Supervision focuses on sharing and enhancing your knowledge and skills to support your professional development and improving service delivery. Supervision is set at regular monthly intervals and can be supplemented on an additional ad hoc basis in cases of need. Current research and practice evidence suggests that effective supervisors are those who have the required clinical and expert knowledge to assist supervisees in their work, provide emotional support and who have the qualities to develop positive working relationships.
I have been supervising now since 2011. My core training is in integrative therapy but I have a person centred diploma in supervision. I think both core modalities enhance the supervision experience. I believe the central goals of supervision are: Promoting my supervisees; developmental growth through teaching and supporting my supervisee's knowledge and applied skills. I also see a key role in protecting the welfare of clients by ensuring that the clients the supervisee is working with are receiving high-quality professional services.
I can provide supervision on an individual basis to therapeutic practitioners, but also to groups within agencies and schools.
My services can be bought in to support agencies and schools on individual cases. I have worked on a consultancy basis for Local authorities, schools, and agencies.
