MEDIATION

Our mediators facilitate the mediation process by guiding the negotiations between two or more people experiencing conflict to assist them in arriving at mutually acceptable solutions. The mediator is objective and unbiased throughout the mediation process and ensures that everyone involved is given an equal opportunity to be heard and respond, providing that discussions are fair and balanced and helping each person identify their own needs, evaluate their options, and develop solutions to their problems. 

Benefits of mediation:

  • You remain in control of the outcome, not a judge or tribunal.

  • All issues between individuals, businesses, families or groups can be discussed and resolved, promoting communication and cooperation. 

  • It is quick, non-adversarial, informal, and builds relationships. 

  • It is cost-effective.

  • Mediation upskills people on how to negotiate. 

  • Mediation is confidential.

  • Mediation allows parties to resolve their issues within a familiar and non-threatening environment.

  • It is future-focused and provides the opportunity to maintain relationships, move forward and thrive.

Workplace Mediation

Your workplace mediator facilitates and enables two or more parties in conflict to have a productive and results-based conversation about the issues they are experiencing.

 

The goal is to reach a mutually agreeable agreement without further conflict and avoid getting derailed in debate. As your mediator, we are impartial and help direct you towards a resolution. We don’t make the decisions for you. We ensure that you are heard and safe and achieve a balanced outcome.

Community Mediation

There has been a significant increase in the request for support to resolve disputes experienced by community groups, community members, and volunteers. With volunteers playing a crucial part in supporting and running community organisations in Australia, these disputes must be managed appropriately to sustain a volunteer workforce.
