The Shropshire Mediation Service is a member of the Family Mediators Association and the Family Mediation Council which ensures a high standard of competence. All mediators that are members of these organisations must have completed approved training and have regular supervision meetings to carry out mediation meetings.
Our Mediator Leanne Hayward is accredited with the Family Mediation Council and is a member of the Family Mediators Association.
Leanne previously worked as a family solicitor until 2016 and has considerable experience of dealing with family disputes within the legal community. Leanne completed a foundation course in mediation during 2014 and has been working solely as a mediator since 2016. Leanne is passionate about helping families resolve their disputes and finds that mediation allows her more flexibility to help families to reach an amicable solution.
During the current COVID-19 Pandemic, mediation is being offered online where possible. Face to face in person meetings can take place but are subject to risk assessment at the time they are requested.
