Couple of points:
Mediators are, generally, a complete waste of money. It's better to attend a joint settlement meeting lawyer to lawyer. It's usually a lot quicker cheaper, although I accept there can be the odd exception where a mediator might assist.
Settlement meetings are, by their nature, exercises in negotiation and compromise and are therefore' without prejudice'. If you can't get an agreement at a settlement meeting, you walk away and what was discussed can't be referred to. If you do settle, you've got a binding compromise which you can rely on, unless e.g. your action needs court approval because one party is under a disability.
