How Simon Mediation Works: Conflict makes us feel stuck. We can’t believe that the other person is behaving this way and we’re frustrated that nothing we do or say seems to help. Transformative Mediation works by opening up your options. In your Simon Mediation you’ll discover that there ARE things you can do to improve the situation. Your transformative mediator will provide you with patient, non-judgmental support that will help you find the approach that will serve you best. At the same time, the other party will receive support, making them less defensive and easier to deal with. Before you know it, you’ll discover that the other person isn’t quite as bad as they seem, or at the very least, you are much more capable of dealing with them than you thought. It’s very rare to find the sort of support that Simon Mediation provides, because others who try to help are distracted by their opinions about the law or their other biases. Simon Mediation-trained transformative mediators have mastered the art of enhancing a conversation so that both people feel better about the situation, both feel empowered to take responsibility and make decisions, and both get a better understanding of where the other person is coming from.
