Conflict is normal, inevitable, and sometimes hard to deal with.

We know how to resolve it with mediation.

Disputes happen. Mostly, we can sort things out by talking, listening, compromising and collaborating. When we get stuck in our disputes, however, conflict can become stressful, costly, and distracting.

This is where UK Mediation comes in as the leading provider of mediation training. We train both individuals and groups in mediation skills, and provide external mediation services for those who want to resolve conflict quickly and without the need for formal action.

Our Founder and CEO, Dr. Mike Talbot, is a renowned mediator, trainer, and psychotherapist. Along with a great team at UK Mediation, Mike has developed a market-leading range of training courses and conflict resolution services.

We have extensive experience with different mediation scenarios, including workplace mediation, team mediation, and neighbourhood mediation. Let us show you how to take away the stress, expense, and distraction of having to deal with unresolved conflict.

“Advancing mediation practice by going deeper.”

When I started UK Mediation back in 1999, the last thing I wanted to do was to replicate what everyone else was doing. Having been a psychotherapist for quite a while, I thought, ‘Well, why not take what I already know about the underlying causes of conflict, and start resolving it from the inside out?’ So now I’ve got arguably the biggest and most successful mediation company around, and the idea seems to have worked!

The thing is that we struggle to negotiate our way through conflict because we’re so angry, afraid, or hurt that we find it hard not to let emotion get in the way of reason. Communication breaks down, and we get so wrapped up that we can scarcely remember how the argument even got started. By understanding these conflict processes far better, we can start to resolve all sorts of disputes much more effectively.

This is why we created our relational model of mediation, RE:TALK, which has arisen from 21 years of UK Mediation’s pioneering work, as well as lessons learned from conducting thousands of mediation cases. It aims to restore dialogue, repair relationships, and rebuild teams, and can also be adapted for online mediation with our RE:CONNECT model.
