Move forward positively
Our facilitation services help clients resolve differences without the chaos and financial expense which accompanies a drawn-out legal process.
It is in the interest of couples to work through issues rather than litigate.
Long term conflict, lack of communication, lack of trust and lack of understanding are very common barriers to an earlier settlement. Our process is designed to overcome these problems.
We believe in:
- Early determination of issues
- Planning for steps to be taken
- Interest based discussions
- Clarity of facts, wants and needs
- Understanding the big picture and priorities
- Identifying and analysing options
- Realistic solutions
- Implementation of agreements
We eliminate surprises and misunderstandings.
We work to our client's time line, not the courts.
We do not avoid conflict but manage our client's way through it.
We believe in positive outcomes.
“I have known Paul for about 3 years. He helped me during a difficult time and some very low moments and I am very grateful. I believe I am now “better not bitter” and very pleased to recommend him and his firm” (Paul)
“Thank you for being my mediator, you were so helpful and supportive during a difficult time. I appreciate your professionalism and the care you took during the mediation. I found you to be very calming, and great personality, and would highly recommend your services to anyone seeking mediation. I not only saw you as my mediator but a person I trusted. I will treasure that.” (Varsha)
“I found Michelle to be totally professional and empathetic during the mediation. Her ability to focus on the best outcome for all parties is the only reason the mediation ended successfully” (Michelle)
