Mediation helps couples discuss their issues without emotion and using a safe environment.
Nobody gets married thinking that they will divorce or separating but unfortunately it happens quite often.
It’s important to make sure this uncomfortable and upsetting situation is made as easy as possible. You can do this by having valuable support in the form of family mediation.
Let’s have a deeper look at how talking to people in general can benefit your life and the importance of mediation.
The importance of talking:
It’s quite troubling that 2/3 of people in the UK feel that they have nobody to talk to about their problems.
After all, a problem shared is a problem halved. Most people cite not knowing the right time or place to talk to somebody as the main reason for this.
Talking to people whether that be family/friends or a professional is nothing to be ashamed of.
Over 22% of people wait for the perfect time to talk to somebody about their issues.
There is no “perfect” time and if you wait around forever, it just isn’t going to happen.
You can change your life by talking to professionals.
Bottling things inside only needs to further problems, a conversation with the right person can actually change your life for the better.
Whether you are going through something mental health related or you are going through a painful breakup, if you talk about it, you are one step closer to happiness.
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.
