About Focus Family Mediation

Focus Family Mediation Sheffield was established in 1993 when we were part of the family team of a major Sheffield law firm. During this time we built up an enviable reputation for the quality of our service to clients. Focus Family Mediation was established in 2011 as an independent mediation business.

Carmel Doyle who leads the practice is a solicitor. She is a member of Resolution which is an organisation specifically for lawyers and mediators dealing with family issues. Carmel is also a member of the Family Mediators Association and a trained Collaborative Lawyer.

Carmel is fully accredited by the Legal Aid Agency to conduct mediations funded by Legal Aid. Not all mediators have this higher level of accreditation.

At Focus Family Mediation in Sheffield, all our mediators are trained in Direct Consultation with children during the mediation process.

Covid-19 Update

We wish to reassure all our clients that Focus Family Mediation is still open for business as we are able to continue delivering our mediation services remotely.

This means that until further notice our Mediation Informations & Assessment Meetings (MIAMs) and mediation sessions will be conducted via online video connections such as Teams, FaceTime Video, WhatsApp Video or Zoom and, in certain circumstances, telephone.

Please call us if you would like more information about how this works or if you would like to check whether you may or may not qualify for legal aid to cover the cost of a remote meeting.
