Professional Practice Consultancy and
Supervision or Professional Practice Consultancy is a key part of quality
assurance in a number of professions including counselling, psychology and
coaching. In mediation it is emerging as an expectation amongst
organisations who are concerned about regulation and practice standards.
There are debates amongst mediators whether our field is a profession or a
way of life. This is not the place for that debate but whichever way we use
our craft we will want to be at the top of our game by learning from
insights into how we are doing and how we can improve.
The way we continually improve our practice is to regularly step back from
the fray, review how we are doing and develop ways to do better. Easier
said than done but this is where we can help. We are experienced in
mediation and coaching and trained in supervision skills.
We provide professional practice consultancy that supporst mediators to
reflect on practice and improve skills. Our approach is flexible and can
work with regular or ad-hoc meetings.
Ways we can help:
We can provide our services in person, at our premises or a location of
your choice, over the phone or online. Often a combination of these works
well. The service may be on a contracted basis with goals which are
worked on over time or a more informal plan which you trigger as and
when you feel support would be of use. We have a significant library of
mediation and dispute resolution books and as part of our contracted
consultancy we make these available for reference.

incompatibilities but a normal process by which socially valuable
differences register themselves for the enrichment of all concerned.
