How does Mediation Work?

Mediation is a voluntary, confidential and empowering process where parties to a dispute can resolve their differences in a structured, yet informal, setting, with the guidance of an impartial mediator who does not take sides.

The whole process is completely confidential and is much quicker and cheaper than going to court.

Benefits of Mediation

  • Less costly than litigation.
  • Quicker than litigation.
  • More informal.
  • No win-lose.
  • Helps maintain relationships.
  • Outcome agreed together.

Next steps

If you think mediation might help you, then the next step is to contact us and tell us a little about your dispute. You can contact us in a number of different ways. Either call us on 01227 863026 or send us an e-mail at: mediationclinic@canterbury.ac.uk. We will respond to your enquiry as swiftly as possible.  

Once we have discussed your needs, and explained the mediation process to you, the next step will be to contact the other party in the dispute. We will only ever do this on your say so. Once they have also agreed to attend a suitable date for a meeting (s) will then be organised.
