What is Mediaiton?

• becomes always more important as a closed door proceeding.

• is particularly effective where privacy is preferred and

• if the parties need a viable continuing relationship. • mediated conflict doesn’t get picked up by the media. Mediation-

• is not a group therapy,

• relationship is often repaired through the mediation process that focuses on identifying the interests and needs of each party’s position directing for a win/win solution. •  There is no room for compromises but consensus, only. Mediation-

• is a private and confidential process, and

• participation at every stage is completely voluntary. Mediation- is an alternative to costly court procedures. With this option, it is not a judge who rules over the future. Rather it is the conflicted parties who want to work on finding a solution together, saving a lot of time, money, and stressed nerves.


Like Mediator I am the neutral third party in the mediation. With the six-step mediation process, I help the parties to meet their mutual interests, and to find a consensus solution. 

Internal conflicts in businesses simmer generally under the surface and emerge into plain sight only slowly. Resentment in the workforce, frequent sick leave, and burn-out are the consequence, costing companies a lot of money.

I do my work with great respect towards the next, in my approach I apply to the Mediation Rules & Code of Conduct for Mediators.
