About Us

We are a Tasmanian not for profit with a vision to empower people to attain greater harmony.

About Us

For more than 30 years Positive Solutions has been providing support and assistance to individuals, couples, families, workplaces and communities across Tasmania.

Positive Solutions was incorporated under the name Community Mediation Service Tasmania Inc and was established as a pilot project in 1990 with seed money from the Peace Trust, Law Society of Tasmania and the Law Foundation. After some research and the development of a mediation model suitable for Tasmania, Positive Solutions opened for business in Hobart in April 1991. 

Mediations in the neighbourhood and workplace areas were carried out on a fee-for-service basis and with sponsorship from some local councils and State Government departments.

From these beginnings we have grown our service delivery from Hobart to across the state and expanded our services to include family mediation, counselling, workplace services, including employee assistance programs.

We are commitmented to enabling people to build personal pathways to enhance their wellbeing.

Our Values

Integrity: We believe in honest, professional and ethical management of all our cases

Equity: Our commitment to diversity, inclusion and equal opportunity informs everything we do, from client service delivery, to recruitment and staff training.

Respect and Compassion: The right of each individual to be treated with respect and compassion is a priority of our service delivery.

Empowerment: We believe in building relationships where people can feel comfortable, discuss their feeelings and needs and support and ecourage their involvement in descision making.

Our services are welcoming and inclusive for everyone regardless of cultural background, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, or family structure.

We acknowledge the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the Traditional Owners of the lands and waterways of Australia. We support Aboriginal people’s right to self-determination and culturally safe services.

Our People

We couldn’t do what we do without the dedication and commitment of our talented team of staff and board members.

Our talented staff may be just starting their career, or are onto their PhD or master’s degree, however everyone has a passion for learning, growing and a commitment to improving the lives of our clients. Our team is made up of diverse individuals with qualifications in counselling, psychology, social work, mediation, rehabilitation counselling, conflict management, supervision and management.

Positive Solutions is an Incorporated Association and is overseen by a dedicated volunteer Board. For further information about our Board please click here.
