What Is Mediation
Mediation is a way to resolve disputes and disagreements with a trained and impartial third-party present, who ensures that everyone is dealt with fairly and has their points heard.
Whether your dispute is with your partner, friend, family member, neighbour or employer, mediation offers a way to address issues in a controlled, safe and confidential environment. The mediator is there to help ensure the facts are heard and support you to find practical, fair and lasting resolutions for all parties.
Please note Linda is unable to offer mediation to separating couples. Since, April 2018 you are required by law to work with a MIHP Registered Mediator. Your solicitor will be able to provide a list of suitable contacts.
