Ataraxy Meditation Training Foundation Courses


Ataraxy Training is a new training company that enables people to become family mediators with courses approved by the Family Mediation Council as a necessary first step to becoming an accredited family mediator. 

Nicholas von Benzon, director of Cheltenham Mediation Services, along with Macarena Manta, have created a brand new foundation course and are approved by the FMC. Here is a link to the FMC websites directory of approved trainers

The business name uses the word Ataraxy, which means "a state of freedom from emotional disturbance and anxiety; tranquillity” which perfectly aligns itself with the process of mediation, leading to positive outcomes.
