Conflict Coaching

We have trained 15 of our mediators in Conflict Coaching and we now offer this as a service. This can be extremely helpful where one party wishes to mediate, but the other party is not willing to engage with the process.

In those circumstances, our trained conflict coaches (who are also mediators) can meet or speak with the party who wants to mediate. They will take them through a process to help them consider what they could do to alter the way they deal with the issues, even though the other party is not involved. Conflict coaching helps parties to understand what strengths they might have from similar or even different experiences which might mean that they could deal with the current issues in a different way. As with mediation, our conflict coaches will not suggest or recommend solutions, but help the person work out what their options are, and what they would like to do.

We have had really positive feedback from parties where we have already provided conflict coaching. It really can help break the cycle of conflict between neighbours and families, which ultimately saves stress, time and energy for everyone.

Please let us know if you would like more information about this service.
