Open your door to the mediator

Gary WebberMediation

The mediator is there to help. Don’t be frightened to have him or her in the room during your discussions. The whole point of the conversation being confidential is that the mediator can understand your thinking and help you to problem solve, reality test, think of new ideas etc. There are often times when it is better to have more space to think / discuss without the mediator in the room but it is generally better to include him or her.
