Budget will increase mediation demand

May 4th, 2009|Other therapies, Workplace Counseling|0 Comments

According to experts, the dismal picture of the forthcoming financial year, as depicted by the Chancellor in this year’s Budget, is likely to lead to a large increase in litigation and, subsequently, to mediation too.

However, given the expense and time involved, going to court is not always the best way either to resolve a dispute or to continue a business relationship. An alternative resolution for disputes is mediation. A […]

Demand for mediation grows with recession

March 1st, 2009|Other therapies, Workplace Counseling|0 Comments

During a recession, many people are affected in a negative way.  Unemployment is rife with up to two million people currently out of work, and even those who are lucky enough to still have a job probably have a family member who is out of work or are worried about their own job.  Money worries are high and as a result, stressed out couples are likely to take it out on each other and on those around them.  With little money to spare, it can be difficult to spend quality time together too. As a result, mediation is in great demand.  Although […]
