A Nationally Accredited Mediator, David strongly advocates that people going through conflict should have the opportunity to resolve disputes through a process of mutual negotiation.

One of the benefits of this approach is that each party has ownership of the common ground reached – rather than a third party passing judgement on, or forcing a solution on, their situation.

David has an extensive educational, business and community-focused background. He uses this mediation expertiseto bring a functional and balanced approach to resolving disputes. David successfully held the tender for the position of contracted mediator for Port Stephens Council from 2009 to June 2012, and he also provides in-service on – and oversees the implementation of – Workplace Dispute Policies and Processes.

David runs business seminars on topics like ‘Dealing With Difficult People in the Workplace’ for a range of government and private workplaces.

David’s skills in facilitating positive relationships extend to the Family Dispute Resolution process where he helps people put in place intervention and support structures to resolve family conflict.

Some of David’s core qualities of empathy, compassion and care make him a successful Dispute Resolution Practitioner. He brings his vast experience, his deep understanding of the personal journey of others, and his balanced perspective to each and every person and situation he works with.
