Why train in mediation?

Mediation provides a range of skills that can be used with incredible effect within existing leadership roles, human resources, or indeed any role that involves dealing with staff or the public. It can help with complaints handling, grievance procedures, workplace conflict situations, peacekeeping and team buiilding.

Support your team

Improve relationships and dynamics within your team to strengthen your business. Conflict causes lost operational efficiency. Having trained conflict resolution practitioners in your teams will reduce conflict and increase profitability as well as improving morale.

Improve your business

Practical help for supporting customers, colleagues and external partners. Mediation skills can be used both formally and informally. Many businesses now build mediation into their policies and procedures to streamline processes in order to focus on profitability.

Develop yourself

Improve your personal and business relationships. Gain the skills to handle and resolve difficult conversations. We all encounter conflict at home, at work and at play. Learn how to deal with potentially inflammatory situations in a non-judgmental way.


Improve your management training

Better managers mean happier, more productive staff, satisfied customers and better partnerships. Mediation should be mandatory for all managers. Learn how to listen, to better understand and resolve conflict situations.



I was a student of LSM (Full mediation course) and passed in 2016. I wanted to write to you to let you know how beneficial the qualification has been and the success that it has helped generate to my career as a Mediator/Negotiator. When I finished the course, I took Judith's advice and in her words went "Looking for trouble" I promptly found some and within days I had successfully mediated a community issue which had arisen between the parish council and local community. After this initial success, I became a volunteer mediator and observed several mediations for a national company. I then left my role in mental health and found a job working with local communities. The role involved mediating disputes between housing associations and residents, neighborhood issues as well as dealing with internal company disputes. After a year in this role, I left to set up my own mediation and negotiation company (Vantage Mediation) and took on more civil and commercial work as well as training others in how to mediate and resolve issues. I am currently working in an award-winning mediation team as a crisis negotiator and mediator for Police services and local government. It all started with the LSM as the LSM Mediation course taught everything I needed to know to get started in the world of ADR. I wanted to let Both Judith and John know how the course shaped and changed my career.

The standard was excellent, the enthusiasm of Judith and Susie is infectious and I don't know how they fitted in all of the content.

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.
