Moniar runs 'Medra' in same town and they offer help to old people gardening services etc they are nice guys but no mediators - could people get confused?

Definitely something with mediation in the title.

You can still use us in a 'Shameless' type picture to illustrate what you do, though

on a boringly serious note

why not *your surname* mediation services?

If I were looking for a mediator, I would avoid those with clever titles.. I'd be looking for someone serious. Also something people can spell and absolutely no punctuation as you can't use that in a web address

Yup. I agree with that.

Or the name of your farm.

Yes, that's a must-have.

I wondered about that, but Horgan Mediation doesn't really sound (or look) that attractive.

We were warned by the trainers not to do this, or to 'practice' at our home addresses for a variety of reasons which, when explained to me, made perfect sense.

Yes, that's what I was thinking too. I rather Like Cardigan Bay Mediation as the bay stretches right up and down the west Wales coast so covers the whole area I would like to practice in. The only comment I have received about that suggestion is that it makes it rather localised if I want to branch out across the UK...but that doesn't especially bother me as I have no immediate plans for world domination...

I'm still quite keen on DawnMK's suggestion of Phoenix Mediation. There are Phoenix Mediation trainers in the USA, but that shouldn't be a problem. However, there is another Phoenix Mediation based in Southport which is a shame - but then I mused over calling it Phoenix Mediation (West Wales) to distinguish it - or does that sound like a branch of the Southport version?

I do quite like that idea...but wouldn't want to infer that I'm a Welsh speaker.

Of all the 'serious' suggestions I like Cardigan Bay Mediation the best. CBM isn't an acronym for anything awful, is it?

Cardigan Mediation has a comfortable appeal.

I have researched it mochyn, and although it's short for all sorts of organisations, there's nothing sinister or pornographic in its association that I can see.
