Full Register of Supervisors

You can quickly find a supervisor near you via our interactive map. Bear in mind that with the discovery of video conferencing solutions such as Zoom during 2020 that you are, if you wish, able to access supervision online so geographic location may be less of a concern.

Choosing a family law supervisor

 

The following is the full list of our current approved members. While proximity may be important to you please also take time to view their profiles to fine the right person to work with you. 

We suggest that if you cannot decide between supervisors that you arrange to have a chat with those you like the look of to assist your decision. For an initial discussion please contact supervisors directly using the details that they have provided.
