Pre-Mediation Coaching

Are you and your spouse deciding on whether or not to go to mediation?

Is your attorney recommending mediation instead of a costly court battle?

Is the court in your state requiring mediation before going in front of the judge in your divorce case?

Whatever the reason you may be choosing mediation or being required to go to mediation, do you know what to expect?

Most people have never been to mediation before.

Even if you know a little bit about the process, it can be scary and intimidating.

But does it work?

That depends – and it depends on many factors.

I’ve conducted many divorce and parenting plan mediations and I see so many successes, but there are some failures, and here is what can help prevent that.

What would it be like to walk into your mediation and know what to expect, feel confident and in control of your emotions, and have a plan and list of proposals?

Sounds good, but what if you’re dealing with a spouse who has a history of:

    • Using intimidation to get what they want
    • Blaming others for the problem – spouse, attorney, court, etc.
    • Not taking responsibility for their actions
    • Focusing on the past
    • All-or-nothing thinking

If one of the parties in mediation has these tendencies, then we are dealing with a high-conflict personality and this creates a challenging environment for mediation.

But it is possible to reach settlement agreements even with a challenging partner.

As a New Ways for Families Licensed Provider for Pre-Mediation Coaching, I can help you go to mediation with the skills necessary to deal with the business of divorce.

Pre-mediation coaching is a skills based program that helps you to understand everyone’s role in the mediation, how to have realistic expectations, prepare you for trouble spots, and reduce anxiety and fears.
