What is a pre-mediation session?
Pre-mediation sessions are meetings we hold with each party separately. These sessions help us to gather all the information we need, and to understand what the desired outcome is for each party. Sometimes, the desired outcome is actually the same on both sides, but the message has been lost in translation. This is common when tensions and emotions run high. On other occasions a compromise is needed, and we facilitate the communication that allows for good decision making.
