Positive Solutions began in 1991 as the Community Mediation Service Tasmania dealing 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. In 2012 Positive Solutions became owners of ‘MW Plus’ Employee Assistance Programs EAP (Employee Assistance Provision) Counselling; EAP counselling is usually provided free to staff under a contract arrangement with the employer. The counselling is confidential, and your employer need not know who has come, nor any detail of the service (unless you specifically want us to provide a report). Counselling is short-term (3-4 sessions) and is designed to help you solve problems, meet challenges, and improve relationships. The contract with the employer usually includes counselling for your spouse/partner/dependent children if they want to access the service.
COVID 19 CHANGES TO SERVICE DELIVERY:
While Positive Solutions offices are currently closed, staff are continuing to offer all services via telephone and online platforms, and encourage clients to call to arrange consultations.
