Professional Certified Mediator St Davids

Circle Mediation Consulting and Resolutions Philosophy

At Circle Mediation Consulting and Resolutions we believe that Trust, Respect, Caring and Good Communication are the four main pillars of positive relationships. When people believe they are trusted, respected, cared for and have good communication with others they thrive, while creating an environment where everyone feels safe to share, problem-solve and collaborate. ​

We believe that caring is the most important pillar of positive relationships. When people show others that they care it builds trust, respect and leads to good communication.

Our mediation process is based off of this principle. At the outset of the mediation process we complete individual intakes to assess good faith and a willingness to participate in the process. Participation in a mediation process from a position of good faith and caring is the biggest decision disputing parties will make.

We aim to create an environment of caring, respect and trust to facilitate good communication. Once these pillars have been established between the parties the only thing left to do is put in the work with a neutral and impartial third party and come up with a creative plan to meet everyone's needs.

We can help you with this.
