Mediation for you
In conflict with someone? We know how to resolve it
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.
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 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

Disputes within businesses are inevitable. Scarce resources, competing priorities, a difficult trading climate, and people with disparate ideas can all combine to produce interpersonal conflict. Read more
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
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
