I found Access Mediation Services’s mediators very helpful. They even accommodated my busy work schedule and only contacted me at times which were convenient.

We had Ryan as a mediator, he was understanding, patient, professional and very easy to talk to. If you are thinking about it don’t hesitate. Couldn’t recommend enough.

The questions clients ask us most
‘‘Can the person I am in dispute with refuse to attend mediation?’’
The short answer is yes, they can. However, our mediators are trained to explore all options with both parties to ensure that mediation is the suitable resolution method.
‘‘Do I need a webcam for online mediation?’’
No, you don’t need a webcam to use our online mediation services. We use online webinar platforms that don’t require the use of webcams. All you will need is a phone, tablet or laptop with a built-in camera and good signal. We do also have the option of audio only mediation, in which instance you will need access to a telephone and have good signal.
‘‘Who can use online mediation?’’
Anyone can use our online mediation services. The service is beneficial for those who have commitments including work, if logistically it is not suitable for face to face mediation to take place, or if either participant has a disability and face to face mediation would be inaccessible.
There are many reasons why people come to our Online Mediation Service. For example:
- Allegations in the workplace of bullying, discrimination and harassment
- Disputes amongst colleagues and teams
- Disputes amongst managers and decision makers, no matter what level they are
- Disputes between service provider and customer
- Professional & Medical Negligence
- Access refusal in relation to disability
- Disputes in regard to reasonable adjustments & discrimination
Our online mediation process
The process of online mediation allows participants and the mediator to discuss issues together, either via online video call or audio call.
Before coming together for joint meetings with yourself and the person you are in dispute with, you will attend a first meeting with the mediator so they can gain an understanding of your views and what you would like to gain from mediation. The other participant would also attend a first meeting.
Online mediation enables us to provide an effective platform to resolve your dispute in a quicker and more convenient way.
We can provide online mediation for a range of settings including the workplace, in civil matters and also disability related matters.
The main aim of mediation is to encourage effective communication between the participants who are in dispute to enable them to see each other’s points of view and to start generating solutions to the issue at hand.
The mediator’s role is not one to provide advice or share their opinion or cast judgment on participants views.
Please book a FREE CONSULTATION with one of our mediators. The mediator will then book you in for your first meeting.
