About us

Who are UK Mediation?

Founded in 1999 by Dr Mike Talbot, UK Mediation has come to be recognised as the pioneering thought leader in mediation and mediation training.

Based in the United Kingdom and operating all over the world, UK Mediation uses only the most experienced mediators and adult educators: resolving disputes for people or training them how to do it for themselves. Our particular areas of expertise are workplace mediation and neighbourhood mediation, and we’ve worked with hundreds of businesses and trained thousands of individuals, either on one of our market-leading public courses, or in-house at your location.

We are mediation specialists. We understand how and why mediation works, we are experts in training and qualifying mediators, and we are passionate about what we do.

Why work with UK Mediation?

Trained to excel

All of our mediators have received the highest level of training, both in mediation and in adult education. Who better to train you than a mediator trained in education? Not only that but, between them, our mediators have trained in law, HR, psychotherapy, and psychology.

Experience counts

We have been around since 1999 and, over that time, we have had plenty of opportunity to find the best way to resolve disputes. All of our mediators have been practising for years and have worked on hundreds of cases, meaning you can always be sure that you will receive a pair of steady hands.


Whether you train with us or engage our services, we don’t wash our hands of you when we are done. We have an aftercare system in place to check up on you and see how things are going, and offer free lifetime support for all of our learners.

Tailored service

You can find our most popular services and courses on our website, but we also offer a tailored service. We know that each of our clients differ in their needs and we are proud to offer the flexibility required to provide you with exactly what you’re looking for. More about our tailored in-house training.

Unparalleled accreditations

We know that a lot of mediators are throwing accreditations around like they are going out of fashion. We keep it simple: we have all of the accreditations you would expect and are the only mediation company to carry the Investors in People and ISO:9001 awards. More about our accreditations.
