About Us

LKW Family Mediation was founded in 2013 by Louisa Whitney.  Louisa was a family law solicitor, as well as a family mediator.  She found that her work as a mediator was able to offer clients a more constructive and cost effective option for settlement that really focussed on the needs of their children.  As a result of this Louisa decided to practise solely as a mediator going forwards and set up LKW Family Mediation.  She brings her knowledge from practising family law for over 10 years, to her mediation work.  This means that that she is able to offer all clients a huge wealth of information that assists them in finding a resolution that works for them.

Louisa’s approach to mediation is hugely flexible and she believes that the process should be tweaked to make it work best for each individual couple.  Louisa is able to mediate in any family dispute – whether it concerns children or money issues or both.   Our offices are based in Dorking where there is convenient parking for clients.  Dorking is well placed in Surrey as it is around 15 minutes from the M25 and A3.  The station is served by trains from London Victoria, London Waterloo, Horsham, Gatwick, Reading and Guildford.   From 2018 we will be able to offer mediation online so please contact us if you feel this would be helpful to you.  This can assist where it is logistically or geographically difficult for the both parties to meet at our office in Dorking.  Please contact us for further details.

Here is a video made by Louisa explaining more about her approach to mediation, and why she’s so passionate about the benefits of mediation.
