Family Mediation – The Next Steps

Post by: Christine Pickwell 25/01/2019 0 comments 768 views

I hope that the blogs that have been posted over the last few days have helped give an insight into the Mediation process.

Of course Mediation is not suitable for everyone or for all cases. For the vast majority of people it does help focus on the future to reach joint solutions.

I have drawn together some anonymous comments that we have received from clients over the years:

“I think Mediation can really help separating families like us.  Our marriage has come to the end of the road. We just want to sort everything out fairly without scoring points off each other or spending all of our hard earned cash”.

“Thank you for all your help in sorting out our money arrangements and what is going to happen with the children.  I hope that we can move forward now more peacefully. If we have any problems in the future, particularly about the arrangements for the children, I will not hesitate but to contact you again”.

“I had read quite a bit about Mediation before the session started. I didn’t realise how empowering it could be in getting us to talk again on our own without interference from our extended family”.

“When my parents separated it was horrible.  I remember crying myself to sleep most nights because I did not know what was happening and nobody seemed to understand.  To come and actually talk to a Mediator would have made all the difference”.

“Thank you Christine and Paul for helping us see a way through.  I can now rebuild my life knowing that we did the best we could to sort everything out”.
