WHY CHOOSE MEDIATION?
Sometimes people believe that mediation is just another legal process or is only available within a legal process. This is not the case. Mediation can be effective when two or more people are unable to navigate or negotiate their way through their differences or issues to a mutually satisfying solution. A trained, facilitative mediator can provide an objective process to clarify the issues and create a safe place for effective communication between parties. This allows everyone to find their voice and listen to hear each other.
Mediation has other great benefits
Confidential and Supportive
All parties in a mediation process are able to voice their concerns, interests and needs in a secure environment (you’ll be in a confidential and private environment).
Each party benefits from working with a skilled impartial third party (they won't take sides).
There is a greater opportunity to retain an amiable and working relationship with the other people (because the process is respectful and productive).
Mediation allows you to reach mutually agreeable solutions (the parties have control over what happens and any solutions).
Mediation results in agreements that are based on fairness and longevity (it works).
Mediation can be less expensive and take less time than using the court system (you’ll save money and time).
Equipped for Future
You are often equipped to resolve future conflict through participation in the process (you'll learn stuff that really helps).
