Stephanie Dowse

FDR Mediation | Preparation for Mediation

Stephanie has experience with health, women’s health, addictions, individual and couple counselling, family therapy, counselling in schools, and working with separating parents. Collectively, this adds up to nearly 20 years of clinical practice.

Ability to engage and inspire:
One of her key traits is to be able to get on with people of all ages and walks of life. Stephanie finds it unproductive to judge people and she is always able to find a strength or positive characteristic in anyone she has contact with or work with. This trait enables her to draw out the best in people. It also makes her successful as a mediator.
