What is mediation?
Mediation is essentially a facilitated discussion with the intent of creating solutions and agreements that will work for the people involved. A collaborative approach takes the parties beyond disagreements of the past toward the resolution of issues today and maintaining relationships for the future.
Mediation works to maintain relationships and to seek solutions. Often mediation is less stressful, more cost effective and also timely for the people involved.
The types of issues able to be addressed are limitless. Typical issues addressed in the mediation process include relationships, separation and divorce, financial matters, agreements, contracts, work place, human resource, couples, family, parenting, neighbourhood, land and resource use, and community.
