The importance of talking in mediation
Why you might need family mediation
Mediation when you are going through a separation, is basically talking through the problems in your relationship with a third party. You can get together with your ex partner and a mediator to get everything out on the table. Getting everything out in the open is really important and making arrangements especially if you have children together, is vital at this time in your life. Down the line, mediation might help you become civil or even friends with your ex. It is so important to have your children see their parents getting on well, even if you are no longer in a relationship. Separating can be really difficult but before you pay big court costs, mediation could sort out your issues smoothly and for a cheaper price.
If you are talking to a mediator or somebody else in your life, the prospect of actually speaking can be difficult. It’s really important to start small and take things from the beginning. Try to speak calmly when you are having a conversation and if you need to, catch your breath before continuing. Be open and learn to trust the people you are talking to. Mediators are trying to help you and making sure they are fully informed on any situation is the best way to do this.
