Welcome to Horizon Mediation
We are a team of highly experienced professional family mediators, all formerly practising lawyers and now specialising in mediation. Together, we have advised, helped and represented thousands of husbands, wives, mothers and fathers at Court.
With a combined experience of over 40 years we cover Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, London and Oxfordshire.
All our mediators are Family Mediation Council Accredited – the Gold Standard of mediation. We care about your issues and concerns and will work closely with you so you feel fully supported through the mediation process. We will guide you to the light at the end of the tunnel.
You know what’s best for your family
Family Mediation allows you to decide your future so you can move on with your life. Mediation Information Assessment Meetings (MIAMs) and mediation sessions are available online and at our offices.
Can we mediate remotely?
Absolutely. You are free to choose the remote meeting option that works best for you, including Zoom, Skype, Microsoft Teams and Google Hangouts.
My children need stability
“Child Inclusive Mediation” gives your kids a safe way to express their feelings and concerns without putting them under pressure. Knowing what they think will help you as parents to make important decisions for them for the future.
My ex won’t stick to agreements
If your situation changes and the arrangements aren’t working you can go back to your mediator and change the original agreement. If you’ve made an agreement legally binding and somebody doesn’t follow it you should consider whether it can be sorted out with the help of a mediator. If not, it can be enforced through the courts.
I can’t be in a room with my ex
If for any reason you do not want to be in the same room with your ex-partner we can provide a safe, separate space where you can mediate without having any contact. This is often called “shuttle mediation” and your mediator will act as a go-between.
Please note that due to COVID-19 restrictions, we may have to conduct meetings online, however, we will review this at the time of your booking.
