In the helping professions, supervision has been around for a long time. For some professions, such as counselling and psychotherapy, it is mandatory. Seen as separate from management supervision, it is a reflective space in which the skills of one professional are used in service of another to reflect on their practice, challenge, support and maintain ethical standards. Trust and being able to verbalise struggles, strengths and vulnerabilities are highly revered!
Gradually other professions have seen the value of such a space and are increasingly providing supervision for their staff within the public and private sectors.
We have many years between us of providing supervision in organisations from the public sector, universities, individual and group.
