Faith Sensitive Mediation

For Organisations & Individuals.

We sometimes have special concerns and priorities that others find difficult to understand.

Some disputes have a religious / faith dimension.  There are matters that are really important to one or both of the participants, where it may be difficult to explain their significance.


These might concern relationships, religious practice, taboos, priorities, inheritance or education.  Sometimes it feels awkward to discuss them, particularly where you feel that secular lawyers will not give them appropriate gravity or sensitivity.


Faith related tensions, whether within or between faiths, can be the hardest and most emotionally draining to endure.

This is an area dear to my heart, one where I have particular expertise.





I have over 30 years experience working within faith communities, with Halacha, Sharia and Ecclesiastical concerns.

  • I have been a congregational rabbi and pastor, worked with major faith organisations and schools.  In Sydney, Australia, I worked with the Beth Din (religious court) and set up the Jewish Arbitration and Mediation Service (JAMS).
  • I am currently a member of the Canary Wharf MultiFaith Chaplaincy.
  • In Australia, I was a part of the State-funded Australian National Dialogue of Christians, Jews & Moslems.
  • In New Zealand, I was one of the founders of the Auckland Interfaith Council.
  • I am a former Vice President of the New South Wales CCJ, speaker at the Parliament of World Religions, participant in KAICIID and worked with the Archdiocese of Sydney on the visit of Pope Benedict to Sydney in 2011.

All mediators leave their values outside the room and are non-judgmental in facilitating their conversations.  But the conversation can be much more fluid and the dialogue more constructive, when the mediator understands your priorities, fears and concerns.  This can also help frame constructive and faith-compliant resolutions.


Whether you are an organisation, charity, school, family or individual, I can bring unique experience in facilitating the conversation towards resolution.
