A Guide to Effective Communication for Conflict Resolution introduces the 9 Principles that are also described on this site to help the reader develop a 'mindfulness' in relation to their communication in a way that supports the resolution of conflict. In this book
Alan shares his observations and learnings from working as a Mediator and Conflict Coach with regard to the ways that people become stuck in unresolved conflict but also how they go on to create more effective ways forward in their difficult situations.
"I think you put together so well all the essential components of
conflict transformation in a way which people can relate to and
understand. A brilliant book and I will recommend it to everyone."
Jo Berry - BuildingBridgesForPeace.org
Conflict Coaching is a 1-to-1 service available in person with the coach or via Skype, FaceTime, Google hangout or other online format.
"All the time we wait for others to change, we remain frustrated, outraged, stressed, depressed - and we render ourselves powerless. Conflict Coaching offers people the opportunity to question and possibly change their responses to, or their views and beliefs about a situation. This is not to remain 'passive' in the face of unacceptable behaviour, it is to find a way of supporting ourselves first in order that we can respond more effectively to the behaviour we find unacceptable or to find a different way of seeing the situation if we feel unable to do anything to change it. Through creating different responses or perspectives we give ourselves a choice, and having choices, created by ourselves, leads to empowerment." - from : 'What is Conflict Coaching?

A meeting will usually be for 1½ hours, and it is likely that a client will have between 1 and 3 conflict coaching sessions regarding a particular situation.
The main aim will be to ensure that sessions always support empowerment of you, the client, to be able to deal with your situation more effectively, thus making continued sessions less and less necessary.

It is important to emphasise that Conflict Coaching is not a form of therapy or counselling.
Its purpose is to enable you to reflect on your difficult situation, and your responses to it, in order to help you create different ways of responding that support you in dealing with it more constructively and more effectively.
How much does it cost?
The cost of one session in person (see below for cost via Skype) is presently £90 per hour plus any room booking fee, and sessions are usually 1½ hours. If you wish to provide your own room or meet somewhere which is free, such as a park or other public space, then just the session charge will apply, however I will need to add an element of travel cost if you are some distance away from me.
