Suzanne is an experienced mediator, who is passionate about the value of mediation offering individuals a safe space to talk to each other openly, honestly, with respect and dignity with the aim of resolving workplace conflicts where relationships have become fragmented through misunderstandings, break downs in trust or a miscommunication.
Suzanne came to mediation after working many years as a Human Resources Director working in a variety of sectors both in the UK and Internationally. During her career, Suzanne became increasingly frustrated with the way that formal processes such as disciplinary and grievance procedures negatively impacted working relationships, and productivity. Suzanne trained as a mediator with the TCM group and attained the National Certificate in Workplace Mediation in 2009.
Since then, Suzanne has undertaken numerous business related mediations typically arising from a breakdown in communications or understanding. Being passionate about the positive impact that mediation can have in a workplace, Suzanne has run several workshops to advise and inform HR professionals about the opportunity and benefits of mediation, as well as having written several small articles. In addition Suzanne is a voluntary mediator with the North Devon Community Mediation group.
A Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development [FCIPD] and a Member the Civic Mediation Council, Suzanne has been a TCM Group Associate since 2013.
