Why Choose Mediation?

Choosing Mediation
Everyone experiences conflict. Unresolved conflict is costly, stressful, time-consuming and can cause many other problems.
What is Mediation?
Mediation is a negotiation method in which an impartial third party, called a mediator, helps the parties to resolve their issues. Mediators facilitate communication between parties. They encourage the exchange of information and urge the parties to look at the problem from different points of view and to explore ideas for dispute resolution. The parties, not the mediator, ultimately make the decisions about the terms of their agreement.

About pacificpolicies

Mediation is the most satisfying work I've ever done. Helping people to find mutually acceptable resolutions to problems, even in longstanding and complex disputes, is an honour that I highly value and a responsibility that I take very seriously. I have a sliding scale fee schedule to ensure low income people and not-for profit organisations can access alternative dispute resolution and avoid costly court actions. I'm a member of the Canadian Bar Association, the ADR Institute of Canada (ADRIC), the British Columbia Arbitration and Mediation Institute (BCAMI) and registered on the Mediate BC Civil Mediators Roster: http://www.mediatebc.com/Find-a-Mediator/Mediator-Profile.aspx?RosterTypeId=1&MediatorId=402
