What mediation is and its benefits :-Mediation Aberdeen


The Benefits of Mediation

Mediation is a method for repairing relationships when there is a conflict or discourse
Mediation is conducted by a neutral third party (a “mediator”). The mediator is unbiased. This indicates that they take no side. They are there to assist all parties in finding a solution on which they can all agree.
It is not about determining who was right or wrong in the past, but rather how to agree on future collaboration.
Mediation is a rapid method for resolving disputes and is:

  • more informal
  • flexible
  • voluntary
  • confidential
  • not often legally binding

How can mediation help?

Mediation facilitates the repair of relationships by:

  • finding solutions on which both parties may agree
  • increasing communication
  • enabling all parties to have power over the final agreement

There are several advantages to mediation. For instance, mediation can assist in:

  • decrease anxiety
  • avoiding formal procedures, such as court
  • prohibit further disagreement

A confidential and voluntary procedure

You are not required to participate in mediation if you choose not to. Mediation is confidential and voluntary. The mediator will negotiate with the parties how and what information can be provided outside of the mediation. If an agreement is not reached, all statements made during mediation are confidential.

Prior to considering the use of mediation, it is recommended to attempt to address the issue amicably.

If the issue cannot be settled amicably, mediation might be the next step. Mediation can be used at any point during a dispute, however it is preferable to initiate it as soon as feasible. The sooner the conflict is resolved, the less likely it is that things will worsen.
