Family Matters is delighted to announce that Stuart Hanson has successfully completed the portfolio route to accreditation and is now Family Mediation Council accredited. Stuart is now able to carry out legally aided and private mediations.
Juliette Dalrymple, who was Stuart’s professional practice consultant said:
“Stuart has worked very hard to achieve his accreditation. He travelled from Leeds to Doncaster to increase his experience and knowledge of mediation, which is an indication of his determination and commitment”
“Trying to find an organisation to work with to gain experience as a family mediator can be incredibly hard. Also, as a trainee, you need two different mediators in the mediation room, as this is where the true learning happens. Family Matters offers an apprenticeship, which I took up, and which gave me the experience I needed to develop as a mediator and the constructive criticism that every learner needs. Observing the different styles of mediation has been invaluable and the support and camaraderie outstanding. Thank you Family Matters.”
