MEDIATION PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE SUPERVISION

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.

SUPPORT & EVENTS FEEDBACK

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"
