Testimonials & Feedback

Outstanding feedback

We value feedback from both delegates and our external reviewers - and all delegates are required to provide candid thoughts at the end of the course. Wherever we go, we are consistently delighted by the excellent feedback we receive from each course, a representative selection of which historically we are pleased to share below. Perhaps the best we can say is that more than 50% of our course members come from the personal recommendations of our alumni. If you would like to speak to one or more, just ask: email london@schoolofmediation.org

The course was fantastic, a great learning experience and the fact that something so intense was so enjoyable is down to Judith, Tessa, Kelly and Steve.

An excellent course, very intense but enjoyable. We were encouraged throughout.

Kate Lovett, Psychiatrist

A huge "Thank You" for a marvellous week. It really was one of the most incredible and rewarding personal and professional experiences.

Carolyn Tyson, Chartered Clinical Psychologist & Medico-Legal Expert

It is rare, in my experience, for every attendee to come away with an entirely positive experience of a gruelling week of work, but that is the sense I have from speaking to all the other attendees. That is down to the skill and personalities of the organisers. I shall be recommending LSM to any of my colleagues who are interested in becoming mediators – although I promise not to tell them all the details of what awaits them: ignorance is bliss!

Seamus Sweeny, Barrister, Parklane Plowden Chambers

A very demanding but exhilarating course thanks to our very experienced trainers. My training with LSM was challenging but thoroughly enjoyable and how best to use one’s newly acquired mediation skills. Both tutors made a point of spending time with their pupils answering questions and concerns. All in all First class training!

Sue Holmes, Partner, Smith & Williamson LLP

The course was extremely well delivered by highly experienced and effective trainers who evidently knew their subject intimately and fully understood how to teach; an excellent course which was huge fun, professionally delivered and personally enlightening. I would strongly recommend the LSM mediation course for anyone considering becoming a mediator.

Commodore Jake Moores OBE, Royal Navy

An outstanding week of challenge and learning… I enjoyed the whole event immensely.
