Mediation

Positive Solutions offers professional mediation services for a range of different situations which may assist families, workplaces or communities in reaching mutually acceptable agreements.

Mediation is a process of dispute resolution in which a neutral third party (the mediator) assists two or more parties to help them negotiate an agreement about the dispute.

The mediators’ role is not to take sides, but to listen to both parties and assist them to look at their issues, develop options and reach an agreement that is acceptable to both parties.

Mediations are private and confidential and are conducted as informal discussions in a neutral environment.

Parties benefit from mediation in a number of ways:

  • they participate in the decision-making process (rather than having a Judge or Arbitrator make decisions for them);
  • Both parties can have their say and negotiate an agreement safely.
  • Mediation generally costs a lot less than going through the Court system.
  • In family mediation we encourage a process which prioritises the needs of your children
