In supervision we work together to build a safe space in an atmosphere of trust and transparency; in which we dare to fully explore all aspects and potentials of the human condition.
Reflective practice, challenge and support are corner stones to this work exploring whatever impacts on your practice with your clients/supervisees personal, professional, developmental and organisational.
In this space we sit in our experiences and allow those experiences to inform us, so that our service to others is the best it can be.
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.
We can offer group supervision for a number of people to share experience to develop understanding, knowledge, skills, resilience, and practical strategies to work safely and effectively. This draws on evidence based interventions and a theory base to meet clinical guidelines, offer best practice and support continuing professional development.
Group supervision benefits from the bringing together of many. Given the large amount of information likely to be generated by several people meeting together we can act as a facilitator to aid positive communication, regularly summarising what has been discussed and agreed and asking for participant feedback throughout and to conclude the meeting.
We can help you to create an atmosphere of trust and respect and a chance to speak and to be heard by negotiating ground rules, the purpose of meetings, the length and regularity of meetings, and roles within the meeting.
We are able to offer supervision sensitive to context e.g. in a ward, nursing home or community setting. We may explore specific or general practice based experience to build on successes and problem solve difficulties and challenges.
We have experience of working with a range of professional groups, including Nurses, Social Workers, Occupational Therapists, Psychologists and Doctors both within and alongside NHS services, or representatives of staff within organisations.
