WHAT IS MEDIATION?
Mediation is a process in which
two (or more) people who are experiencing conflict
are assisted by an independent third party to:
discuss their differences more
identify possible ways of addressing their
core hopes and concerns; and
make agreements with each other about part
or all of the dispute, if they wish.
As an accredited mediator,
I don't act as a lawyer or a judge, nor do I
pressure anyone to "settle" a dispute if it
doesn't make sense to them to do so. However, I
can help you avoid the costs, stress and delay of
going to court (or of letting the conflict
fester). In mediation, people are often able to
improve their damaged relationships and find
creative solutions to protracted conflicts.
EXAMPLES OF MEDIATION
Because I don't give advice on
what the outcome should be, but rather use my
expertise to manage a process in which you can
develop your own solutions, I can help you with
disputes of all kinds.
You should consider mediation
within organisations, between:
or between employees and managers
and its customers or suppliers
members of a church or
or church agencies
business partners, or
members of a governing board or committee
