Supervision

Supervision

Good supervision is paramount when working in the helping professions. freshfocus will provide you with an independent, confidential space to explore the effectiveness of your working relationships, dynamics, obstacles and successes.

My personal definition of supervision is…"Supervision is a safe and professional alliance to oversee with two hearts, trained minds and life experiences,  for the exploration of effectiveness and safe practice in the therapeutic relationship".

I have over 8 years qualified supervision experience. With an Integrative Humanistic approach, underpinned with supervision models Inskipp and Proctors’ Tasks of Supervision Model: Normative, Formative and Restorative and Hawkins and Shohets’ 7 Eyed Supervision Model: Focus on the client, interventions, relationship, therapist process, supervisory relationship, supervisor process and wider context, we can reflect on the multi-dimensional levels of your diverse client work; process ethical dilemmas; ensure safe-guarding is in place; and identify developmental needs. Aa well as developing and maintaining awareness of your professional and personal self, enabling optimum well-being for both you and your clients.

​Whether you are a trainee counsellor, counsellor, supervisor, line manager, carer, teacher, social worker, advisor, therapist, mentor or youth worker etc. working for the welfare of others, YOU are the ‘instrument’ of your trade. To the clientele the relationship is what enables the desired outcomes and growth to take place.
