  About Chris Lewis:

Chris Lewis is a retired police officer with 30 years exemplary service. She joined the police in 1986, after obtaining a 2:1 Hons Degree in Geology.

She served as a Detective Inspector for the last 20 years of her service and is extremely experienced in investigation, managing court files and court proceedings. She was also a national police negotiator for 15 years, dealing with conflict and crisis situations in a calm and measured way, negotiating successful outcomes.

Her experience in leading a public protection unit, led to extensive knowledge of child safeguarding and family law proceedings, which is directly transferable.

Since retirement, she has specialised in coaching individuals through stressful events and situations and obtained qualifications in mental health to assist well-being outcomes.

She is very pleased to be a McKenzie friend to put her skills into practice to reduce conflict and acrimony and prioritise children through stressful family proceedings.

In 2008, she was awarded her ‘Police Long Service and Good Conduct’ Medal.

She is currently undertaking an MSc in Psychological Trauma at Chester University.
