Who is this service for?
Child Inclusive Mediation may be suitable for children from the age of five (5) onwards, and is available for parents of children who are already engaged in mediation with us. Both parents must give their consent, and it is not appropriate for all family situations.
What is a child consultant?
Our child consultants are skilled and accredited practitioners who possess a range of qualifications, training and experience in working with children’s needs following their parents’ separation.
All consultants have acquired post-graduate qualifications in family dispute resolution.
The role of the child consultant is to:
- provide a neutral space for your child to share their feelings and experiences of their family’s situation
- communicate your child’s feelings in a safe and constructive way to both parents
- act impartially and independently to bring your child’s voice into the mediation process
How do I make an appointment?
If you are currently in the process of mediation talk to your Family Dispute Resolution practitioner about the possibility of Child Inclusive Mediation.
No referral from another service or health provider is required to access this service, although you must already be taking part in a mediation process with us.
There are no fees associated with this service.
