Our Philosophy

Co-mediation

Co-mediation means that two or more mediators conduct the mediation process. Depending on your type of dispute, Amelia may recommend co-mediation to increase your chances of a successful outcome. Co-mediation is useful in multi-cultural, complex, multi-party or specialised disputes when co-mediators can complement each other with specific skills or experience. 

Confidentiality

Your privacy is always respected, and your communication is always privileged. All parties, including mediator and co-mediators, will sign a confidentiality agreement before mediation process starts. 

Transformational and Solution-Focused Approach

Amelia uses a transformational and solution-focused approach, but that does not imply that she will ignore the root of the conflict. She will help you and other parties to find the issues and explore them as much as possible, to then work on the solutions. 

Flexibility

It can be challenging to have all parties in the same room at the same time, so Amelia will work with you to find the most effective solution that works. For examppe, she can conduct mediation via video conferencing, or work after hours or on the weekends. Amelia is dedicated to finding the best solution for your unique situation.
