Mediation is a confidential and voluntary process that brings people in conflict (‘The Parties’) together and gives them an opportunity to talk about their differences in a
non-judgemental way with the help of a trained mediator.
The mediator does not act as a judge, lawyer or psychologist. Mediators don’t make decisions, offer legal advice or provide counselling. Through communication and understanding, mediators guide parties to an agreement.
I believe that conflict is a healthy part of community. When conflict is resolved effectively it can offer many benefits. IT can improve communication, clear up misunderstandings and, most importantly, help to build strong and lasting relationships with neighbours, friends, family members, co-workers, staff, clients, landlords/tenants, etc.
MEDIATION IS RIGHT FOR YOU IF:
YOU HAVE A NEIGHBOUR, FAMILY (EXCLUDING DIVORCE/CHILD CUSTODY), LANDLORD/TENANT, WORKPLACE CONFLICT
YOU WANT TO RESOLVE THE CONFLICT PEACEFULLY
YOU ARE LOOKING FOR HELP WITHOUT INVOLVING THE POLICE OR THE COURTS
YOU ARE WILLING TO SHARE YOUR SIDE OF THE STORY AND HEAR WHAT THE OTHER PARTY HAS TO SAY
