Jane Cooke, trauma therapist
Qualified clinical, consultative supervisor -using reflective and creative approaches to support you in your client work.
Counsellors and psychotherapists are required to haven supervision by most professional bodies.
Other practitioners will find value in regular or one-off supervision to look st their responses to clients - for example those people who seem to be stuck, or who evoke a difficult ration in you, or when you have bene faced with a difficult disclosure.
Workers in other settings, such as those who do 1:1 care or support work or who work in challenging managerial or other roles find the experience of external consultative supervision supportive and developmental.
I have many years experience supervising staff in a variety of roles and have designed and delivered short courses on supervision to new managers. This combined with my background training in social work and my long experience of working in supporting collective and self-advocacy/participation in learning disability and mental health services has given me a thorough grounding in applying supervision models to support workers, encourage reflective practice and facilitate transformation.
