Who am I?


I am an Accredited Mediator (SPC: January 2000), and an Accredited UKCP Psychotherapist (1994), supervisor, business coach, stress management consultant and management and leadership trainer. I work as the Senior Lecturer on a Mediation Course at the School of Psychotherapy and Counselling Psychology (SPCP), Regent’s College, London, which has trained and accredited over 1000 mediators through its courses in London, Latvia and the Channel Islands.

I worked for many years as a coach to senior staff in the public and private sectors and I am the course leader for a new course I designed in Existential Coaching, which started at The New School of Psychotherapy and Psychology, London, in 2010. I also lecture on many aspects of psychotherapy and Leadership in London and Oxford and on organizational psychology at King’s College, London.  I have recently written modules on Conflict resolution for a new MA in Creative Leadership to start April 2012 at Regent’s College, London.

In this video Monica explains the importance of not holding on to a problem but seeking support to explore and resolve it.

I draw on over 20 years experience as a Senior Manager, strategist and policy maker, with a team of over 500 working to me and managing a budget of over £15million. Many of these years have been in the public sector during times of modernisation and restructuring during which I coached individual senior managers and staff and teams enabling them to deal creatively with change.

I am a highly experienced mediator, coach, trainer and lecturer and have mediated in a wide variety of disputes involving Commercial, Employment and Workplace disputes, Family conflicts, disputes between young people, including gangs, as well as Restorative Justice work with victims and perpetrators of crime. I work with global corporate companies as a consultant and coach in leadership skills and conflict management.

I have lectured and given presentations on Coaching, Management skills, Conflict, Restorative Justice and Mediation, at conferences in the UK and Latvia, to legal and business institutions, as well as to Government and Educational organisations. I  researched the potential for the teaching of conflict resolution skills in the schools and community in order to enhance the Government’s wellbeing agenda and intend to publish this work in 2012. I am working on a book on Co-Mediation and one on ‘Why People say No’ and have co-edited a book on Existential Coaching which is due for publication by Palgrave/MacMillan Spring 2012.
For the past three years I have been Co-Director of my own Mediation, Coaching and Training company (The CH Group - comprising of Community Harmony and Corporate Harmony Limited). The company provides mediation to a diverse client group and holds contracts for providing mediation to some global EAP companies.
