Without a doubt, one of the best things about running a coworking space is meeting the members and finding out what they do. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
One of the most unique professions is family mediation … something Jasmin Newman hopes no-one will ever need. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Jasmin helps families navigate the stressful process of separation with lots of love and understanding, so that they can reach an amicable solution that works for their family. I recently asked Jasmin a few questions about her business: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Q: What is ‘Jasmin Newman Mediation‘ and why did you start your own business?⠀⠀⠀⠀
I provide Family Dispute Resolution services for separating parents. I wanted to provide a child-focused dispute resolution service that gave practical advice and hands on support, while meeting the needs of the what is considered fair and equitable in family law. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Q: Why did you get into the family mediation industry?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I wanted to help parents resolve their own disputes, rather than relying on the already over-burdened family courts. I am a passionate advocate for a less adversarial family law system and I believe that the only way to do this is to bring families together in an open, supportive environment. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Q: What do you love about the work you do the most?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The most consistent thing I do is spend time listening to peoples’ stories. Sometimes offloading and talking about all the aspects you’re finding difficult is all you need to move forward. It helps tremendously to feel heard and validated and in turn, this reminds me that my job changes lives. This is really important to me and such a special part of my job.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Jasmin also runs two online courses: ‘Parenting After Separation’ & ‘Breaking the Cycle of Conflict’. Find out more about Jasmin’s business, Jasmin Newman Mediation.
