In 2007, Barry attended a Resolution training course that focussed on pensions, divorce and the collaborative process, culminating in achieving an accreditation following an examination. He is one of only 102 people in the UK who hold this qualification and is also part of the ‘Linked In’ group, where he can refer questions amongst his fellow professionals to obtain views on specific cases.
Barry is the treasurer of Brightpod.
Barry is the proud father of two children, Jessica and Jasmine. When he is not spending time with his family, he is a keen cyclist and enjoys cycling both on and off road. He also enjoys kayaking on the local rivers and sea, five-a-side football, golf, gardening (which he finds very relaxing when you have a head full of figures!) and walking his dog, Trevor (named by his eldest daughter).

Gemma, I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated your role in our divorce negotiations – your and Jo O’Sullivan’s collaborative and gentle approach made things so much smoother at a very difficult time. Thank you so much.
