How to choose a Mediator

In the UK alone there are over 1000 registered mediators. So, how do you ensure you choose the right mediator for your case?

If you are considering mediation, we strongly recommend that you choose a mediator who has:

– Been trained specifically in mediation to industry-accepted standards

– Carries out suitable levels of professional development

– Follows an appropriate Code of Conduct

– Provides access to a complaints process if necessary

By choosing a mediator that is registered with the CMC it will provide you with peace of mind that your mediator abides by a Code of Conduct, has been trained to acceptable industry standards, has suitable insurance, carries out continuous training and development and offers access to a complaints process if needed.

CMC does not presently register mediators working in areas such as family or community mediation. To find a family mediator, contact the Family Mediation Council.

Many of our Registered Mediators, Registered Mediation Providers or members also practise different areas of mediation.
