Ros Yates

I'm a New Zealander who has worked in or for both the public and private sectors, in my home country, Australia and here in the UK. My experience and skills have been developed through successfully managing the changes of employment, home and culture that these moves entail.

All of my qualifications and training have focussed on people and how they work, communicate and deal with situations. A degree (Political Science/Anthropology), training in Conflict Resolution (UN Conflict Resolution Network), the use of the Myers Briggs Type Indicator and recent training in Mediation underline my own belief in ongoing personal and professional development. I am a member of BASRT and the Professional Mediation Association and am supervised in line with BACP requirements.

Using an integrative approach, I work one-to-one and with groups, to build skills, knowledge and confidence. Specific areas include: design and delivery of programmes to underpin change in organisations, all aspects of internal or external redeployment; facilitation of meetings and workshops (focus groups, project planning, programme design). Additionally I work for Relate as a Couple Counsellor and Psychotherapist.


"Thank you for your help; I am sure that without it I wouldn't be where I am now, both mentally and work wise. I can now see that I have learnt a lot about myself, things I didn't know and things I didn't believe could be me. I no longer feel isolated and unsupported."
Senior Police Officer

"In an organisational setting that is fast pace and fairly hectic, it was really useful to sit down and discuss and reflect on my own practice with someone who could facilitate this in an effective way."
Executive Director

"The Yellow Palette provides the guidance to help individuals think constructively about themselves and focus on key personal development areas outside the constraints of the office. People are our most valuable asset and the results have been worth the investment."
Executive Director

"Well you never said it would be easy - it wasn't, but I am now very much looking forward to the new challenge at ABC plc and beyond. Last year has really proven to be a watershed year for me. Thank you very much for guiding me through the low points and opening my mind and eyes to my own potential."
