Online Mediation

Traditional mediation involves face to face contact however, in many situations, this is neither ideal or practical. You may feel nervous or anxious about mediation and being in the same room as the person you are mediating with may seem too difficult at the moment.

Online mediation also reduces the need for travel and taking time off work and it can be scheduled at times which are convenient for you.

Online Mediation FAQs

Do we need special software or technical knowledge?

No. You just need an electronic device with internet access, sound capability and a camera. A smartphone, tablet or computer will work.

How do we know who is in the room during online mediation if we are not in the same place?

As part of the agreement to mediate, we require all the people involved be identified and that each of them agrees not to record any part of the session. We rely on parties to participate fully and be honest, just like in traditional mediation.

Is there a way I can meditate online without seeing my ex-partner?

Yes. We are able to offer shuttle mediation by using online ‘breakout rooms’. You and your ex-partner do not see or speak to each other, and the mediator/s moves between rooms.
