Thames Valley Family Mediation service has consistently delivered excellence in family mediation services for over 30 years. We are affiliated to National Family Mediation (NFM), one of the lead bodies on the Family Mediation Council (FMC). This is the governing body of family mediation and is responsible for setting and maintaining standards in the profession. All our mediators are trained by NFM, recognised by the FMC and meet the ongoing continuing professional development requirements of that body. The service has a Family Mediation Contract with the Legal Aid Agency (LAA) to provide free mediation to those eligible for Legal Aid and so is a Quality Assured Family Mediation service, meeting the high standards required by those select mediation services authorised to offer publicly funded mediation (Legal Aid).

Four in five couples attending mediation reach agreements on most or all of the issues that they bring. Mediation supported by good legal advice has been shown to be more cost effective, faster and less stressful than going only through solicitors and/or the courts.
We work with individuals going though separation and divorce and also work with families involved in other types of disputes often involving children. Our client group includes:
