Supervision details

Supervision is critical for everyone who works with people, in whatever capacity- it helps is make sense of what might be happening in our work, helps make better decisions, and ultimately helps us learn and grow as practitioners.  I have a number of qualifications in supervision from varying fields, and have been directly supervising people within therapeutic fields for six years.

Although I draw on a number of modalities to support supervisees in their work, primarily I use TA. I started supervising in my social work roles, and continue to promote safety, and protection. 

I tend to use research and theoretical frameworks in supervision to frame our exploration of the work, as well as outlining established practical tools for future work.

If you would like further information, or to discuss engaging with structured supervision, please make contact below.
