When You Need To Talk To Someone

I have recently volunteered to act as one of the members of the friends panel for the Arbitrators and Mediators Institute of New Zealand. The link for this is here

The purpose of the panel is really to enable our members to have someone to talk to on a confidential basis. It is a form of professional support, and we are there to listen. Sadly, some of our members find it difficult to find someone to talk to, and this can lead to problems with those difficult files or personal issues.

I am humbled that I have been chosen to be part of the members of the panel. As a mediator I strive for empathy, and this will continue as a friend on the panel. I hope that any of our members can feel free to contact me just to talk, perhaps have a quiet coffee and I will be there to listen.
