WHAT IS MEDIATION?
Simply put, mediators facilitate communication between parties in conflict without taking sides.
The aim of mediation is to help those parties (for example, a couple going through a divorce, or a business struggling with conflict between two or more key members of a team) reach a voluntary resolution to their dispute that is acceptable to each side. The solution should be fair to all and cost-effective.
The mediator manages the meetings but is not there to impose ideas, solutions or decisions or force a settlement of his or her own design, or provide legal advice to any of the parties involved, who are solely responsible for the ultimate resolution of the dispute.
In essence, mediators help those in dispute to communicate about the issues of concern to them, and help participants find solutions that are acceptable to everybody involved.
We provide a full range of family mediation services throughout the Surrey, Kent London and Hampshire areas. We can provide in person as well as on-line meetings - but we are available for Zoom meetings in all other locations.
