The Panel of Mediators

The Society's Panel of Mediators Fourteen Outstanding Mediators - call 0207 353 3936

The Society of Mediators is delighted now to offer a panel of fully accredited mediators who work to the highest standards for fair and reasonable fees.  This innovation, which is a pilot scheme, is in response to high demand for a neutral, professional, and expert national panel who are credible and properly monitored, motivated, and moderated.   Uniquely, a proportion of each mediator's fees is given back to the Charity to help fund its work.  Panel members work nationally often at short notice.  Please call Yazmyn Corteggio on 0207 353 3936 for details or email her

The Society of Mediators' Panel of Mediators all have full accredited training; they have conducted many (often hundreds of) mediations; have worked with the Society to train other mediators; have full (£2 million) professional indemnity insurance; have up-to-date CPD; have been specially approved for the Panel; have undergone annual mentoring and peer review; and work under the European Code of Conduct  

Each of our Panel of 14 mediators offer facilitative mediation - they mediate neutrally without offering an opinion but use their skills to assist the resolution conversation. Those with the letter [E] by their names are also qualified to offer evaluative mediation if requested.  Please ask for details.
