Supervision

Supervision is a joint endeavour in which a practitioner, with the help of a supervisor, attends to their clients, themselves as part of their client practitioner relationships and the wider systemic context, and by so doing improves the quality of their work, transforms their client relationships, continuously develops themselves, their practice and the wider profession.”  (Hawkins P. &Shohet R. 2012, P.5)

I’m an experienced and qualified supervisor, providing guidance and support for psychotherapists, counsellors and other caring professionals.

Some of the work includes:

– Giving support

– Educating

– Managing responsibilities

– Teaching and holding ethics and boundaries

– Supporting in the workplace, managers and colleagues

– Supporting management of business

Of all the aspects of supervision both structured, personal and in the supervision models, having time to reflect and absorb the learning and to look at what could be improved, done differently or changed is very important
