Welcome to HG Consulting

I help organisations in the UK and the Channel Islands to reduce conflict in the workplace through practical employment and discrimination training and the use of mediation to quickly diffuse disputes. 

I am an experienced City solicitor and former Jersey Employment Judge, and provide bespoke employment training and mediation services to help:

  • foster an inclusive working environment;
  • encourage a proactive HR approach by managers;
  • reduce conflict in the workplace, staff turnover and the risk of tribunal claims.

I offer:

  • bespoke in-house training workshops for HR professionals, managers and their teams on employment and discrimination matters;
  • workplace mediation for individual and team disputes;
  • employment mediation for cases which reach court or tribunal; and
  • investigation services for formal grievance and disciplinary matters.

What is mediation?

Mediation is a voluntary, confidential and cost-effective means of resolving conflict, both in the workplace and in court or the employment tribunal.  It is a process in which a neutral third party (the mediator) enables individuals or businesses who are in dispute to find a mutally acceptable resolution.

I provide an entirely confidential and impartial mediation service to enable employers and employees who are in dispute to find a mutually acceptable resolution and avoid disputes escalating unnecessarily.  

  • Mediation is a cost-effective means of finding a solution
  • Mediation is 100% confidential
  • Mediation is entirely voluntary
  • The mediator is entirely independent and impartial
  • Mediation removes the stress and unpredictablity of court or tribunal proceedings
  • Mediation puts the parties (rather than the court or tribunal) in control of the outcome


Mission Statement

My mission is to provide outstanding workplace training and mediation services to reduce the risk of costly and protracted tribunal proceedings
