Emma Bugg LLB (Hons) FMCA

Harpenden, St Albans & Hemel Hempstead

Emma graduated in Law in the early 1990s and spent the first fifteen years of her professional life working as a specialist family solicitor, so she knows what your lawyers will be looking for in any mediated agreement. 

Emma has a calm, practical non- judgmental approach. As a family mediator Emma recognises that many people want to maintain control of the separation process and avoid the emotional and financial cost of going to court. Emma helps clients to agree parenting plans, and to sort out issues about housing and finances on separation.

Emma is a member of the College of Mediators and is qualified to see children as part of the mediation process (CIM) and also works as a supervisor to other mediator colleagues as a Professional Practice Consultant (PPC.) Emma is also qualified in using an advanced Hybrid mediation practice model, whereby the lawyers of separating couples can have a more direct and constructive role in the process. 

Emma works with separating couples, helping them to identify what really matters to the couple and how best to settle things in a fair and equitable way. Assets become more than just the bricks and mortar; they include future family relationships.

What Emma’s Clients Say

“Highly recommended – an excellent service, Emma is highly professional, thorough and makes the process feel a lot easier then the initial nerve-racking thoughts. It goes smoothly online – no need to pass the winter months in frustration. Thank you Emma again for your time.”

Mr Z – St Albans

“Can’t speak highly enough of Emma’s professionalism and willingness to go the extra mile – excellent service.”

Mr B – St Albans

“Emma was very quick to respond and very helpful. She is impartial which is obviously the point and sensitive to her clients concerns. There was no jargonistic language and I was never left feeling baffled. If you find yourself in a situation where you need a mediator then I would highly recommend Emma.”

Mr H – St Albans

“Hi Emma, I just wanted to send you a direct email to thank you so much for your help…. What the sessions gave the children and I ..were a few days reprieve from (husband’s) behaviour which was amazing.

I have spoken to my solicitor to advise her how great you are and if she sees anyone else in a similar situation to mine, to recommend they see you. If any future clients wish to have a review of your services, I am more than happy for you to forward my details to them.”

Mrs N – Harpenden

“I found Emma, very calm and fair in this process, as I was finding the whole situation very emotional experience. Since the mediation finished and our financial offer have been agreed upon, we have discussed our time in mediation and both have agreed it was the best way forward. My ex had been very resistant to this process and I had insisted it was the only way forward to us. For once he listened. He confessed that he had felt Emma was on my side at times and I corrected him to say I felt at times she was on my side but overall I had felt she was on his. So we have concluded that overall she actually was doing a very good job and the result is that we have a Financial Order.”

Mrs S – St Albans

“Emma Bugg was professional with both us at all times, she remained impartial at all times and always listened at all times. She let both myself and my ex-partner make our decisions and overall it was an amicable experience 10/10.”

Mr A – Hemel Hempstead

From the onset, Emma has been extremely professional, compassionate and informative. She has guided and supported us both through a very difficult process. An excellent service and one I would thoroughly recommend.

Mr G – Harpenden

“Whilst having no experience of divorce or mediation hitherto, I think the process has obviated a lot of possible bickering and unpleasantness that could have otherwise arisen. It has probably saved both parties considerable expense as opposed to everything being dealt with by solicitors, not to mention time – an important factor at our age! I have found Emma Bugg very professional, efficient and friendly, and extremely thorough in handling our case, which was quite complicated financially. She came up with good ideas, looking at the overall picture and not just “one side”. I would certainly recommend Emma to anyone else who I found to be in this regrettable position.”

Mrs B – St Albans

“The mediation was a scary experience and I felt vulnerable. However the mediator (Emma) made me feel at ease and that my safety was important. She allowed us to sit where we wanted and gave us a glass of water. She was very clear about the rules and expectations and occasionally referred back to them, which reminded me why we were there. I found her to be very fair – sometimes she supported my ex-husband and sometimes me. She remained calm and assertive.”
