The Gold Standard

It is unlikely that you have had the opportunity to meet with a mediator before calling for their services. So how do you know you are making the right choice and your mediator has the skills knowledge training and experience to help you work through all of your divorce, separation, child arrangements and finances?

Choosing an NFM mediator means that you have come to the most experienced organisation as we have 40 years of training and practice experience in the field of divorce and separation mediation. Longer than any other mediation provider. The gold standard for family mediation.

When you choose a family mediator you need to feel sure that you will receive a highly professional service in every aspect. All our mediators are fully qualified and accredited by the Family Mediation Council (FMC) and the Legal Aid Agency (LAA). 

You can have confidence if you choose an NFM mediator that you will be working with someone who is highly trained and qualified, who has the ability, knowledge and skills that you will require to help you decide your future.

 NFM mediators are up to date in their practice and have access to regular support and supervision.

Here are some simple things to look for when choosing a mediator are:

  • Are they listed on the Family Mediation Council (FMC) website? The FMC is the regulator of family mediation.
  • Do they have a Unique Reference Number (URN)?
  • Do they have a registered supervisor?
  • Do they provide access to legal aid?
  • Are they accredited to meet children?

As a training provider, we are also keen to make sure new mediators coming into the profession acquire all the necessary skills to become accredited and accomplished mediators as a result we are committed to working with new mediators under supervision so they can achieve accreditation.

Our mediators all have professional qualifications and experience in relevant disciplines, such as law, social work, human relations, finance or counselling prior to training as a mediator.
