I am ever so grateful to Janeen for her professional and friendly approach for our recent mediation that, thanks to her, was run smoothly and amicably and was above my expectation. This was the first time I needed mediation which I have always been sceptical about. However, my recent experience with Janeen proved me wrong and I highly recommend her for mediation. Janeen showed a very constructive, realistic and thorough approach, I felt at ease and understood every step on the way to achieve a mutual agreement on a divorce settlement. G.A., Leeds, 2017

Janeen is caring and sensitive to those facing conflict resolution whatever their personal or professional background. She has the ability to engender in them the confidence and insight necessary to proceed with the knowledge that Janeen's extensive scholarship and experience, with which she is very generous, readily to hand.

With a background in Law and Teaching; she has an extensive and deep interest in Mediation. Janeen is able to identify situations, which may have many varied and complex scenarios, implement the correct strategies to bring disparate individuals or groups together with the skills to achieve the secured outcomes. I cannot speak highly enough of the assistance, knowledge and skill Janeen generously affords her clients.

About Mediation Forward

Janeen Achtar

A highly motivated mediator with over 15 years of experience of teaching law with the last 5 years teaching Commercial Mediation. Experienced in informal community mediations.

«My approach to mediation is mainly facilitative. I believe in encouraging the parties to explore their interests and not become entrenched in positions. However I can also lead an evaluative mediation.»

My natural abilities, as well as psychological background, are well suited to resolving disputes successfully.

Mediation Style and Approach

I am relaxed and easily approachable with excellent knowledge of mediation theories and techniques. I am highly adaptable and not easily flustered when dealing with emotionally charged situations. As an academic, I am used to taking charge of the room, while at the same ensuring the self -determination and confidence of the participants, and winning their trust.

My academic background and training in Psychology, allows me to quickly identify and manage barriers and emotions which can present themselves in varying degrees in all mediations. Intuitively I am able to offer new perspectives and avenues to the participants which focus on the wider interest of the parties and not just the present dispute. I am keen to continue to work with parties to until a resolution is reached.
