What our clients say

We are proud to have helped many people resolve their differences with professional mediation services. For the majority of our clients,mediation has helped them come to a conclusion within just a few sessions.

Don't just take our word for it, here's what our clients have to say.

Very helpful,supportive and thorough. You made athe process so much easier for us. Thank you.

Vicki's guidance was invaluable in helping me and my ex-husband to reach a financial settlement. The process culminates in a solicitor-supported session in which the keyareas of disagreement were resolved and this became the foundation for the consent order.

Laura was friendly, professional and approachable. She helped maintain a calm and collaborative environment for us. We were able to reflect and discuss the future in a supportive and safe way. I cannot thank Laura enough for her sessions with us, we achieved an outcome together which I didn't dream was possible. We entered the process not communicating at all, and ended up positively co parenting.

I thought Karen was great, very measured and considered in her approach which helped us also be that.

Considering I didn't know what tp expect and had my reservations about mediation, I thought the service was brilliant. Georgina was amazing from start to finish. Professional, understanding, patient, helpful with good suggestions, a talent for interpretation and listening skills - all the good values you would expect and need in a mediator.
