What People Say

"The Align Mediation Training was excellent – clear enough to make it understandable, yet challenging enough to make one think further than the workshop content. The pre-course reading material set the scene and the first-rate tutorials and practical sessions provided a comprehensive and balanced programme to help everyone learn quickly and in a fun environment. The key tutor, Steve, had an easy, and obviously knowledgeable style and he presented material in a way that made it entertaining and enjoyable. Harry and Paula supported Steve in the practical workshops, adding insights from their own knowledge and experience to complete the learning experience. The balance of theory and practical learning was delivered in a pragmatic manner with emphasis on ensuring that everyone got a maximum opportunity to be fully involved. The final assessment was challenging yet enjoyable, and fully tested what we had learnt. I’d thoroughly recommend Align Mediation to anyone thinking about becoming involved in mediation."

"Myself and my colleague Kath did the 5 day zoom mediation course.
The team delivering the course gained our trust from the morning of day one. We were guided through the week by Steve, an experienced mediator and trainer who brought years of real life practice to the training and created a safe and supportive environment for the week. Harry and Paula from Align joined at regular intervals to observe sessions and offer valuable feedback, insight and advice.
The course content included a lot of role play and group work done in break out rooms and Steve facilitated that effortlessly on Zoom. We felt the group size was perfect and allowed us to ask for individual support when needed but also learn from each other. An intense week but well worth it, be prepared to give the week to it and you won't regret it."

It allowed me to identify any weaknesses as well as my strengths which l could build on. I would recommend this training for those either just interested or planning a career in Mediation."

"In my opinion Align Mediation delivered a course that was absolutely fit for purpose. They delivered a fact and experience based syllabus professionally, using concise written material to support each days objectives. This, coupled with relevant multi-situational scenarios, equipped me and my colleagues with the necessary box of tools that we could select from to enable us to mediate in a competent and professional manner in confrontational situations. I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone considering Mediation as a discipline."

"I thoroughly enjoyed the course with Align Mediation and was amazed by how much I learnt in just a week. By practising what we had been taught through role play each step of the way, we were given a real taste of what it would be like to mediate in different case scenarios. The team at Align Mediation are very friendly, approachable and encouraging and I look forward to continuing my mediation journey with them."

"Having researched several mediation training providers, I chose to train with Align Mediation. The experience from pre-booking to qualifying was exceptional. Prior to me securing my place, Harry Thomas provided me with a detailed overview of the course structure and with the all-important after qualification considerations (e.g. CPD and CMC requirements). The course content itself was excellent. It was clearly designed to account for different learning styles so as to ensure everyone acquired the same level of knowledge. We were taught using role plays, group practice, observations and written theory. Everything was thorough, meaningful and I genuinely enjoyed my time on the course. I have no hesitation in recommending Align to anyone looking to qualify as mediator."

"As a litigation solicitor, I am often promoting the virtues of Mediation and, of course, we are obliged to consider it at all times before and during Court proceedings. Mediations are effective yet so relaxed, so what’s the secret? The skills of the mediator are the key. A completely different skill-set that left me thinking I was in totally the wrong place on the first day! My natural instinct was to cross-examine people. But, in a fun and interactive way, along with my fellow attendees, I honed the skills to mediate and am now an accredited civil/commercial mediator. Fabulous experience. Whatever your background, don’t hesitate, just do it!"
