What is mediation?

meetingFamily Mediation helps you to resolve conflict and reach agreement on all issues surrounding separation, divorce or dissolution of civil partnership you may have.  Clients bring a variety of issues to mediation for discussion, the scope of the sessions is up to you.  For further information on the range of things you can discuss with me, click here.

Mediation is a voluntary and confidential process that helps you reach joint decisions without going to court.  It is often a quicker and more cost effective way to resolve disputes.

It also offers a safe, neutral place where you and your ex-partner can meet with me, an impartial mediator to work out your plans for the future.  It can also be used to resolve other family disputes e.g. for Grandparents who are struggling to see their grandchildren.  To find out more about who can attend mediation, click here.

During the mediation sessions, I will not tell you what to do but will help you look at different options for sorting things out.  I will enable you to reach your own agreements about all aspects of your separation, divorce or dissolution, including arrangements for children, finances and property.  To understand more about the different stages of mediation, click here.
