Pre-Mediation Coach Training

With the new divorce laws, more couples are opting for mediation. However, for many couples, there is a power imbalance, which, with the help of a specialist coach, can be addressed by learning the skills necessary to make better informed decisions. Many mediators are now working with coaches to have coach-supported mediation. Qualifying as a Pre-Mediation Coach, will allow you to help and support your clients through their mediation.

These skills will help clients cope regardless of the other person’s behaviour.
