What is Mediation?

Mediation is a structured process whereby a neutral person helps communication between those in dispute to help them to understand each other better and for them to come up with solutions that are mutually agreed which will improve their relationship in the future.

The neutral person is usually a mediator who, in complete confidence, helps the parties explore ideas. They are a good listener who doesn’t look to apportion blame, take sides or pass judgement.

How mediation works

If you decide to give mediation a try, the mediator will arrange to see you for an initial meeting. This is your chance to talk through the issues, in complete confidence, and let the mediator know your feelings on these issues. The mediator will also meet the other party for the same reasons.

After this initial meeting the mediator will discuss the best way forward with you. This might involve further individual meetings or arranging a joint meeting with the other party at a neutral nearby venue. At a joint meeting the mediator will agree the ground rules of the meeting with you & the other party and make sure each of you has a chance to speak without interruption.

  • It is confidential & fair to both sides.
  • No-one is blamed.
