Welcome, from George Allingham.
Family mediation maters – to me, and it matters to you. I practice in Pembrokeshire, so cover Fishguard, Haverfordwest, Pembroke town and Dock, Tenby and all areas in between. I have a meeting room in Haverfordwest, and other locations are possible.

I believe that with the right specialist help and support most people are capable of resolving their own conflicts and reaching their own agreement.
Regardless of how and when you got to the point of considering, or researching, mediation you will see here that it is a safe constructive and focused form to help you and your partner. That partner may be current, former or soon to be your ex, or the other parent of your children.
Mediation is a quick, efficient and constructive process which can be carried out online. Please explore the pages here, and I look forward to speaking with you soon. The initial contact will usually be by phone (for a few minutes) or the completion of the enquiry form, and we will quickly meet for a MIAM (Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting).
It is important to appreciate that the mediator is able to give information but does not give advice, as mediators entirely independent and neutral. The information will be useful and constructive.
Mediation is a confidential, cost-effective process that helps people-even in high conflict-work cooperatively to create mutually satisfactory agreements that address the needs and concerns of a couple, and their children. Mediation is an assisted negotiation. A neutral professional help parties to a conflict come to an acceptable resolution of their problems. The mediator does not make any decisions for the people involved, but simply hosts, facilitates, and assists their discussions to enable them to reach their own agreements. Rather than communicate the slow and expensive way, with or through lawyers, mediation allows a channel for direct negotiations between the people involved.
As a mediator I help family members in conflict get unstuck, helping them define the problems and keep the discussions focused on the central issues, and assisting them to explore new perspectives on the problems and potential solutions. Mediator helps those in conflict gather the information they need to reach a solution or resolution, brainstorms regarding possible answers and may-where appropriate, share what others who faced similar issues have done, or higher court would likely handle the issue.
The ultimate decision about what is to be done remains firmly and completely in the hands of participants-not the mediator. The process continues only so long as everyone involved wants it.
