What is mediation?
Mediation is a form of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), whereby the mediator facilitates the process in which two or more parties attempt to reach a mutual agreement.
Most civil, commercial and workplace mediations can be concluded in one day with a high success rate. Family mediation can take between one to six sessions.
Mediation as a form of conflict resolution can be used for individuals or multi party / group conflicts.
Here at Centre for Resolution in Worcester, our mediation process is not one that is pressured or rushed, allowing you to make clear decisions.
Mediation is becoming more popular and is one of the quickest growing forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). The courts are also actively encouraging this form of conflict resolution as it is time and cost-effective, it empowers individuals and gives them control of the outcome.
Mediation can be used before, during or after court proceedings.
Our trained professional mediators work within the EU Code of Conduct, are non-judgmental and remain impartial, ensuring that all parties who engage in alternative dispute resolution access a professional service.
Centre for Resolution’s mediators understand the importance of listening and give you the necessary space to reflect on what is being said.
The mediator can talk to both sides separately or together, if both parties prefer.
Our mediators are not here to give any advice, including legal advice, although we do suggest if you want to have legal representatives or support from other specialists to make those enquiries.
