Heather May. BACP Reg. Dip Couples Therapy.Dip Supervision with Soul
I view supervision as the crucible or container where the work with clients can be transformed.
There are of course crucial components of supervision which include contracting and the focus of the work as well as the connection between the supervision and the therapy work that the supervisee is doing with the client.
But as Page and Wosket describe -the heart of the supervision process is the space that opens up once the focus for the work has been established.
Within this space, the exploration of the relationship can happen and what is waiting to emerge will emerge. This feels like the space we can’t afford not to have even though the rush to know the answers and find a solution can be compelling at times.
This can be the space where the reflection and the creative imagination can be most free to wait to see what will be born, and where a soulful relationship can take root.
