I also offer non-managerial supervision to other practitioners working in challenging environments.
Supervision is one of the most significant supports we have in our work, enabling us to explore concerns, recognise achievements and gain the benefits of reflective practice for integrating new learning.
I believe I offer the kind of supervision I like to receive, which is warm and supportive, but where I know I will be challenged appropriately when necessary. Having a protected space each month where I can review and consider my practice keeps me able to offer the best service I can to clients, and to my own supervisees.
Supervision is one of the main ways in which we can tie ourselves into the profession and also be appropriately transparent in the context of work which is by its nature private and confidential, keeping us resourceful and ethical.
