About Us

I help you resolve your family and workplace disputes in the best way possible. Simple as that.

BMW photo August 2013I am committed to helping you live a life free from stress, overwhelm, frustration and debilitating disputes.

My name is Bernadette Willems. In 2010 I left my Cheshire legal practice of over 20 years to found  Greater Manchester Mediation Limited, serving people throughout the UK,  particularly the North West, Greater Manchester, Stockport and Cheshire and I am quick to respond to your needs.

I want to free you from the anxiety and burden of a personal or workplace relationship which is not working well. I help resolve any relationship, family, separation or divorce issues. I do that in a way which gives you much more than a solution to the presenting problem. I provide you with life-enhancing tools and skills which mean you can look forward to a more settled and peaceful life, knowing you have the skills to enable you to manage any future interpersonal conflict.

Your Divorce Made Simple

If your relationship is on the verge of ending up in divorce or separation, or if you have already separated and struggle to agree how to parent your children  or resolve financial matters between you, I am here to help you.

I am passionate about being able to make a difference in how people choose to communicate with each other ensuring that vulnerable and emotionally fragile clients feel heard and empowered. I am very driven to help people function at their best and find and utilise their natural skills for the benefit of the people around them. My motivation is to help people lead a better life and live a brighter future free from debilitating disputes thereby helping to create a better world for all of us.

I help people cope better with the changes and challenges that occur in life and relationships.

A journey from litigation solicitor to Business Peacemaker has been an exciting adventure over the last two decades and testimony to the fact that discovering and harnessing your own personal natural talent enables you to spend your time doing things you love which then does not feel like work! With a mission to “inspire you to find the best within yourself in order to give the best of yourself”, for Bernadette, it’s always been about empowering people to discover their own natural resources, reach their full potential and support others to do the same.

I know what it’s like to wilt under the weight of a stressful, demanding job and my passion is to help provide clear direction and results for hundreds of clients in all different industries. I’m constantly striving to learn, grow, and express my highest talents in the world to help professionals succeed with confidence and joy.  I’m doing work that’s true for me…and based on the results my clients achieve, they are very happy with the results achieved!

If you’re looking for clear direction, more confidence, and a genuine expression of  YOU in your business, you’re in the right place. Bernadette has some great resources and coaching and training options for you.

Many disputes or problems between individuals, in both personal or workplace relationships, or within teams are compounded or aggravated because clients do not understand each other or each other’s way of thinking. Bernadette helps you identify ways of building or maintaining Trust, and what keeps people happy, calm and grounded doing what they naturally love to do. The resources she uses are both life and personal development tools, which are there for the clients to use beyond the coaching, mediation and training room.

The benefits of utilising a workplace mediator is recognised nationally. Companies understand this helps them avoid expensive litigation, tribunals, publicity and inefficient use of HR staff. Employees have the opportunity to speak about any concerns they have without the fear that it will compromise their position in the organisation. We have found that early intervention in workplace disputes often stops the exodus of valuable employees.
