Preparing for Mediation

Maximise the potential of mediation to help you resolve the conflict

Participating in family dispute resolution or mediation to resolve conflicts and divorce settlements can be intimidating and daunting. Engaging in coaching specifically designed to help you prepare for the mediation process is one way you can reduce your stress levels and maximise your ability to work towards your goals.

If you are about go through mediation to resolve a property settlement, parenting plan, neighbourhood or workplace dispute, conflict coaching will provide you with a safe and confidential environment to examine and reflect on the issue or situation to gain insight and confidence. By gaining clarity into the dispute you will be able to broaden your understanding of the conflict dynamics and explore options and choices that will help you move forward.

Discover how to engage effectively in the process

Preparing for mediation also involves increasing your ability to deal with challenging and confronting behaviours from others. You will learn how to reconceptualise mediation as an opportunity rather than a battle and have an opportunity to work through the issues to reduce the desire to defend or attack in response to the other party in mediation.

Working through the “trigger” and “hot button” issues related to the dispute will also help you reduce the intensity of the emotions so that you can communicate your emotions without communicating emotionally and reduce your stress levels and the effect of conflict on your health and well being.

Through mediation preparation you can also learn tools to help you overcome fears and remain grounded and calm during mediation so that you will be able to respond and communicate in a way that will be consistent with your desired outcomes.

Coaching also allows you to practice effective communication and prepare for the other parties comments and reactions.
