  • Why Mediation?

Here are 5 quick reasons to use mediation to resolve your dispute.
  • Quicker results

Compared to litigation, mediation provides much faster results so that you can move forward with your life. As private mediators, we can guarantee that we can see you and commence the mediation process within a week of you contacting us.
  • Convenience

We are based at Edgecliff in Sydney’s East but also have rooms available in the Sutherland Shire, Cremorne, Gordon and the Sydney CBD. When working with workplace clients we can conduct mediation sessions on site when requested.


  • No cookie cutter solutions

Agreements are completely unique to you and your specific circumstances. There are no “standard” agreements that are used. Everyone is different.
  • You decide, not the court

By choosing to mediate, you will have more influence on the final outcome and any agreements that are reached. A third party does not make decisions that impact you directly, through negotiation and collaboration you remain in control of the outcome.
  • Cost effective, saving you money

Getting involved in a protracted legal battle will cost many tens of thousands of dollars whereas the mediation process will be a fraction of the cost. You will save yourself money, time, frustration and heartache when you decide to mediate.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

  • “Without a doubt you have saved us each tens of thousands of dollars in a legal battle and I know our kids are going to be better off too. Thank you for your time, and professionalism and most of all for helping us reach an agreement we can all live with.”
    I would not hesitate to recommend your firm to family and friends.

  • Thanks Saranne – you and Gloria have both been so understanding and caring and I am so relieved we reached a settlement today. We can move onto the next chapter of our lives now with a firm plan in place for our kids.

  • It has been a pleasure to deal with you both – thank you for your support and professionalism. We’ll see you in four months time for our next session to review our agreement.

  • Many thanks for today’s session. I honestly don’t know how you do it day in and day out. It’s been a stressful time but I am relieved that with your help we have been able to get things sorted outside of Court.
    I didn’t think we were going to be able to sit across the table from each other. Things between my ex and I have been really bad. But we actually made a lot of progress, so thank you!

  • “I feel so liberated, I finally got the chance to say the things I have wanted to say for so long and it happened in a calm and safe environment. I know we had to focus on the future but there were some things from the past that needed to be addressed and dealt with first before we could start negotiating and planning”

  • “The mediation process was a really useful one in that both employees are now working well together and that the working environment and relationships have returned to normal – thank you for your assistance and expertise in this matter”
