Supervision

Supervision provides support, guidance and the opportunity for reflection within your professional life.

To provide a reliable, safe and trusting space to facilitate you in your role, our team understand professional and ethical issues and the importance of confidentiality. Supervision enables you to adhere to the codes of professional ethics and conduct (Health and Care Professions Council and the British Psychological Society). A number of models of supervision can be used which will be discussed as part of the supervision process.

What models of supervision are used?

There are a variety of supervision models which can be used, a supervisor or supervisee may prefer to follow a particular model which can be discussed as part of the introductory process. Two models which are commonly used are Hawkins and Shohet’s process model (2007) and Scaife’s General Supervisory Framework (2001).

A supervision contract will be agreed between the supervisor and supervisee.

Supervision generally is carried out in a 1:1 situation but we can also support group and peer supervision. We can offer generic or specialist supervision.pPlease contact us to explore your supervision needs.
