We offer individual and group supervision for a range of professional contexts including Social Care, Mental Health, Education and Youth Justice Services.
Our overarching framework is trauma-informed supervision. Trauma-informed supervision is an ethos, rather than a specific model, and we embody the following values within the supervisory relationship:
- Safety, trust, and collaboration.
- Everyone’s experiences, perspectives and differences are included, welcomed and celebrated.
- The importance of having a safe, consistent, regular and reflective space, particularly when working within complex contexts and complex clients.
- The acceptance that we all have our own triggers and stressors which can be activated within our work. Supervision will value reflection, well-being and self-care.
- The understanding that sometimes feelings and behaviours with our clients can get repeated in the supervision relationship. This will be held in mind and worked with in supervision if helpful.
- Supervision is relational. It is a two-way relationship where both voices are listened to and both voices matter.
Clinical supervision is an ongoing relationship between the supervisor and supervisee where, just as with direct therapeutic or supportive work, trust and collaboration builds over time. We treat the supervisory relationship with respect and compassion, whilst also holding central the importance of constructive challenge and the need for us all to be held to account for our professional action or in-action.
