So, I regularly have people say “Oh I am happily married, I would never need your sevices” or “if I take your card or friend you on Facebook someone will think I need your services”.
To these people I have a few questions…
“What if a family member was divorcing, would you rather see them in court losing their savings or privately sorting out their differences?”
“What if you are struggling with your siblings over selling your dad’s house during the process of moving him into a care facility?”
“What if your son/daughter is in a new relationship with a partner that also has children…they are planning on moving in together. How will your grandchildren will be cared for?”
For all of the above situations a Family mediator could be amazingly helpful in creating transition plans and bridging the gaps in communication.
Life is about relationships, making connections, happiness…yes? I have devoted my practice to helping families transition their relationships during a time of stress. It is a very balanced and fair process that lets you stay in control. Staying focused on what really matters and helping you to move forward. What could be more positive than that?
I am divorced and had the unfortunate experience, cost and stress of going through the legal process during my life transition. After 9 years I can honestly say that I can provide a great deal of insight into a parenting plan. Issues that you will face early on in the transition as well as issues that may arise later.
Mediation is part of the solution, not part of the problem.
Having the knowledge that mediation exists may help you, a family member, friend or client in the future. Mediation really is your choice for POSITIVE change.
