Sue Bronson is a mediator with over thirty-five years experience. She provides opportunities to improve communication and expand options to meet your needs.

Her training sessions offer theoretical understanding, provides the context to translate theory into practice, and stays focused on the heart of the matter. She encourages people to build on and integrate the knowledge and skills they bring. How you reach the result, is as important as the goal itself.

Mediation is a voluntary facilitated discussion where you share facts, acknowledge emotions, and work through difficulties, resulting in better decisions and a better relationship. I highlight opportunities to improve communication and choices that meets your needs. Core beliefs and values:
  • People are able to resolve their disputes when given a safe environment to discuss their similarities and differences.
  • Relationships are important. Some relationships continue with more understanding, others end more peacefully.
  • How you reach the result is as important as the goal itself. You take the lead as she keeps you focused on what is important to you.


Reasonable fees. Please call for discuss your individual needs and services available.
