Welcome to Mediation and More
Our mediators are professional, experienced and independent. They are all registered with the Family Mediation Council (FMC) as FMC Accredited Family Mediators (FMCA) for family and child arrangements, which authorises us to conduct Mediation Information and Assessment Meetings – MIAM’s.
NOTE: If your mediator DOES NOT have an FMC registration, they cannot issue or sign Court Forms. It is therefore VERY important to check this. These meetings are designed to ensure that you have all the information you need about mediation and the alternatives to mediation that apply to your situation.
The mediator will want to hear your issues and to talk to you about what it is you want to achieve. If mediation is not appropriate, there may be alternative ways in which you can be assisted towards reaching an agreement.
Our mediators have a wealth of experience they can apply to family mediation, community mediation, workplace mediation and a host of other issues. If you have issues resulting from relationship breakdown and need to discuss the options available, attending a MIAM is the first step.
Whatever your dispute, we can help take the pressure off you, your family, your colleagues, or whoever is involved. Our track record is based around success we’ve had helping people just like you, and preventing expensive and lengthy proceedings.
About Our Mediators
All our mediators are professionally qualified to conduct family mediation and, in addition, some of us also have experience and training in community, workplace and family group conferencing. We are also qualified to consult with children and conduct inter-generational mediation. All of us have enhanced CRB/DBS certificates.
All our mediators have been trained by National Family Mediation (NFM), and we have all completed core training, competency assessment and accreditation through the completion of a portfolio to comply with the standards set by the Family Mediation Council.
All our mediators have regular supervision with a Professional Practice Consultant, and are required to complete at least 10 hours of Continual Professional Development each year to qualify to continue practicing.
Most of the time our mediators work on their own, but we encourage co-working (two mediators consulting together) whenever it is practical or advisable to do so. Co-working is also encouraged to enable mediators to observe each other’s practice.
