Supervision is a reflective process, which supports you in your work.
A supervision group provides a safe space for you to explore your work-related issues. As a new practitioner, this is particularly valuable as you can gain much from others’ experience and bring along your own concerns to discuss. As an experienced practitioner, it is a chance to reflect on what has worked well for you and what you might like to change in the future, as well as ongoing client/practice issues.
Working in groups provides an excellent opportunity to share experiences, and I hope that you will feel inspired and recharged as a result of the experience.
Ongoing commitment to this reflective process is encouraged for you to gain the most from it. We aim for a cohesive, consistent and supportive group and so we recommend attendance at as many sessions as possible during the year.

"In choosing to help, where our role is to pay attention to someone else's needs, we are entering into a relationship that is different to the normal and everyday. There are times when it barely seems worthwhile, perhaps because we are battling against the odds, or because the client is ungrateful, or because we feel drained and have seemingly nothing left to give. At times like this it is easy to keep one's head down, to "get on with it" and not take time to reflect. At times like this supervision can be very important...It can give us the chance to engage in the search for new options, to discover the learning that often emerges.... and to get support"
