Welcome to Clare Madeline Mediation, a modern, collaborative approach to divorce and separation without using the Court. This is a bespoke service for couples seeking a personalised mediation service where they and their children are very much at the heart of what I offer.
I am not trying to compete with the many larger mediation services in and around the area. I fully support the great work they do in championing mediation and view many of my fellow mediators as friends and colleagues. I aim to offer something different.
I often describe mediation as being the next step up from a couple being able to sit around the kitchen table and work things out themselves. I have created a mediation service which offers a professional yet very personalised service demonstrating that there is a better and more civilised way to divorce.
I invite clients into my home where I have created a warm, calm and welcoming space for their mediation. Going into a solicitors office or a cold meeting room can be daunting and often just adds to the emotional stress clients feel. Clients are welcome to use the garden (weather permitting!) if they need a breather at any time. Parking is available.
I am trained to meet and offer direct consultation with children in the mediation process. I am passionate about giving children a voice where it is appropriate and helpful to do so. My mediation room provides a safe and confidential space for a child to be individually seen in a setting which they would find comfortable.
