Our Guildford 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”

Christine Reynard

Mediateuk Christine Reynard mediator

Accreditation: FMCT

Membership: College of Mediators

I started mediating in 2007 in restorative justice and then as a Community mediator and then setting up an Intergenerational mediation service, which is still going strong.

I recently stepped down as Chairman of West Surrey Mediation Service and as a trustee of Mediation Surrey.

QU:
Why did you want to become a family mediator?
It was a natural move from mediating in other mediation circles. I should have trained in family mediation years ago.
I like working with families and although separation and divorce are very stressful, it is very important to me, that families end up with a fair outcome.
QU:
What do you like most about Family mediation?
Good mediation can have great consequences for children. I like seeing people leaving a meeting feeling that something constructive has happened. I like people finishing the process in a calmer place than when they started.
QU:
What is the most difficult mediation situation you have dealt with?
I find it difficult when parents will not, or occasionally cannot, consider their children’s feelings separately from their own.
A good trait for a mediator perhaps, I don’t mind dealing with stressful situations!
QU:
What do you enjoy most about working with Mediate UK?
We have a great mediation team.
All the staff and mediators are supportive of each other and work constructively together, sharing our particular areas of specialist knowledge.
QU:
Give us 5 facts about you
1. My garden is a very relaxing place for me and I am getting better at growing a large assortment of herbs.
2. I have lived in six countries and love meeting people who are different to me.
3. I have three, grown up children.
4. My knowledge of financial crime is quite good.
5. Interiors and art are my passion. A trip to the V&A or an antiques market just a perfect day.

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.
