Our Co-Mediation Team.

“Could a greater miracle take place than for us to look through each other’s eyes for an instant?”
– Henry David Thoreau

The Mediation Group (TMG) encompasses other mediation professionals who assist in co-mediations.

A co-mediation is when there are two experienced and qualified mediators in the room assisting and supporting the mediation process. This is typically best practice and used frequently at TMG.

Co-mediations at The Mediation Group are typically used for Divorce and Family Mediation, Child Focused/Informed Mediation and Property Mediation. If you require other services provided by TMG including Communication Coaching, Couple Coaching and Pre-Mediation Coaching, these will all be conducted by Kate White and won’t include a second professional.
