Nadia Delshad

My work as a couples mediator focuses on empowering disputants to resolve their conflicts and recognize each other’s needs and interests. For over 25 years I have experienced the privilege of working in Africa, Europe, Australia, and the United States of America, helping people from various cultural backgrounds deal with significant life transitions and relational challenges.

What you can expect from me as your couples mediator?

Help in identifying your goals, clarifying your interests, and taking into account any concerns you have. Provide effective communication tips. Reduce misunderstandings and reduce emotional intensity. Provide specific tools for problem-solving and overcoming obstacles. Develop effective co-parenting skills when children are involved. Provide resources that include clear and simple takeaways, outside-the-box problem-solving, and simple, actionable steps to keep you moving forward.

Make settlement meetings more effective and collaborative by facilitating communication.

I am actively involved with the Collaborative Law Alliance of New Hampshire, New Hampshire Conflict Resolution Association, International Academy of Collaborative Professionals (IACP), Massachusetts Collaborative Law Council, and Academy of Professional Family Mediators.

Clinical membership of the American Psychological Association, New Hampshire Psychological Association, New Hampshire Mental Health Counselors Association, American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists (AASECT), and American Society of Clinical Hypnosis.


At our first meeting, we will discuss my approach. It’s crucial that you feel comfortable to ask questions or raise any concerns during the process to ensure a successful client-mediator-coach relationship.

Clarity is key, and I’m here to help. During our collaboration, if you feel that it would be beneficial for you to seek additional assistance from other professionals, I will discuss this with you. In case such referrals are necessary, I will provide you with the names of appropriate professionals like psychotherapists and physicians.

I work based on the belief that couples can complete their divorce in an emotionally healthy way. Interacting and communicating with each other respectfully, honestly, and openly, can achieve a successful agreement.

Fees and Provisos

My fee is $200 per hour. This fee is applied to the time I spend on your behalf, whether it is with you individually or together, in a meeting with you and your attorneys, or conferring with your attorneys, as appropriate. Examples of professional time for which you will be billed include telephone calls, meetings, travel time, and correspondence (including email). Payments may be in cash or check made out to The Bedford Center for Couples PLLC. Credit card payments are accepted with a 2-3% fee added.

I will typically request a retainer of $3,000 unless arrangements are made otherwise. Every time I send a bill I will apply your retainer to the current amount due. If the retainer is exhausted, I will ask you to renew the retainer. Upon completion of our work, I will promptly refund any remaining balance.
