How is Mediation Provided?

Mediations require an individual session (pre-mediation) with each party before proceeding to a joint session, where the needs of both parties are explored. It sometimes involves two mediators (male and female) (one a counsellor and the other a family lawyer) and can be delivered in a variety of ways:

  • face-to-face - in this instance all parties to the dispute meet and discuss the issues.
  • shuttle mediation - in this instance the mediator(s) travel back and forth between the disputing parties to attempt to seek a resolution to the issues under dispute.
