What is a Child Inclusive Mediator?

Child-Inclusive Mediation is a unique approach aimed at fostering communication and understanding within families undergoing separation or divorce. In this process, the children’s views, feelings, and concerns are central to the discussions, ensuring that their voices are heard and considered in decision-making.

At Albion Mediation, we recognise the significance of the child’s perspective in resolving family disputes. Our trained mediators facilitate constructive conversations between parents and children, creating a safe space where children can express themselves freely, without feeling pressured or conflicted.

Mediation Scotland - Albion Mediation

Mediation in Scotland plays a pivotal role in resolving family law disputes, ensuring a fair and amicable resolution while adhering to the specific legal framework set forth by the Scottish government.

Mediation offers a safe environment for parties to discuss concerns, including child access and separation in a confidential setting. Under the guidance of organizations like the Law Society of Scotland, mediation sessions follow Scottish court procedures and terms, ensuring compliance with the rights of the child and considering the individual’s own feelings and perspectives. Mediation aims to empower individuals to voice their concerns and preferences while working towards mutually acceptable solutions. This approach emphasises the importance of resolving disputes outside the formal court process, in Scotland. Through consultation and collaboration, mediation offers a pathway to address family law matters efficiently, promoting understanding and cooperation among parties involved.
