Client & Professional Testimonials
I have been discharged as the child’s Guardian ad litem so there is no need to update me on mediation. I am aware all the parties felt the last session was really beneficial. Hopefully, all family members can now move forward.
Good luck with your continued work.
Other Professional: I have friends who used your service when their marriage broke down and they found it very supportive – they have young twins and as a result of using FMNI, we can all meet up together with the parent’s new partners along as well! What a result for their children!
‘’I just want to say well done, I feared this couple would become entrenched in court and your service prevented that, I have no hesitation in recommending FMNI to others’

(Comments from clients mother in a shuttle case – power imbalance –her daughter was unable to make decisions about the future of her children, mediation helped her find her voice)
