Supervision is defined as:
“a joint endeavour in which a practitioner, with the help of a supervisor, attends to their clients, themselves as part of their client practitioner relationship and the wider ecological context, and by so doing improves the quality of their work, transforms their client relationships, continually develops themselves, their practice and the wider profession”Hawkins and McMahon (2020, p. 3)
At our supervision sessions, we prioritise your needs and goals as the supervisee. We understand that every therapist & minister has their unique challenges and aspirations, which is why we collaborate with you to establish an agenda that is tailored to meet your specific requirements. Whether you’re seeking guidance on a short-term basis or a longer-term therapeutic alignment, we’ll work with you to determine the best methodology for achieving success.
The balance between setting the agenda and empowering you to take ownership of your development depends on the modality and depth of presenting issues. We believe in a personalised approach that strikes the right balance between providing guidance and empowering you to take ownership of your growth. Our aim is to build a therapeutic alliance with you that fosters trust, mutual respect, and open communication.
Throughout the supervision process, we encourage you to reflect on your work from different viewpoints, helping you gain new insights and perspectives. By evaluating your progress and challenging any habitual patterns that may be holding you back, we aim to help you grow both personally and professionally. We use a balanced approach that combines encouragement with constructive feedback and challenge to help you overcome obstacles and achieve your full potential.
Our supervisory work is designed to support your growth and development as a therapist. We understand that the road to becoming a great therapist is a lifelong journey, and we’re here to support you every step of the way. Whether you’re just starting your career or looking to build on your existing skills, we’re here to help you achieve your goals.
