Creative supervision uses different art mediums such as, drawing, writing, role play, or movement, to engage the senses and imagination in the reflective process, encouraging the supervisee to go beyond the formal demands of their professional role. This approach often promotes a new direction in their thinking, bringing about personal insight and ideas which would not have been accessed through verbal discussion alone. We then work together to find ways to integrate this new self-awareness and understanding into their professional practice. 

A session may begin with verbal dialogue, before deciding on an artistic medium which feels right to explore the presenting issue further. Time is given for reflection afterwards. Supervisees are often surprised at the results their creativity can bring, and how this can transform their working relationships.
