Dr Mike Talbot

Meet our Founder

Transforming conflict, building dialogue, and maintaining people's relationships.

Mike is a highly-experienced psychotherapist, mediator, trainer, lecturer, and the founder of both EU Mediation and UK Mediation. With over 25 years’ experience in the conflict resolution field, Mike specialises in applying his knowledge of psychological processes to the resolution of interpersonal disputes.

Mike's unique approach to conflict resolution involves looking at the psychology behind why we get into conflict, how we behave when in dispute with others, and what we need from an impartial third party in order to help us to resolve our own issues.

Mike can advise on the best way to get to the heart of conflict, whether that means using our own expert mediation service, or having us come to you and train your delegates in conflict resolution. Mike has brought together a highly-skilled team of mediators and trainers, and helps to maintain our industry-leading quality standard with his personal expertise and ongoing supervision.

“As a mediator, I provide a safe, confidential, and neutral environment in which everyone can start to build better dialogue.”
