Thought for the day

'Any fact facing us is not as important as our attitude toward it, for that determines our success or failure. The way you think about a fact may defeat you before you ever do anything about it.' Norman Vincent Peale

We do not offer public funding (i.e. legal aid) for mediation. However our fees are competitive and subject to agreement on a case by case basis taking into account the nature of the dispute, the number of people involved, and the amount of preparation that may be necessary. However, we appreciate that clients want an indication of the fee for a mediation at an early stage.

No VAT charged

The table below provides a guide of typical fees*:

Amount you are claiming

Fees (per hour per party)

£0 to £2000


£2001 to £5000


£5001 to £15000


£15001 to £50000


over £50000


Family Mediation £120
MIAM £80

*For a confidential discussion on fee rates including fee packages in cases of retainers or repeat referrals please contact Dr. Zaza Elsheikh. The mediator will give you an indication as to the length of time required for your mediation.

The parties will be asked to sign an Agreement to Mediate prior to the mediation, a copy of which is downloadable here.

As part of our corporate social responsibility, the profit from our fees go towards supporting an affiliated mediation charity, Converge.
