We understand that working with the public can be challenging and rewarding. It is important to have a confidential space to reflect and grow from these experiences, as well as learning from peers. The supervision space is also a place to learn and take contextual issues which can impact on your frontline work. You may be managing a team or staff member that struggles that you would like to refer to this service. Our supervision model has shown to be effective with frontline and managerial staff.
We provide supervision to a range of professionals and volunteers, in particular people in social care roles, in stressful environments, or in roles prone to burn-out. We also provide group and individual counselling and psychotherapy supervision. This service is delivered by our experienced and specifically trained practitioners.
The rate for individual supervision is £50 per hour and £20 per person for group supervision.
