Anita was a teacher, senior teacher and Head Teacher in a career spanning 30 years during which she had hands on, day to day dealings with children and their families. She was often called on to help to resolve issues arising within families and between children. She left teaching in order to retrain as a mediator and has subsequently brought her great experience of children into the mediation room where she helps parents to resolve the difficulties that can arise in this most emotive of areas where engagement with the court system can often cause more problems than it solves. Trinity Family Mediation is one of the few practices in the Midlands which offers direct child consultation (where appropriate) and a specialisation in child-related issues by a mediator whose professional life has been based working with and around children. For further details see the leaflet in the "Downloads" tab above.

As life-changing experiences go, the breakdown of a relationship ranks high in its capacity to cause stress, misery and upset. Following breakdown, the usual path has been to involve lawyers and the adversarial court process, in effect handing over the decision making in respect of the parties future to others. Experience teaches that documents filed in pursuit of this form of dispute resolution, and point scoring in inter-solicitor correspondence, may often inflame the situation. As a general rule this process seldom promotes improved relationships in the post-court era and is almost invariably expensive and time-consuming. While we still come across it, the view that relationship breakdown is to be regarded as something to fight over rather than as a tragedy for those involved (including the children), is increasingly outdated. Financial resources are reduced at a time when they should be kept within the family. We can help you to sort out your finances in what is likely to be a more cost efficient way than taking your case through the courts.
We welcome self-referrals from parties and also referrals from other professionals e.g. solicitors, counsellors etc. The self-referral form is in the "Downloads" section
