What is the secret of NFM’s style of mediation? What will the mediator do?

Our expert family mediators use a range of skills to help you plan for the future: 

  • Helping you identify the things you need to discuss
  • Managing the agenda in a timely way
  • Using questions to help people identify priorities and needs
  • Listening to ensure your points are really heard and understood 
  • Summarising understanding 
  • Not taking sides, and encouraging self-determination 
  • Ensuring access to necessary information 
  • Helping people spell out arrangements to check they will work
  • Ensuring neither person dominates discussions, or makes insulting or demeaning comments
  • These skills are designed to help you decide for yourself what is best in all the circumstances.
