Supervision

As a supervisor, my aim is to help supervisee's explore their client work at a deeper level, engaging both cognitive and creative thinking processes.  Supervision is all about finding a place to bring curiosity, issues and concerns, into a safe environment, and to leave feeling supported, enriched, resourced and restored.  Key to this is developing your own reflective practice, based on the key tenets of the BACP ethical framework, and to build your confidence as a practitioner.

Method of exploration

 

Within supervision, I use Page and Wosket's (2015) cyclical model of exploration to move around the session.  This is a beautifully simple method of ensuring restorative learning takes place.  It's key elements are: 

- contracting how we are going to work
  together

- identifying the focus

- allowing space to explore
- bringing in a 'bridge' between learning and
  
application
- and reviewing if all needs have been met

Focus of exploration

Hawkin's (2011) Seven Eyed Model helps the supervisee focus on more specific areas of interest, both within the client work, and with the supervisee's own experience of their work and their supervision.  The seven eyes are:

- the client

- strategies and interventions

- relationship between client and
  
supervisee

- the supervisee's process

- the supervisory relationship

- the supervisor's process

- the wider context of the work.
