Rebuilding for the Sake of Lincoln

At the Family Mediation Trust, we are proud to share success stories that highlight the transformative power of our services. We recently had the privilege of assisting a father, whom we will refer to as Mark, as he embarked on his mediation journey.

When Mark initially approached us, he admitted to some hesitations. Misinformation and a sense of pride had clouded his perception of the mediation process, making him skeptical about its effectiveness. However, his perspective soon changed, thanks to the dedication of our team and the invaluable guidance of our mediator, Jane.

Mark, as a father who had been deeply involved in his son's life before the separation, found himself facing limited contact and an uncertain future. Mediation became the last viable option before the arduous legal route, which was not in the best interest of anyone involved.

As Mark engaged in the mediation process, he quickly realized that his assumptions about stumbling blocks and a one-sided process were unfounded. He marveled at the smoothness and professionalism of the service, reflecting, "Had I known how smooth and professional the service was, I would have contacted you immediately when the separation happened."

Jane, with her exceptional skill set, navigated the complexities of two battling adults who had lost sight of their son's needs amidst the emotional turmoil. Mark praised her ability to show compassion and understanding, acknowledging the challenge of bridging the gap between stubborn parents who couldn't agree on even the simplest matters.

Throughout the mediation sessions, Jane's guidance enabled Mark and his ex-partner, whom we'll refer to as Lucy, to recognize that their personal feelings and needs should not overshadow the well-being of their son, Lincoln. Together, they reoriented their focus, acknowledging that their child's happiness and balanced upbringing were paramount.

As the mediation progressed, Lincoln's transformation was evident. From an insecure and anxious boy, he regained his confidence and joy, reminiscent of the happier times before his parents' separation. Mark attributed this positive change to Jane's outstanding skills and understanding, acknowledging that without her help, they would still be struggling.

Mark expressed his confidence in the Family Mediation Trust's ability to secure positive outcomes for all parties involved. He thanked the entire team for their patience, understanding, and professionalism throughout the process, emphasizing the smooth and almost pleasant experience from the very beginning.

Looking ahead, Mark recognized that challenges may arise in the future, but he expressed a strong willingness to apply the lessons learned during mediation to overcome setbacks. Should the need arise, he affirmed his trust in the Family Mediation Trust and their ability to provide further guidance and support.

In conclusion, Mark wholeheartedly recommended the mediation process, acknowledging that his initial impressions were a far cry from the reality he experienced. He thanked the Family Mediation Trust for helping him and Lucy resolve their disputes concerning Lincoln's best interests.
