  • Jayne Swanston was very helpful and skilled in our mediation process, helping us both to come to agreements on financial, family, housing, separation and divorce matters. She created a safe environment which reduced my anxiety and made a very stressful and traumatic time into a much easier time. She helped us to swiftly come to agreement without antagonism or high emotion. I felt safe and understood throughout. She understood where the legal standing was, how we each felt and what the priorities were for both of us.

  • The organisation and staff were all very helpful.

  • They talk to you – not at you or above you.

  • Our mediator was excellent. I felt heartened that due consideration was shown to BOTH parties. All the elements of patience, focus and expedience (important financially) along with clear, concise delivery were very skilful.

  • We were given the opportunity to raise topics/issues which otherwise would not have been possible.

  • The mediator was very good all the way and very helpful. I was very pleased with her.

  • The mediation allowed my ex and I to establish dialogue about our issues and to come to a mutually satisfactory agreement.

  • The mediator helped me understand things from my ex’s point of view and helped us to communicate better for the sake of our son. He helped us talk again, sort out our finances and arrangements for our son. Thank you from my heart.

  • The mediator was very understanding and patient and took time to explain everything well.

  • The mediator was empathetic and trustworthy. He provided an effective space in which we could discuss and reach an agreement.

  • The mediation was kept impartial and all discussions were calm and positive.

  • The mediator was very kind, which made the situation easier.

  • It provided a fair framework where difficult, emotive issues could be brought to the table and discussed without feeling brow-beaten into decisions.

  • The reception over the telephone was extremely sympathetic and kind, elements hugely important for someone who is traumatised and vulnerable. I felt safe, respected and never a hindrance.

  • I found the mediator very helpful, kind and supportive.

  •  Jayne, I wanted to write to you to tell you that after nearly a year the estate is settled. Thank you for your kindness and help.

  • Jayne, Thank you for your help today in guiding us through this difficult and painful situation. I really hope we can go on to communicate and heal from this, and like you said give our children the gift of knowing that both parents are ok and can show respect and in a way love to each other even though they are not physically together.
