Claire Kearney’s interest in Elder Mediation is driven by the value and impact it
can have not only on the person themselves, but on the entire family as a family
unit. As a Mediator and Psychotherapist, she strongly believes and has seen first
hand how Elder Mediation can contribute to the continuum of care in the lives of
the families involved. Family life is demanding and complicated and needs to be seen
through the lenses of the entire family cycle, from childhood, to adult life, parenting,
family communication, sandwich generation, relationship breakdowns, and ageing.
Her 20 years’ experience as a business owner and manager, coupled with 11 years as
a practising Psychotherapist and Mediator gives her unique insights into a wide
range of economic, domestic and family circumstances.
Claire is a Practitioner Member of the MII and former MII Director and Family Liaison.
She is an international accredited Elder Mediator, a member of NAPCP with a Diploma
in Psychotherapy and Counselling, a Diploma in Life and Business Coaching and is
an Accredited Mediator Supervisor. She is a guest lecturer in Advanced Family Mediation
on the Master’s Programme in Conflict Resolution in Maynooth University.
