What About Facilitation?

Sometimes what I have to offer may be described as facilitation rather than mediation. Facilitation is akin to convening or chairing a dialogue between parties, especially multiple parties, whereas mediation generally relates to negotiation between parties.

For the sake of simplicity I refer to myself as a mediator even although at times I work more as a facilitator.

For more information see:

What is the difference between mediation and facilitation?

Do I Mediate Outside Nelson?

I am a Nelson mediator, but also mediate throughout New Zealand, and overseas.

Although my mediating outside Nelson gives rise to travel expense, I am at times willing to absorb that expense.


I mediate either with, or without the involvement of lawyers.
