Meet our new Consultant Gill Wright

All about Gill

Hello, I’m Gill and I have joined Family Mediation and Mentoring as a consultant mediator having retired from full time legal work with over 30 years of experience as a family law solicitor and mediator.

My experience working with families and personally being part of a large “blended” family, influences my dedication to help families to work out their own pathway through separation to reach solutions and create hope for the future.

As a Mum of three, a Step-Mum of three and a Nanny to seven wonderful grandchildren, my family is most important to me. It is a privilege to be able to share in the good times and tough times with all of them. The journey has at times been challenging for all of us, but the joy of all being able to share family occasions is immeasurable and at the beginning of our journey unimaginable.

Family life and work is hectic and full on, so I also enjoy time to myself walking with my dog (who my children say I love more than them!), pottering in my greenhouse and garden, and reading, preferably in a sunny spot with a glass of wine.

I also enjoy an adventure. My highlights have been walking Hadrian's Wall and trekking the Inca trail to Machu Picchu. I have a souvenir from Peru that I keep close when faced with a challenge or feeling over whelmed to remind me that I can do it and it will be worth it.

It is exciting to have the opportunity to be working with Claire and Rachael to facilitate solutions for children and families experiencing separation and divorce.  I am looking forward to this next chapter and my next adventure...

If you would like to contact me then call me on 07591203243 or email me at Gill@familymandm.co.uk.
