Please refer below to our list of UK Mediators who have been trained and accredited by CAOS Conflict Management in the provision of the CAOS Model of Mediation.
Please note that we train a lot of mediators but accreditation is only achieved by continuous commitment to reflective practice and development of the skills and discipline of providing the CAOS Model of Mediation.
Mediation is a personally challenging discipline and so taking time to reflect on and improve practice and acknowledge and deal with the personal challenges that arise from carrying out the role is essential if a Mediator is to be able provide an effective process for clients.
Therefore we do not endorse practitioners unless they illustrate a continued commitment to this reflective learning and personal development.
Unlike a lot of accreditations in the mediation field the CAOS Accreditation is not achieved by 'attending a course', we only accredit mediators who continually review and improve their practice and deepen their understanding of the process beyond training.

If you cannot find someone on our list of UK Mediators who operates in your geographical area, please contact us anyway as we may have details of other mediators who operate in your area.
If the mediators above do not have the type of dispute area listed that you are looking for mediation support with, please contact us anyway as mediation is a generic process that can assist in any area of dispute or relationship breakdown. We have listed the more common categorisations for its use but there is a wider scope for its application.
Other areas may include disagreements over a Will, social work settings, family group conference support, sports related conflict, 'medical mediation' which we would categorise under the NHS Mediation heading and others.
Please feel free to contact us if you are unsure.
