The tools we use in mediation

Many people ask us the question how does mediation work? Some people confuse mediation with counselling. Two main points of note:-

  1. Mediation is not counselling.
  2. People who go through the process are not always conducting a separation.

Mediators use various tools during the process. The primary tool used by mediators is a flipchart. This might seem a bit basic but the truth is that flipcharts are a very effective tools in mediation. It facilitates the parties and the mediators alike in visualising the problems and the solutions. Many mediators will use a flip chart to draw out a road map for parties at the start of the mediation.
