Belinda Yamagishi offers mediation assessment and sessions in the comfortable and convenient location of Shine Holistic, Stoke Newington Church Street, as well as venues in central London. Family Mediation is a voluntary, impartial and confidential process of working towards making decisions about your life before, during and after separation or divorce. A trained Family Mediator will help you communicate in a balanced productive way to keep moving forwards. If you are separating or divorcing, mediation is often quicker, cheaper and less confrontational than going to court. Research shows it can cost a quarter of the price and take a quarter of the time of going to court. The most important aspect is that it promotes healthier communication styles which, in turn, should minimise the negative impact on children and yourself long-term.
