Mediate UK Chris Yaffes Mediator

Accreditation: FMCA

Membership: Resolution

I have been mediating since 2013, and a focus of my practice has been working with expatriate, trans-national and international couples. My interest in working across countries and nationalities stems from my own background. I trained as a lawyer in South Africa where I practiced Family and Criminal Law before moving to New York, where I took a break from law and studied for a Masters in International Relations, subsequently working in the non-profit world as a writer, researcher and producer of documentary films. In 2011, I moved to the UK and began my training as a family mediator.

QU:
Why did you want to become a family mediator?
I first heard about mediation through an acquaintance, who was going through a divorce, and who had found it a positive experience. I realised that my experience, temperament and life skills were suited to the job and that the mediator can make a positive difference to difficult and emotionally stressful situations.
QU:
What do you most like about family mediation?
Mediation provides a more informal context than the legal profession and offers more freedom in terms of finding solutions. I enjoy people and helping them find resolution. There is also never a dull moment.
QU:
What is the most difficult mediation situation that you have dealt with?
There is no single most-difficult situation, but the most challenging experiences are when you are faced with high-conflict couples, and where there has been a very low level of trust, or suspicion about the other’s motives and actions. However, experience has taught me that you generally know when a couple has gone as far along the path as they can with mediation. It’s okay to know when the mediator needs to withdraw.
QU:
What do you enjoy most about working with Mediate UK?
The collegiality, the opportunity to learn from the other mediators, and the fact that they are all just such a nice bunch of people.
QU:
Five facts about me:
1. I am proficient in Greek and Afrikaans, speak passable French and a little Xhosa and Sotho.
2. I have lived on three continents
3. I swim and walk to keep fit
4. I have practiced Iyengar yoga for twenty years
5. I am listed in the credits of Michael Moore’s film “Bowling for Columbine”.

Read our reviews

I was very impressed from start to finish with the process. The ring back when I first enquired was quick and efficient and a slot was booked quickly. The mediator was very thorough and asked relevant questions and explained the process clearly to me. The follow up was also very quick. I got good value for money and was very pleased with the service I received.

It was a very good experience. Very approachable and clearly explained. Happy with the service provided.

Really helpful in facilitating difficult conversations and tackling hard issues.
