Questions our mediators are usually asked
‘‘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. Relationship & Family mediation can take between one to six sessions.
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.
‘‘Why should I use a mediator?’’
Our trained professional mediators 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.
‘‘How will mediation benefit me?’’
- It is a more cost-effective method of reaching an agreement than going to court
- It is completely confidential
- An agreement is reached faster with mediation than it is in court
- The participants are in control of the outcome
- It can take place at a location and time that suits the participants
- The process is voluntary allowing either of the participants to terminate the mediation at any time
- The process is without prejudice so if settlement is not reached case can still go to court without other party using it as evidence
- Both parties share the cost

‘‘Is mediation a regulated method of alternative dispute resolution?’’
There are regulatory membership bodies that mediators register for including the Family Mediation Council, Civil Mediation Council, College of Mediators, Resolution, The Law Society, Family Mediators Association & National Family Mediation. These bodies ensure that mediation standards and best practice are being upheld by mediators from a wide range of backgrounds including family, civil, workplace, Special Educational Needs & Disability. All mediators must abide by the code of conduct/code of practice, must have been on extensive training, and have sufficient experience in the field to be registered with the regulatory membership bodies. All mediators in their membership must also complete a minimum set of continued professional development every year. So, although there isn’t statutory regulation of mediators, all of our mediators follow the guidance and best practice of the regulatory bodies.
