Nikki qualified as a lawyer in both England and Scotland and gained specialist experience in commercial litigation in top firms in London and Scotland. Nikki’s introduction to mediation was as a commercial mediator, based in London. Having seen the benefits of mediation as a means of resolving disputes, she extended her mediation skills to re-train as family mediator in 2009 and since then she has been working exclusively as a family mediator in Kent. Nikki works with clients in Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge and Sevenoaks.
Nikki has sat as a Magistrate for over 20 years and is a Court Chairman in the Adult Court and also a Court Chairman on the North Kent Family Bench. She has a wealth of experience in family matters, both in a court context and in the less acrimonious context of the mediation room.
Nikki was awarded ‘Senior Mediator’ status by the Family Mediators’ Association in 2014 and is qualified to offer Child-Inclusive Mediation. Nikki is also a Professional Practice Consultant.
