I am the founder of Mediation In Your Pocket. I am also a mediator and partner in the Dumbarton office of McArthur Stanton Solicitors. I am accredited by the Law Society of Scotland in family mediation, convenor of CALM Scotland, member of the Family Law Association, Vice Chair of Scottish Mediation (and Chair of its Promotions Committee & Peer Mediation Working Group), and was the first lawyer mediator in Scotland to be trained in direct consultation with children in family mediation ("child inclusive mediation"). I am also a member of the Family Mediation Accreditation Panel of the Law Society of Scotland.

I am happy to accept private or legal aid referrals for all types of family mediations, including those relating to children and finances. If you have a query or wish to discuss whether family mediation would assist you or your client, please feel free to contact me.

For CALM Scotland, with Moore Legal Technology I created and manage this website, operate all social media accounts, record the #videoCALM and #audioCALM interviews you can access on the site, YouTube and iTunes, and can also design for you a quality mediation website & social media presence - click here for more. I am also advancing training and the use of online mediation for those of you who would prefer to mediate their issues online rather than in the same room, and child-inclusive mediation where that would be appropriate.

I am the author of How To Talk To Your Kids About Separation, and am in the process of writing two follow up books on my journey in mediation and on resolving issues with your ex after the separation. I also show off some dodgy #MediationMagic skills on my YouTube channel to help spread the word about how magical family mediation can be!

At the moment I am working in collaboration with state bodies and other like-minded organisations on developing a unified and more powerful voice for family mediation in Scotland. The aim is to make more universal awareness and ease of access for mediation, to spread the word about just how life-changing it can be for families after separation particularly where it's combined with parenting apart and conflict coaching. I have every faith that in the coming years our community will feel the benefit of this continued revolution in family breakdown, this repositioning of separation & divorce in the field of welfare rather than warfare.

For more on this please follow me online or get in touch, and many thanks for showing an interest in mediation!
