Jacky Gregory FMCA, Family Mediator and Retired Judge.

Since training as a mediator in 1998, Jacky Gregory has acquired a wealth of experience mediating all issues arising on relationship breakdown, including arrangements for children, financial issues, and consulting with children to ascertain their wishes and feelings.

Jacky's background is as a solicitor. She ran her own legal practice in Stockport for over 20 years, latterly specialising in family law, but left private practice in 2003 to enable her to focus on family mediation and her part–time judicial role.

She has undertaken extensive training since 1998 in relation to family mediation practice, including areas of child psychology and child consultation.  She has also undertaken training and acquired much experience in relation to her judicial role, which includes deciding cases in relation to children and family finances.

Having experience of family law issues from three different perspectives – advocate, judge and mediator - Jacky is passionate about mediation and dispute resolution as the best way forward for most people to resolve issues arising on separation, especially where there are children.  She has a real understanding of the stresses and emotional issues which arise on separation, and seeks to reduce upset for couples and their children by creating a safe and comfortable environment in mediation.

Jacky works to the code of practice accepted by the Family Mediation Council.   She is accredited by the Family Mediators Association and Family Mediation Council, and is a member of the Mediation Northwest group.

She also works as an evaluator (quasi judge) in private Financial Dispute Resolution meetings, helping clients to settle matters with their solicitors in a more formal setting - making use of her 21 years of experience as a judge and mediator.
