Family Dispute Resolution (FDR) or Family Mediation
Family mediation is a structured process which helps parents discuss issues in a safe environment and put in place workable agreements for the future in the best interests of their children.
Initially each parent attends a confidential assessment with Rebecca so that she can:
(i) ensure that family mediation is suitable,
(ii)hear the history of the problems from each person's perspective,
(iii) get an understanding about what needs to be resolved, and
(iv)prepare you for the joint session
(v) provide you with targeted information to broaden your understanding of your family's issues.
At the joint session, Rebecca facilitates a constructive, child-focussed, and future-focussed conversation about the concerns you each have and your ideas for the future. More than one session may be required before final agreement so that you can go away and trial options for a period of time first.
