Melanie Robinson FMCA. Accredited Family Mediator - bringing you
compassion and expertise at a difficult time; helping you to sort out the
practical issues of separation and divorce.
I am a fully insured member of Resolution and the Family Mediators’ Association; accredited by the Family Mediation Council in All Issues (Children and Finance and Property).
Prior to training as a family mediator, I worked in various roles across the Financial Services Industry, specialising in consumer over indebtedness and credit and fraud; so I am an expert in dealing with people across society in highly confidential and often emotive and distressing situations. I previously worked in many financial services firms such as HSBC, First Direct, Santander and GE; I have been a non- executive director/trustee at PayPlan, Bradford Citizens Advice Bureau and Law Centre, and Registry Trust; all of which give me a wealth of experience to support my clients in financial situations.
Additionally I have been a Family Magistrate in West Yorkshire for ten years. During this time, I have gained a wealth of experience of the family legal system, and I have seen first-hand what works well and what doesn’t.
I am a firm believer that if parents can reach an agreement between themselves about their children, it is far more powerful. This has led to becoming qualified as a family mediator as I truly believe in the benefits; it saves time, cost but mostly, is far less stressful:
It is future focused and is centred on your children.
My focus is to provide an empathetic service to my clients at what is a difficult and stressful time. However, sometimes plain talking is required in order to move things forward, and if so, I won’t be afraid to have a difficult conversation with you. Please contact me if you would like more information. I offer everyone a free initial consultation so you can explore if mediation is for you and your family
