FLiP FACULTY APPROVED FAMILY LAW SUPERVISOR - LESLEY EDELSTEIN
After studying psychology for seven years, I wanted to focus on the unique experiences of the individual, this is where my journey really began.
I qualified as a counselling psychotherapist specialising in supporting clients whose relationship had ended. I soon began reaching out to Family Law firms to deliver presentations about the journey their clients were on and how this may affect those who work with them.
Following my enthusiasm to share knowledge I became a tutor teaching counselling and psychotherapeutic practice up to level 6. The journey of self-discovery I witnessed whilst tutoring led me to study and qualify as a supervisor.
I have been working therapeutically with lawyers both junior and heads of departments and barristers whose personal and professional life has been affected by their work. Consequently, the rich supervisory relationship can only be seen as an oasis in the life of a family law practitioner.
My passion is to continue to develop the field of family law supervision, working collaboratively to decrease vicarious trauma and existential crises of many in the profession of family law. Therefore, enabling the practitioner to become energised and productive through the transformation brought about by supervision,
