Counsellors and trainees

Have you noticed that there never seems to be any CPD out there aimed specifically at supervisors? We are both supervisors who love CPD and so we created our own (this workshop is also suitable for supervisors in training.)

This will be our fourth course for supervisors.  We did the first three in the room and we thought we’d try one on Zoom to see how popular it might be and whether people would welcome the opportunity to get together as supervisors to explore this element of our work in more depth.

We both believe that the supervisory relationship is fundamental to an effective supervision experience and for us to aid our supervisees in their development.

This workshop will give supervisors time to think and reflect on their relationships with supervisees and the process of supervision. It is also a great place to network with other supervisors and share your experiences in a friendly environment. This will be an experiential course but based on well-understood and researched theories of supervision. We utilise theories of integrative and person-centred supervision as well as other models such as Appreciative Inquiry and the 7 Eyed Model of Supervision devised by Robin Shohet and Peter Hawkins.

We will offer:

  • Time and space to think, reflect and simply be present.
  • Activities to promote reflection, to bring about insights and to explore with like-minded others the therapeutic and supervisory relationship. 

In this particular workshop, we will specifically look at:

  • What if we think our supervisee isn’t fit to practice? How do we handle this? What does not being fit to practice look like? How do we feel if we’re unsure about our supervisee’s capacity to be working? What action should we take?
  • Working with supervisees who don’t value supervision. Do you get the feeling they do supervision because they have to? Or they’re late, “forget”, are unprepared? Does it feel boring and stale?  
  • Space for sharing. This will be a small group and we facilitate in a way which is inclusive and nurturing of each other and our experience.

If there’s a particular area or topic you’d be interested in looking at, we’d be happy to hear your thoughts and suggestions. We’re able to be flexible in designing this workshop around what delegates are interested in exploring.
