What is Mediation

"I often find in mediation that with some assistance parents soon realise that there is more that unites them than that which divides them."

Why am I a mediator? I started my career in Family Law working from inside the Family Court legal system. During those 10 years I witnessed firsthand the disappointed expectations of parents desperately arguing over their children and others about financial matters. People in litigation tend to forget that when you commence Court proceedings you lose control over the outcome, because you are asking a Judge to make a decision about your children or your property. Rarely did I encounter two parties who were satisfied with their outcomes and never did I hear a person say they enjoyed the experience. It is that insight that motivates me to help people resolve their differences without the need to go to Court, remaining in control of their outcomes and reaching concluded agreements that are in the mutual best interests of their former partner, co-parent and their children.
