Pip assists you with “mind over matter” issues, because if you mind, it matters.
What is Mediation

Mediation is a structured, transparent process during which the willing participants commit to resolve their dispute or conflict themselves under the guidance of a neutral mediator, which is most often confidential in nature and where agreed upon, written rules govern. Participation in Mediation with Pip N. Smits is only possibly after signing a Mediation Agreement, which warrants confidentiality. As an expert professional Pip will ask the participants information about the content of the task and she will share what they can expect of her and of the process itself.

Mediation has been a popular alternative process to resolve conflicts and disputes for many years in the United States of America. In The Netherlands this form of “alternative dispute resolution” (“ADR”) is finally getting more attention these past years. Mediation is a great alternative dispute resolution because instead of having a judge decide the outcome of the conflict, the participants decide the outcome themselves. Mediation allows the participants to pull the strings and to reach the best solution to their conflict.

Why Mediation

A court case is very expensive and time consuming and the result is unpredictable. However, Mediation offers the opportunity to reach a decision oneself and not to have the outcome or solution depend on the judge, arbiter, or other third party. Many disputes are rooted in miscommunication, misunderstanding or lack of communication. Mediation offers parties a safe and confidential environment in which these issues can be addressed, discussed and ultimately resolved.

In the role of Mediator Pip is a process facilitator and a communication corrector. The participants themselves make the decisions during this process, they present their own arguments, explore all possibilities themselves and they reach a solution of their conflict. The parties’ autonomy is key during this process. Mediation is a road the parties will travel which is completely designed by them and for them.
