Throughout my journey as a counsellor, and as a supervisor, I’ve uncovered many aspects of supervision that are so important in everyday practice.

Of course, the main reason that we engage with a good supervisor for is to discuss client work.

But I don’t believe that it is the only thing we need from our supervisory relationship.

I have set a high standard for myself as a supervisor as well as of what I should be getting from my own supervision.

I’ve collated all of this knowledge in this supervision programme.

This programme will help you

Decide whether you want to train as a supervisor

Make a more informed choice when selecting the person who will supervise your practice

The Theory

Session 1 – Overview of a supervision model

Here you will get an overview of the five theories that inform my supervision model, and why I find them important as you practice supervision.

Session 2 – Relationships

It’s important to take into account the different relationships involved in the supervisory process: there are 6 different points we’ll discuss in this session and the next one.

This model sets the scene for the next models, which are complementary.
