Mediation refers to a voluntary and confidential process where an impartial third party, known as a mediator, helps individuals or parties in conflict to communicate, understand each other’s perspectives, and reach mutually acceptable solutions. Mediation is commonly used to resolve various disputes, including family disputes (such as divorce or child custody), workplace conflicts, neighborhood disputes, and more.
Mediation is seen as an alternative to going to court and can be a cost-effective and less adversarial way to resolve disputes. It allows the parties involved to have more control over the outcome and promotes a collaborative approach to finding solutions.
Mediation can take place in various settings, including private mediation firms, community mediation services, or within certain legal processes, like family court proceedings.
The process of mediation typically involves an initial assessment, joint and individual sessions with the mediator, negotiation, and, ideally, a mutually agreed-upon resolution. The mediator does not make decisions for the parties but facilitates their discussions and helps them find common ground.
Different organisations and institutions in the UK provide mediation services, and there are various accreditation and training programs for individuals who wish to become mediators. The goal of mediation is to help parties find a resolution that works for everyone involved while avoiding the often lengthy and expensive litigation process.
