Family Mediation

At Sussex Peaceful Solutions, based in Brighton, Hove, Worthing and surrounding areas, we offer family mediation in a relaxed and friendly environment. We are here to support you and your family through a period of change, usually where this has occurred as a result of separation, divorce or family restructuring.
Family breakdown is distressing so you may well be worried about the effect on your children and we can help in different ways. The aim of family mediation is to agree on practical, workable arrangements for the future, taking into account children’s views, needs and feelings.
Our focus is on putting children’s needs first and making divorce and separation less stressful for everyone. Whilst our main focus is on the well being of children, we also mediate on a wide range of other family relationship issues for example:
    • Couples going through separation or divorce and parents seeking to discuss arrangements for their children
    • Grandparents or other relatives seeking to discuss arrangements for time with children
    • Long term separated and divorced couples. step-families, parent/teenager, grandparent/parent and financial and property matters.

Workplace Mediation

We also offer dispute resolution services for workplace matters where an impartial third party is needed. 
Personality clashes and stress account for 83% of all workplace conflicts. We will come to you and hopefully resolve your conflict one day. Click here for more information
For either family or workplace matters, please feel free to ring us for an informal discussion about your situation. We offer a free telephone consultation to help you decide if mediation is suitable for you. In cases where the other party has yet to agree to mediation, we will write to them and follow up with a call to talk about what mediation has to offer.
