About MyMediation

Mediation ensures that both parties are heard and allows you to retain control over outcomes. It is impartial and confidential, and works alongside the legal process. Mediation is a quicker and more cost effective route to resolve children and financial matters than going to Court.

Our service is underpinned by our belief that mediation is a positive choice for parties in dispute. We are a client centred service, and treat each case with the respect it deserves. As an interdisciplinary team we bring a wide range of expertise and experience to our practice.

Why Use Us?

  • A proven track record of resolving issues
  • Affordable and clear costs
  • Legal aid available
  • Straightforward and regular communication
  • Quick, flexible appointments
  • The choice of three office locations

We understand that separation causes emotions such as anger and grief which makes communication difficult. Our mediators are skilled at helping you navigate the legal and emotional maze that family breakdown can create.

Solicitor & Family mediator

I am an accredited family mediator and member of the Family Mediators Association with over 15 years experience working as a family solicitor and more recently as a family mediator.

I qualified as a solicitor in 2003 and have extensive experience in the resolution of family disputes between couples, parents and grandparents in relation to divorce, children, financial and domestic violence cases.

I have always been committed to a constructive and non confrontational approach to family disputes and this lead me to train as a family mediator in 2010.  I see mediation as a more positive and creative alternative to litigation in the Court system.

In particular I feel strongly that the negative effects of separation and divorce on children are limited wherever possible.

Family mediator

I am an accredited family mediator and a member of the Family Mediators Association.

My background is in advice and guidance, having worked for many years as a Careers Adviser.

As a family mediator I am committed to assisting separated couples establish a dialogue and focus on the future.

With 3 children of my own I can identify with difficult parenting issues, and my aim is to help parents to reach agreement that is in the best interests of their children.

My focus is to provide a forum in which parents can discuss their children’s needs in a constructive way and work out practical arrangements, whether that is day to day details or to the much wider issues involved but always to prevent children from being caught in the middle.
