Testimonials

What our clients say?

I found the course to be a wonderful experience and I will miss attending it. I think one could study mediation for 30 years and still learn more. Initially, when doing the course, the thought of role-playing was so daunting. It’s so amazing to see and feel the progress and mindset shift around doing them. I am amazed at how I am learning in action. The main thing I have learnt is that my focus should be on supporting, unveiling, diffusing and facilitating people to uncover their truth without concentrating too much on the outcome...
A learner on the Certified Mediation Course
I was aware of the mediator’s warmth and kindness in how she presented. It struck me the importance of the neutrality of the role and the composure needed. It also struck me how the mediation space was an untangling of miscommunications, hurts and assumptions. I liked the way the process was broken down and could see the benefit of a structured, clear and friendly session.
