Kate Hanks

Trainee Mediator

family mediator - conflict resolution

Kate joined Mediation First as a trainee mediator in 2022 after working in the hospitality sector and is currently a Law undergraduate at the University of Law. Her change of career was prompted by her desire to help people negotiate though their difficult situations in order to achieve better outcomes. Kate has decided to pursue a career in mediation rather than as a solicitor because she strongly believes that mediation offers individuals more opportunity to have constructive conversations and therefore greater control over the process of reaching fair and lasting arrangements.
