 10 years ago, I restarted formal study and subsequently received a Graduate Diploma in Dispute Resolution from Massey University. Since then, I have completed Cinnie Noble’s excellent Conflict Management Coaching course as well as a Graduate Certificate in Restorative Justice from Victoria University in Wellington.
I regularly attend short courses and continue to upskill, for example in Elder Mediation. I have been a Family Mediator with Fairway since 2014.
My particular interest is in supporting families to figure things out themselves.
