Rhiannon Thomas is a FAMAC accrediated mediator. She believes that the traditional litigation process is not suited to resolving family law issues and that mediation can be an empowering process for a couple or family in conflict.
She is able to mediate any or all of the problems that arise when couples separate, such as:
decisions about separation or divorce
arrangements which concern the children, such as drawing up a parenting plan which would include contact and care arrangements
maintenance – child and spousal
housing and property
In support of her application for accreditation as a FAMAC mediator, one of her co-mediators wrote:
'Rhiannon has a confident and containing mediation style. I believe her temperament is naturally suited to mediation. She is warm and approachable.'

Rhiannon is currently extending her practice to become a commercial and property mediator. She believes that mediation can be used in many diverse areas of law and hopes to be part of a more innovative and meaningful process for dealing with disputes.
