Relationship Mediation is for those who wish to restore harmony to fractured relationships, to keep their relationships intact, to work out whether they will or will not separate or to help couples to make crucial, robust decisions, and separate peacefully and respectfully. Early intervention is vital, before disputes have caused irreparable damage.
For those who have decided to separate or divorce, please go to our webpage for Family Dispute Resolution, Parenting Plans, Property and Financial Dispute Resolution
Staying together… or not?
Relationship Mediation is similar to workplace mediation, in that each party is assisted to resolve their differences and get back to more productive and harmonious employment, except that with relationship mediation parties are assisted to get back to the business of restoring, repairing, rebuilding and enjoying their important relationships. If through the process you decide that you really are not able to stay together, we can assist you to separate with as little stress as possible.
Relationship Mediation assists parties to communicate their needs effectively.
Without mediation, miscommunication can cause the real issues to be unrecognised or avoided, and the familiar antagonistic themes to be endlessly replayed.
Mediation helps parties to identify and clarify their issues, keep communication productive and moving forward, instead of around and around, or backwards, and generate new options.
With an effective, structured model that helps people to make robust agreements,
Mediation has proven to be the fastest, most effective, convenient and economically sound way to resolve conflict.
Parties learn how to avoid the enormous damage conflict causes to relationships and children.
Relationship Mediation is available for those who wish to confidentially discuss their issues in their home or at one of our neutral venues.
InterMEDIATE Dispute Management is available during and after hours 7 days a week
Relationship Mediation will help each party to understand the needs of each other, how to relate fairly, respectfully and will help recognise any power imbalance to allow an equal voice to each party. This reduces the conflict, tension and emotional trauma normally associated with the mismanagement of disputes in relationships.
Relationship Mediation will help couples to make robust decisions they can live with now and in the future. Relationship Mediation is hugely valuable in helping couples to communicate their needs and issues, and to understand what it is like for the other person in the relationship.
