Aldershot Mediation

About Aldershot Family Mediation

We have been running family mediation in Aldershot since 2014. It was our third branch to go live and is a great venue to hold mediation appointments. The building was an Officer’s mess before being turned into Aldershot Enterprise Centre. The meeting rooms are large and spacious and we can host shuttle mediation at the venue as well.

Please use the car parks only and do not park along the road.

Our Aldershot Mediators

Chloe Evans

Mediateuk Chloe Evans mediator

Accreditation: FMCA

Membership: College of Mediators

Background: I left university and was sponsored by the Magistrates Courts to complete my Law Finals. After qualifying as a Solicitor, I spent about 20 years working as a legal adviser and legal team manager in the Magistrates courts.

I have extensive experience in the criminal and family divisions of the Magistrates’ courts. I left the Magistrates’ courts as they amalgamated and I needed to spend more time with my family. I volunteered for Citizens Advice whilst training as a mediator and ended up working part-time for them as a supervisor.

I became accredited as a family mediator in May 2018

QU:
Why did you want to become a family mediator?
“Having been a legal adviser in the family courts and seen parties attend court and the experiences they went through, I could see it was much better if they could come to a solution themselves and avoid the pain and confusion of going through the legal process. I could see the benefits of helping them to do this.
Friends encouraged me to train as a mediator as they believed I had the right qualities
I enjoy new challenges and felt training as a mediator was a good path to follow.”
QU:
What do you like most about Family mediation?
“When parties you see not communicating or even looking at each other at the beginning of the process come to a set of proposals. Seeing them relax and able to communicate again.
Feeling that information given by me as a mediator can make a difference to parties moving forward. Seeing parties say what they need to say and feel they are listened to and acknowledged. Seeing parties come back from a meeting where I felt they were at a real impasse and then agreeing proposals.”
QU:
What is the most difficult mediation situation you have dealt with?
“A high conflict situation where it was clear one of the parties was suffering from depression. I ended up having to separate them and continue the meeting with parties in different rooms.”
QU:
What do you enjoy most about working with Mediate UK?
“The Company is very supportive. There is a really good team of mediators and staff at Mediate UK who will always encourage, support and help.There is excellent admin support at Mediate UK.
The Company is always looking at new ways to grow and develop and has some great innovative ideas including the legal packages on offer and backing charities like the Trussell Trust and Child Law Advice”

Emma Ingham

Mediateuk Emma Ingham mediator

Accreditation: LLB (Hons), LLM, FMCT

Membership: Family Mediation Council, College of Mediators

Background: I have a law degree from the University of Wales, Swansea and a Masters Degree in Child Law.  After completing my training contract in Cardiff, I decided to specialise in family law.  I practised as a solicitor for 8 years, representing clients in public and private law proceedings.

After a move to Surrey and a career break to have my two children, I trained as a Family Mediator with National Family Mediation.

QU:
Why did you want to become a family mediator?
“I always liked my job as a family solicitor but when I thought about returning to work after a break, I realised that I missed my clients and helping them, not necessarily the courts and the legal system! Being a family mediator, I can use my knowledge and experience but in a completely different setting which is great.”
QU:
What do you like most about Family mediation?
“There will always be a need for individual legal advice and representation but what I like most about Family mediation is having the opportunity to speak with both parties at the same time and see first-hand how they communicate with each other, or how they struggle to communicate. It really is a unique insight into the relationship.”
QU:
What is the most difficult mediation situation you have dealt with?
“It’s great when a client feels comfortable talking to you. However, when you struggle to get a word in edgeways and there is a lot of slating of an ex-partner, with some very choice language, it can be quite a challenging situation. Luckily, this was an initial meeting so the ex-partner was not present. I did need a good lie down after that meeting though. Exhausting!”
QU:
What do you enjoy most about working with Mediate UK?
“My colleagues at Mediate UK are the best (and I’m not just saying that because they might read this!). Everyone is incredibly supportive, always on hand to offer guidance and advice. We are all passionate about helping our clients and offering a great service to them.”
QU:
Give us 5 facts about you
1. I wanted to be a vet when I was younger but I was hopeless at science!
2. My favourite thing to do is to meet my friends for a coffee….and a pastry.
3. I have very bad taste in television and watch terrible reality TV. Don’t judge me.
4. I have two beautiful daughters who keep me on my toes.
5. I met my husband at Law School. He is a lawyer too but to this day, I don’t understand his job. At all.

Tamsin Baxter

Mediateuk Tamsin Baxter mediator

Accreditation: FMCT

Membership: College of Mediators CILEX

Background: I worked at Sainsburys, from checkouts to HR to Legal Assistant in Head Office. It made me quickly realise I wanted to work with families and not in a corporate environment.

After studying law I worked in a Child Contact Centre, which also offered mediation. I completed the NFM training course and continued my training with Mediate UK.

QU:
Why did you want to become a family mediator?
“I always wanted to be a family lawyer but the legal aid cuts that came in just after I graduated meant that I wasn’t able to find the job that I really wanted.
After discussing other options, family mediation took to my liking immediately. It is affordable and amicable for the clients and it is rewarding and fulfilling for the mediator.”
QU:
What do you like most about Family mediation?
“I like that children always come first and that clients have full control over what they do and don’t agree to.
I love seeing the relief in clients’ faces when they have reached an agreement. They often come to meetings believing that nothing will be agreed, and it will all be a waste of time – there is nothing I love more than proving people wrong!”
QU:
What is the most difficult mediation situation you have dealt with?
“When two clients had completely different ideas about how they should parent their child. The child’s needs were not put first and a lot of pressure was put on him to make decisions, which he was really too young to make.”
QU:
What do you enjoy most about working with Mediate UK?
“The team. Definitely. It is made up of brilliant characters, all with differing backgrounds and expertise. They are all more than willing to share their ideas and skills, and everyone feels safe to shout when they do not know something!
Mediate UK offers opportunities that are not available elsewhere to trainee mediators. They genuinely want you to be the best mediator you can be and do not hold back on helping you to achieve just that.”
QU:
Give us 5 facts about you
1. I love to learn.
2. I am passionate about mental health wellbeing.
3. I am obsessed with Disney and insist that everyone in my household shares my obsession.
4. My nickname is Taz – due to my temper tantrums as a toddler resembling the cartoon character Taz, The Tasmanian Devil…
5. I have two wonderful daughters, who thankfully do not resemble the Tasmanian Devil.
