Restorative Me; Connect, Reflect & Model


This programme was designed so that it would serve those who are advanced in their restorative training or brand new to the philosophy. I believe anyone who is interested in creating relational learning communities will love this course.

Restorative Me is for you if you are interested in:

Connecting to the key aspects of the restorative philosophy; the beliefs, values and principles. This is a guiding reservoir, a compass if you are advanced in or seeking to begin your own practice.

Reflecting in a deep way about your own practice, your restorative journey and yourself. This is aimed to support the essential on-going grappling with the restorative paradigm shift that I too am still voyaging and welcoming in.

Modelling the practices and ways of being in both your professional and personal life. This is about leadership and showing up as a restorative person in your workplace and beyond! .

Restorative Me aims to act as a guiding compass to support understanding, reflection and guided practice, all facilitated at a self-directed pace!

Look out for my Restorative Café; a virtual space where the Restorative Me community can connect and reflect with me and each other over a cuppa!

Frequently Asked Questions


When does the course start and finish?
The course starts now and you have access to it for 12 months! It is a completely self-paced online course.
Is this a certified course?
You will receive a certificate of completion when you engage with all of the content. This certificate may be used as part of your personal CPD hours at your principal's discretion.
How long will the course take to complete and what's in it?
This is not a definitively timed course. There are 60 videos to engage with which range from approx 90 seconds to 9 minutes: 14 Video Lessons, 14 Connect and Reflect Exercises, 14 Connect Quests, 4 Connect Check quizzes and numerous practical resources to make this course transferable to your learning communities. The Connect and Reflect activities will significantly vary on their time demand depending on how deeply you choose to engage with them. The Connect Quests are ways to breathe life into the lessons outlined and offer a scaffold and guide around your everyday practice and similar to the Connect Lessons, they were designed as compass for you to revisit continuously throughout your Restorative Me journey.
Can I get access to this course content after my year commitment?
Yes, there will be an option to continue your access to the videos should you wish to subscribe to do so at that time. The resources are downloadable and therefore available for your individual use at your own leisure.
Is this relevant if I have already done a face to face course?
Absolutely! Restorative Me is an immersive online experience. This course was designed so that it would serve those who are advanced in their restorative training or brand new to the philosophy. This course deepens the concepts and ideas introduced in the face to face, allowing us to unpack and attach our own meaning to them, while supporting us to integrate them into our everyday lives. If you enjoyed the courses, I think you will love Restorative Me - it is a wonderful foundation and reservoir to build, support and accelerate your understanding and practice.
Who should do a Restorative Me course?
I believe anyone who is interested in creating relational learning communities will love this course: 1. Connecting to the key aspects of the restorative philosophy; the beliefs, values and principles. This is a guiding reservoir, a compass if you are advanced in or seeking to begin your own practice. 2. Reflecting in a deep way about your own practice, your restorative journey and yourself. This is aimed to support the essential on-going grappling with the restorative paradigm shift that I too am still voyaging and welcoming in. 3. Modelling the practices and ways of being in both your professional and personal life. This is about leadership and showing up as a restorative person in your workplace and beyond!
Should I do Restorative Me before, after or instead of a face to face course?
Restorative Me is not a substitute for the face to face courses but it is a way to compliment them; to support your relationship with yourself and others. The face to face courses focus in community on the development of relational skills. They offer a gift of a group dynamic, the opportunity to ask questions, the focus on skills development through active methodologies and the games that are transferable to the classroom and cannot be developed individually online. But the deep reflection and continuous guidance cannot be facilitated in the one day face to face courses. I see them as a wonderful partnership, great pals to accompany your restorative journey! If you do Restorative Me before a face to face course, it offers the foundation to allow you to engage with the skills from an informed lens and to ask the difficult questions that may have emerged that you might be grappling with. If you do the course before Restorative Me you can contextualise the concepts explored and skills referred to in a concrete way when exploring the online space. Both arrangements work and offer different gifts!
