Understandably, one of the questions we're always asked is how much does mediation cost? As one of our core values is transparency, we have set out below our very simple cost structure which we hope will provide you with the information you need.


We are not the cheapest option and we never will be! Mediation is a fairly unregulated industry, and unfortunately there are plenty of service providers who claim to offer high quality mediation without the necessary skills and experience. All of our professional mediators are all regulated by the Civil Mediation Council and are highly experienced in their field. We offer a cost-effective professional mediation service with an impressive track record, both in mediating disputes and training new workplace mediators to a very high standard.


Whilst all mediations are different, the majority involve two parties, therefore the cost with one of our mediators would be £1,250 + VAT.


Where mediations are online there are no expenses incurred, therefore the only cost to the client is the mediation itself.


Where mediations are in-person we do charge expenses incurred, such as travel costs and accommodation where required. We always look to minimise these costs where possible and will only stay overnight if necessary.


The only other potential cost to consider for face-to-face mediations is the venue for the mediation - many organisations have rooms they can use, but if not then two rooms will need to be booked at a suitable venue such as a hotel or local office facilities. 


Much of the work we do is outside the scope of a mediation, eg facilitated conversations, complex investigations, HR coaching, etc.


In circumstances where less than a day is required (eg a HR Manager needs coaching through a scenario) we charge by the hour at the rates shown.


Where at least a day is required, it works out more cost-effective to charge by the day / proportion of the day. For example, if a group facilitated session took a total of 20 hours, we would charge 2.5 days at the relevant daily rate.


In terms of expenses, these are as described for a mediation. Online / virtual work does not incur any expenses, whereas in-person we charge travel costs and accommodation, etc where these are required.

Working Virtually and Face-to-Face

Before the world changed in 2020, we were already working with clients virtually due to the many benefits of doing so - especially when things are extremely urgent and it's difficult for people to be in the same venue. Although some situations must be dealt with in-person, sometimes customers choose a hybrid of virtual and face-to-face, and often they prefer one or the other. We're happy to discuss what works best for you and to chat through the benefits of each approach. 


If you'd like to know more about the services we offer, or you have a question, please don't hesitate to call or email us. Alternatively, complete the enquiry form opposite and we'll respond quickly.
