Supervision is a formal process of professional support and learning which enables individuals to develop knowledge and competence, assume responsibility for their own area of expertise and practice and enhance protection and safety of care in many issues that you might encounter through your work.
Supervision focuses on practice. It recognises and confirms good practice while challenging and changing beliefs and practices that do not deliver what they see for the client of the supervisee. It focuses on the client of the supervisee. This is contrasted with mentoring where the focus is on the individual development of the supervisee.
Some private organisations and individuals provide professional supervision services. It is up to individual mediators to choose their own supervisor and to discuss their supervision requirements with that supervisor.
