All CAOS-Accredited Conflict Coaches will have attended our 4-day training course and then continue to review and improve their practice via attendance at the ongoing Support and Development sessions we provide on a monthly basis for practitioners who have trained with us.
The CAOS Model of Conflict Coaching was developed in 2008 and has been used effectively in a range of different areas of practice since its creation. At the time, Alan Sharland, now Director of CAOS Conflict Management was Director of a community mediation service in West London.
Together with colleagues he pioneered the development of Conflict Coaching in the UK, providing the first publicly available service in London in 2008 and established the first Conflict Coaching service in a UK university at Brunel University in 2011.

All such situations and others can be assisted via Conflict Coaching. If you are looking for a CAOS-Accredited Conflict Coach in your area, please see the list below.
Melloney is based in Greater Manchester and covers the North West of England.
Melloney has over 10 years’ experience as an Employment Solicitor and currently works with businesses and individuals to resolve workplace disputes as a Solicitor, HR Consultant, Workplace Mediator and CAOS-Accredited Conflict Coach.
Her experience as a Solicitor and HR Consultant has exposed Melloney to the myriad of conflict situations that arise between people at work at all levels. She understands and appreciates that often a business’s employment procedures do not or cannot resolve workplace conflict satisfactorily and can sometimes make things worse.
Melloney’s philosophy in life and business is to facilitate a return to harmony in conflict situations and to build bridges rather than destroy them. This desire led her to train as a conflict coach with CAOS in order to provide an alternative route to clients who wish to resolve workplace conflict.
