Supervision details

Relational Supervision - With you on the journey

The 'relational' bit really means that I aim to support you on your own unique path, whether you work as a counsellor or psychotherapist, mediator or massage therapist. I bring my own unique skills, experience and personality to meet yours, and together we co-create a supportive working alliance.

I like the metaphor of going on a walk in the countryside to help describe how supervision with me works. Together we look at the map of possibilities of your aims and hopes for your work, and I help you get clearer (if that's needed) on where you'd like to go. I'm there to encourage you every step of the way, so that you can grow in confidence. I'm carrying a rucksack too, so I'm sharing the load of our provisions with you and your load feels lighter. I've gone on a lot of walks, so am familiar with what things to pack in the first place (especially the special treats to boost morale in those lower-ebb moments!). Along the way we can pause to re-orient ourselves, look at the map again and assess where we need to go next, and what the terrain ahead might look like. I help make sure you're looking after yourself, with pacing, water intake, etc. We both keep the destination in mind but also are aware of making the journey itself as enjoyable as possible. And you get to be witnessed in celebrating getting to the top, as we share that joy and satisfaction together. (After which of course there's always another hilltop just behind the one we've just climbed, so the journey continues on.)

"Bonnie has facilitated a safe space where I feel confident to bring all of myself and all of my work, knowing I will be met with compassion, acceptance, respect, support and challenge.  Our supervision sessions have helped me to maintain self-care, balance organisational demands and clarify my professional goals all whilst supporting and prioritising a wide range of clients with varying complexities. I experience her as a warm, energetic and skilled practitioner."  CM, Hospice Worker
