What is mediation:
We specialise in mediation, which is the process through which those in conflict are supported to identify issues, establish common ground, generate options and reach agreement to resolve dispute.
The mediator acts impartially to facilitate positive and collaborative discussion between the parties in dispute, rather than give advice or make decisions for the participants.
