For me as a law graduate, mediator and communication trainer, social competence is one of the most important – if not the most important – competence of our time. From the family to the business enterprise, from the school to politics – again and again, studies show the close association between communication and success. I am motivated because I know from experience that attentive mediation makes it possible to achieve mutual understanding and sustainable solutions. Ultimately, this common process brings great relief to all involved.
I am personally committed to promoting the idea of mediation in our society and of bringing people closer, of helping them to connect. If humans are to live together peacefully – even when they have different opinions – connective relationships are of fundamental importance. They develop on the basis of us really listening – without being judgemental – even before we put our own position into words. Even if we are not in agreement with one another.
To begin with, this sometimes seems difficult and the procedure is confused with not standing one’s ground. But it is possible to connect even when opinions differ. I see my task as to support this process and to provide the parties with the necessary skills.
The end of a mediation sees the restoration of communication and a constructive solution that all can live with.
Life is not a problem that has to be solved but a reality that has to be experienced.Buddha
State registered Mediator
Mediations with (partial) settlement
State-funded Co-Mediations according to §39c FLAG
Some companies offer their staff the possibility of taking advantage of mediation – anonymously and on an informal basis. This option (“standby mediation”) is a proven way of preventing conflicts from being left unacknowledged or even unnoticed. In this context, my particular experience helps to focus on the important factors of gender and diversity. I am happy to help my mediation clients with practical and up-to-date solutions, online mediations for example, which bring the additional bonus of being environmentally friendly. And I particularly like conducting mediations in English.
