His adaptive and empathetic approach to mediation and mentoring is key to his successes with hundreds of such clients across the UK.
Registered blind at the age of 21, Ryan has harnessed his own understanding of disability, and the everyday struggles it presents, to overcome barriers in his own life and to problem solving on behalf of others. Ryan is understandably passionate about supporting and empowering vulnerable people, and making sure their voices are heard.
Accredited as a mediator in civil and commercial disputes, a family mediator, disability awareness trainer, coach and mentor, his integrated, person-centered and solution-focused approach lends itself to resolving a broad range of different types of dispute.
Ryan has always been committed to the highest standards of professional practice in mediation, coaching and mentoring, as evidenced in his ongoing professional development as he looks to constantly further his skills and knowledge base.
As a co-founder of the Disability Mediation Standards Committee, Ryan plays an instrumental role in ensuring mediation practices are inclusive and accessible for people with disabilities whilst ensuring mediators are equipped and confident when disability is the area of dispute.
Ryan’s ambition to use his own experiences to help others is reflected not only in his professional life, but also in his outside commitments, where he is an advocate and campaigner for disability rights, he has been a Samaritan volunteer since 2010, as well as offering his experience and expertise to the RNIB as a member of their Working Age Customer Panel.
