Northern Tasmania
Mediation and Dispute Resolution

Positive Solutions began in 1991 as the Community Mediation Service Tasmania". At that time Positive Solutions dealt primarily with neighbourhood and community disputes.
In 1996 we expanded our services to include family and separation mediation as a result of receiving funding from the Federal Attorney-General. This funding has continued and extends to Launceston and the East Coast.

The services Positive Solutions provides includes:

Family Mediation:

Family mediation for Parenting and/or Property issues

Counselling for Separating Families and Couples

Please Note:

As of the 15th of June 2020, Positive Solutions has re-instated face to face appointments, and welcome all new enquiries and current clients back to their offices.
