Welcome to New Landscape Family Mediation
Family Mediators Carolyn Hanes and Johnathan Pease have been helping divorcing/separating couples build new lives for over 20 years. Using family mediation, we will help you create stable, secure futures for yourselves and children as quickly as possible. We also recognise that this needs to be done without squandering your savings on lengthy and traumatic Court processes. In short, we understand that the cost of ending a relationship is already high enough.
At New Landscape Family Mediation in Essex, we will work closely with you to design a personalised solution based on the needs of you and your family that can be made into a legally binding agreement that is ratified by the Court. Whether you need to find the fairest and most sensible way to share your finances, work to create a positive and healthy co-parenting relationship following your separation or both, we can help at minimal cost. Contact the office on 01279 211657 or request a call back for more information or to arrange a personal, no obligation meeting with a mediator.
The Mediation Information Assessment Meeting (MIAM) is your opportunity to have a private and fully confidential meeting with a professional mediator.
Children and Parent mediation will help you and your former partner develop a clear, workable and lasting solution to co-parenting following your separation/divorce.

Understanding the behaviour of your spouse is often seen as one of the oldest mysteries of them all. Why do people do the things they do? Why do we sometimes behave in ways that are so obviously contrary to our own best interests when viewed from the eyes of the other? Well, the answer to[…]
When a couple separates, it is impossible to separate the love from the hate. You cannot simply turn off the long held affection for someone like switching off a tap. So there will be times when you ‘love to hate’ your ex and in the same breath ‘hate to love’. So what can be done?[…]
Divorce can be like opening Pandora’s Box. As Pandora’s Box was opened, out poured all the destructive evils of the world with it – in a desperate attempt to shut the box, Pandora could only do so when all but one thing had escaped into the ether – that one thing that lurked at the bottom[…]
