Professional Supervision is an important aspect of ongoing training, development and improvement.  

I have been a Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner for 10 years now and I enjoy the work as much today as I did when I first trained.
As an adjunct to mediation, I also run a widely acclaimed Parenting Orders Program, the Circle of Security parenting program, a popular Step Family workshop, and a coaching program that supports mums and dads struggling to co-parent with someone who has narcissistic traits.
Family mediation is fraught with emotion and very high stakes.  Families are talking about the most important people in their life – their children.  
Many skills are needed in our toolbox, and professional supervision is a way to access other FDRP’s and the tools they bring to their practice.
Being able to debrief your mediations with other practitioners is not only valuable in a supervisory model but also enables you to listen to views of others and see your own mediations from a new perspective. 
Self reflection is but one way to improve and sometimes it’s easier to look back on our own work once we have had the opportunity to talk about it.

How does it work?

Who is this professional supervision for?

Lawyer Mediators: An opportunity to debrief outside your firm, with other mediators, not just lawyers

Family Mediators: Often issues are the same across mediations but how we manage them is usually different - the more tools the better; plus, family mediation is often quite emotional and managing our own triggers is important. Professional supervision can assist.

New Mediators: Be exposed to experienced practitioners with lots of tricks in their toolbox

Experienced Mediators: Regain a freshness to your practice while supporting new and emerging mediators
