Mediation & Conflict Coaching
I am a CEDR-Accredited Mediator qualified to undertake employment, workplace, commercial, civil and community mediation. I work as an independent consultant specialising in dialogue facilitation, conflict resolution and partnership-building. My business development experience, studies in educational leadership and experience in dispute resolution combine effectively to allow me to support organisations, employees, families and individuals in finding win-win resolutions within complex scenarios.
I have 20 years experience working in a strategic capacity for public, private and third sector organisations in the UK and overseas, and I have specialist consulting experience in the fields of sustainability, education and health/social care. I have also taught and managed at secondary level internationally and in the independent sector in the UK, and founded/directed a theatre company devoted to promoting the understanding of mental health and social exclusion.
I am a CEDR-Accredited Mediator, qualifying in 2017, and an Associate with the Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution (CEDR) as part of their world-renowned training faculty.
“Arabella brings integrity to her every interaction. She communicates with centred grace, allowing each person to feel heard - their perspective acknowledged, their feelings validated. Her genuine and open manner reassures; her astute observations of an individual's unique qualities inspire. It is always a very great pleasure to work with Arabella.” (R. Burton, Magistrate)
