I have a Level 6 Certificate in Supervision with the CPCAB. I use The Hawkins & Shohet Seven Eyed Process model. This model is relational because it focuses on the relationships between client, therapist and supervisor. The "Seven Eyed Model"of supervision is called such because it recommends seven areas of focus for exploration in supervision.
Supervision is to provide a means of support, ongoing learning and professional development for counsellors and other health care providers. It gives us a chance to stand back and reflect, establish a good relationship by using an ethical framework which helps promote trust and boundaries. A place to feel valued and to be understood in a non judgemental environment with empathy of each Individual's situation. Working together and by doing so congruently, honestly and openly which opens up space for our client's to grow.
Supervision is a valuable way of "checking in' and supporting and ensuring counsellors stay grounded, develop their knowledge as well as focus on self- care to avoid "burnout".
