How does mediation work?

Providing high quality family mediation in Cwmbran, Barry Blackwood and Neath.


Divorce/separation is rarely easy. The breakdown of a relationship can be devastating to those involved. We believe we can help you cut the time cost and agony of Divorce.
Many separating couples would like to come to an agreement over their children and financial affairs without going to court. We have plenty of experience of the pitfalls of going through the courts.


Mediation is a voluntary process that facilitates the resolution of disputes without having to go to court. It can only take place if both people are willing to commit to resolving the dispute in this way. The fact it is voluntary reflects the understanding that the two of you are jointly in charge of what you do.
We can provide an environment where all those involved can safely express their feelings and needs. We can assist you in the search for a workable outcome that provides a permanent solution cost effectively. We will work with you to move towards a dignified outcome that works for you and your family.
