If you’re an individual or organisation looking for a supervisor to support your work, I offer supervision to experienced and trainee Psychotherapists, Counsellors, Complementary Therapists, Coaches, HR/Training professionals and staff teams.
My approach is informed by mindfulness and I endeavour to create a contemplative space where we will hold the work with a compassionate heart.
Each supervision contract is unique, however, for guidance, the following outlines what structure a session might take:
- Agreeing the supervision contract and practicals
- Creating space to check in
- Case presentation of work or a live issue at work and its impact
- Finding the key questions – reflection & exploration of what’s arising
- Exploring parallel processes
- Integration, future action & close
There are several reasons why supervision is professionally important:
Demonstrating sound quality assurance practices is essential for ethical practice. The Supervisor’s role is to facilitate, support and challenge, to help explore what might otherwise stay hidden in the work.
Continuous ‘live’ learning process. An opportunity for valuable feedback and space for professionals to reflect. Whilst it is an especially important learning space for newly trained therapists, it is equally rich for experienced and senior professionals.
Where work may be demanding, supervision provides emotional support and supports a therapist explore avenues for continued resilience to avoid burnout.
I offer individual and group supervision. The way I practice supervision is through reflective dialogue and mindfulness informed enquiry on what is evoked in the present moment. This is a creative process that can include a number of ways of working.
