"The mediator listened to us both and was friendly and understanding"

Welcome

Mediation helps couples to resolve practical matters arising from separation or divorce.  It avoids the high costs and stress of the court process and allows you to take control of the outcomes.

It is not designed to discuss whether the relationship can still work but to help you both to move forward and co-operate in making decisions.

Mediation Process

Mediation takes place in a confidential and informal setting.  The mediators are impartial  - they do not advise you or represent you individually, but help you to explore the options and ways of reaching an agreement whilst avoiding pressure being put on either of you.  They help you to communicate effectively and arrive at practical and sensible solutions.

The mediator will assist in reducing conflict and keeping the focus on the issues you each wish to resolve.  Where children are involved, they help you to consider your children’s feelings and needs and communicate with each other as you continue to be parents.

We are able to offer FREE mediation to those who qualify for Legal Aid.
