Our Manchester Mediators

James Storey FMCT

Mediateuk James Storey mediator

Accreditation: FMCT, Civil and Commercial, Workplace

Membership: FMC, COM, CMC, Association of Northern Mediators, National Dispute Resolution

Background: From an early age I was a manager in the Leisure and Hospitality industry working with people and potential conflict on a daily basis.

I then had the opportunity to train as driving instructor and, after a number of years and a number of near misses, I managed to get a lot of people safely through their driving test. I enjoyed being a driving instructor as I was changing people’s lives and giving them a skill for life.

Before training as a Family Mediator in Bolton, I trained as a Civil and Commercial Mediator conducting Neighbour and Contract disputes.

Why did you want to become a family mediator?
“Due to a personal situation I found myself having to participate in family mediation. After this experience I thought I could improve the service and I had a personal mission to train as a mediator and use the knowledge from these experiences in a positive way.”
What do you like most about family mediation?
“I enjoy helping people who were in conflict come together and help change their focus. When family mediation gets to the point where both parties are discussing what is best for the future and in particular a child it is really rewarding.”
What is the most difficult family mediation situation you have dealt with?
“The most difficult mediation I have dealt with is when a resident parent was putting many stipulations for the other party to see their child.
For example, they wanted drug tests and a criminal record check on the new partner. But they did not want the same done on their new partner. It was difficult to balance that request, but in the end they did reach an agreement with a phased reintroduction to the other parent.”
What do you enjoy most about working with Mediate UK?
“Mediate UK are a very supportive team despite us being spread out throughout the UK. We talk most days and can get any advice we require from them. Mediate UK have a very good working relationships with respectable solicitors, which allows us as mediators to get quick legal advice and also offer our clients Fixed Fee Legal Packages.
The Managing Director, Ali is very generous and is always looking to set up links with local charities and support local organisations or events. I have to say his jokes are very bad though!”
