About Bolton Mediation
Our new Family Mediation Service in Bolton has been running since 2019 and was our first mediation service in the North West of England. The office is in a modern and recently refurbished building in the heart of Bolton. We have partnered up with the legal advice clinic held at Bolton University and have given talks on family law and how mediation works to their law students.

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.
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.
Offered clarity and help at a difficult time – was very reassuring
Very informative, easy to talk to and understood all my concerns. This was a really Good start for someone like myself who has never done anything like this before.
Well explained, friendly , calm and reassure it was an easy process
