ABOUT

ABOUT BREATHING SPACE MEDIATION

Breathing Space Mediation came into being as Sara began to explore the fusion of her therapeutic skills with her legal knowledge and background.

The journey has led to the development of a Breathing Space Mediation where experienced expert mediators can help you to resolve the untangling of a past relationship enabling you to create something new and different in the future.

The dandelion logo represents the ending of the old and the beginning of something new. We believe strongly that mediation can be the catalyst for positive change.  Breathing Space Mediation is a space in which people have a chance to pause. To explore how they can create something different for themselves and their family as they move through and beyond the separation process.

Sara`s core life values are creativity, kindness, compassion and mindfulness. These values are woven into the fabric of Breathing Space Mediation. They guide how we approach every aspect of the services we offer. As we work online we can provide you with mediation services where ever you live in the country or internationally if required.

So, we hope you feel that you know a little more about us but if you would like to know more about the business do not hesitate to contact us. Below is a little about the team.
