“I was introduced to Aneez as my mediator in a family matter. She was very patient. I felt I was being heard. She is also very knowledgeable and took the time to understand my feelings. I highly recommend her services.”
SK, Client in Toronto

“Aneez Khanani is one of the best trainers in mediation I have worked with. On top of excellent pedagogical skills, she has an amazing mastery of mediation techniques and tools, be it in commercial, matrimonial, family or inter-personal mediation.  Being a mediator herself, her training pattern is in congruence with fundamental mediation values such as benevolence, empathy and non-judgement.  Aneez has a long and deep experience in mediation and human psychology that give her that added value one looks for in a very competent trainer. Having called upon Aneez for 4 training sessions in the past 4 years for a total of 14 training days (and 50 trainees), I highly recommend Aneez as an excellent and very competent mediation trainer.”

Zarien Rajan-Badouraly, Chairperson National Conciliation and Arbitration Board (NCAB) for France

“Abbotsford Seniors Centre was fortunate to have Aneez Khanani an elder Mediator and Communications Expert here to present on the topic of mediation. Aneez explained the role of an elder mediator in a way that was relevant to our audience of seniors. This new approach to understanding and resolving potential “hot topics” within families was well received as was Aneez and her expertise.”
