Mediation works because its affordable and a cost effective way that supports you in resolving disagreements in a way that is and feels fair by both parties. The general principles of mediation are that it is voluntary, confidential, impartial, neutral and is without prejudice.
We work with you to help you find a solution and reach agreement about how to tackle a particular situation.
The first meeting is for you alone. It will be a chance for you to explain your situation and talk about any worries you may have. The mediator will also give you information about the mediation process and what the next steps will be.
Work place Mediation
Disputes and conflicts within the workplace are a considerable drain on your energy, time and resources. Mediation offers a quick and practical alternative to resolving issues or having to live with distressing situations. Often in just one mediating meeting we can:
Help you resolve misunderstandings that have led to the dispute/conflict
Focus on what needs to happen to resolve matters
Put those concerned back in control to resolve their issue, rather than leaving it to the legal system to make a decision.
We will help couples focus on what is important within their family when they have made the decision to separate. It is a flexible process so it can be done in a way that is best for each couple. It is a safe place where you can express how you feel and identify your priorities for the future.
Talking to each other is not always easy and we can help you to resume communication effectively. This is especially important when you have children and will need to co-parent them in the future.
It is not the mediator’s role to suggest a solution, any decision made within mediation must be that of the parties. The mediator’s role is one of assistance and support.
