Mediation for you

In conflict with someone? We know how to resolve it

If you find yourself coming into conflict with someone, the best remedy is to talk things through and to reach a mutually satisfactory conclusion. Occasionally, however, a dispute drags on longer, goes far deeper, or seems rather more difficult to resolve. This is where mediation can help.

A mediator is a specially trained professional whose job it is to get people talking. They can help you and the other person to have a safe, structured, and purposeful conversation about what is going on between you. The mediator is impartial, and ensures that you can both get your points across and at the same time listen to what the other person has to say. Mediation usually concludes with an agreement about what the two of you are going to do to bring your dispute to an end.

Our mediators are highly skilled, accredited to the most advanced standard, and very experienced in dealing with all types of conflict. They provide exactly what is needed when your dispute has gone beyond the point where the two of you can resolve it for yourselves.

Workplace mediation

Conflict in the workplace is common. Most of the time things can be sorted out with a chat, but when they can’t, they can soon take a turn for the worse: communication breaks down, other people get drawn in, and what begins as a difference of opinion can quickly become a significant problem for your organisation.

Family relationship mediation

There are two types of family mediation, family relationship mediation and family separation mediation. We practise family relationship mediation. Family separation mediation is more of a quasi-legal discipline, and as we are not lawyers, we try not to get involved! Family relationship mediation, however, is for those families who are looking to stay together. Read more

Tenancy mediation

Are you in a dispute with your landlord or with one of your tenants? Perhaps there is a problem with payment or with a security deposit. Maybe the property isn’t up to the standard you think it should be, or there could be an issue relating to service charges or to maintaining the property. Read more

Neighbourhood mediation

Most of us have neighbours, and we can get on with them most of the time. And when there are any difficulties or disagreements, most of the time we can all sort things out with a chat over the fence. Sometimes, however, communication breaks down. There are disagreements or persistent complaints which, if left unaddressed, can turn into more significant problems. Read more

Commercial mediation

Commercial disputes are mostly about money, property, goods, services, intellectual property, or boundaries: usually financial and contractual matters that could otherwise end up in court. Maybe you have delivered a service and not been paid, or perhaps you have paid for something that didn’t turn out to be what you expected. Read more

How we arrange a mediation

We’ve been doing this a long time and over the years we’ve developed a finely tuned process that ensures things get off to the best start, everyone understands the process and the positive outcome that everyone is hoping for is more likely to come to fruition.

Clearly every situation is different, and one of the reasons we are so successful is our bespoke, flexible and tailored approach to all types of mediation; however, this overriding structure works well.
