Family mediation and conflict coaching: how to build a happy family life?

An ongoing conflict with your loved ones can leave you feeling drained, overwhelmed and stuck. Maintaining healthy family relationships can be challenging, yet it is so important for your well-being and support system. Do you want to reconnect with your family members? Do you want to have less arguments and spend more fun family time? My confidential service provides a safe space to explore any issues without feeling judged. You can book a mix of individual sessions and joint sessions, or only individual sessions (conflict coaching).

 

Gain more clarity regarding your feelings and what would improve the situation for you. Through open-ended questions and creative exercises, I empower you to find your own solutions. Adolescents/young people can take part in the process more… Please note that mediation is voluntary; I rely on parties actively wanting to engage in this process.

What are the benefits of mediation?

  • More open communication: share what is truly in your heart and better understand others

  • Move forward: find solutions that suit your particular situation

  • Improve your mental health by lifting a heavy burden

  • Increased self-awareness: better manage your triggers and emotions to avoid escalation of arguments

  • Better understanding of common interests: feel more like a family unit

  • Clear rules and routines in the house give more space for fun family time 

  • Having fewer draining discussions leaves you with more energy in your job and hobbies etc.

  • Home as a place of safety and support
