Mediator Support & Events

Solution Talk | Supporting Mediators


Professional mediation practice supervision is essential for anyone working in a professional capacity as a mediator, giving you the opportunity to offload and debrief when your work has impacted on you; either in a group or one to one session.

Typically our group meetings enable you to learn from each other, discuss your cases, consider a range of approaches and share your concerns, questions and successes with other professionals.

One to one sessions encourage reflection and discussion on best practice.

All supervision takes place in a confidential and safe environment and our supervisors are accredited annually by the College of Mediators.

Feedback from a Mediator regarding their Practice Supervisoin Support Session

Hi Jules, thank you for the supervision yesterday, it was great to talk through the very complex case with you. It has helped me to refocus on what is important in this case, to action plan going forward and has definitely made me look forward to the next steps with this family. I always look forward to sessions with you, as it helps so much with reflective practice and boosting my mediation practice

Feedback from a Mediation and Education Lead regarding their Practice Supervision Support Session

Your reminder of the purpose of supervision and your role; to challenge, encourage exploration and support. And then following this through, I appreciated your empathy and support (helping me to remember what I had done well) in equal measure with encouraging reflection and analysis, including challenging me to think of anything else I could have done or will do differently. I find you to be really encouraging as well as trusting that you will ensure I am really honest with myself on elements on which I could improve or consider"
