“I feel privileged that people allow me into their lives in this short, effective intervention known as mediation, to facilitate positive changes for them and their families”.
“Conflict is often a sign of wanting something to change but not having the tools or means to support that change”.
“Mediation provides a safe environment to be able to understand and hear from each other, which is something that may not have happened in a while”.
“I provide a safe place for you to explore what your future can look like; you decide the outcome of that future”.
“Being informed about your options assists you to be able to reach agreements that you feel confident about”.
“No one feels good when they are involved in unresolved, ongoing conflict. Taking steps to manage the disagreement in a positive way is beneficial for everyone’s wellbeing and is an ongoing life skill that will help improve your future relationships”
