Frequently Asked Questions

Q:What does Mediation Involve?

A: Our mediator will chat to each person separately, first. What are you looking to achieve? How is the other person stopping you? What would you like to say to her? He will show you how to say what you want to say in a firm, non-confrontational way. Experience tells us that the process promotes a mutual desire to find a way forward and this is recorded for each person to take away.

Q: Why do you offer mentoring?

A:  Mentoring just means that we are there for you as and when required in order to keep things on track at home or in business.

Q: What if we cannot reach agreement?

A: The chances are that for whatever reason there are things happening that make agreement impossible. The process sometimes demonstrates this ,narrows the issues and if litigation remains necessary, at least it is more focussed. It is not uncommon for agreement on the issue to be reached later, building on the mediation.

Q: How confidential is the service?

A: Absolutely. Anything and everything in the mediation is strictly confidential between your mediator and you. Nothing can nor will be disclosed to any other person unless both persons in the mediation consent in writing ( obviously accepting anything that might pose a physical threat to the other person).

Q: Is it stressful?

A: The purpose of the process is to eliminate stress and to replace it with a sense of being in control.

Law & Family Mediation

From April 2014 it is a legal requirement that any applicant in Family Proceedings brought before the court will attend a MIAM (mediation information assessment meeting) with a mediator to determine whether the case is suitable for mediation rather than taking up expensive court time. Marcia Mediation in Life believes that by far the majority of cases should be suitable.
