I can provide supervision for individuals and small groups and hold a Certificate in Mindfulness based Supervision, and trained in Bath with OPAL (Organisation People and Learning). You can find me on the UKCP Supervisory Directory.
I offer Supervision to health professional as individuals and in small groups.
Supervision is a working alliance between two professionals where supervisees offer an account of their work, reflect upon it, receive feedback, and receive guidance where appropriate. The object of this alliance is to enable the worker to gain in ethical competency, confidence and creativity so as to give the best possible service to clients.
Inskipp and Proctor, 2001
I am influenced by the Inskipp and Proctor Model of Supervision. The Contemplative approach to Supervision; body, speech and mind is useful. Where appropriate, I use the Seven-Eyed model from Hawkins and Shohet.
For Supervising small groups I tend to favour authoritative group supervision, but can work with participative group supervision.
