Roy recognises that there is a spectrum of outcomes that parties look for in mediation ranging from the solution focused (settlement) through to relational repair. Accordingly, he uses the process flexibly and sensitively, seeking to put parties in control and engage them as the experts in the room. With experience of mediation across a wide variety of contexts, Roy has a strongly facilitative style which he supplements with techniques drawn from other mediation models.
