What is Reflective Practice?
Supervision helps you to improve the quality of your work, transform your relationships with your team and with clients, and develop yourself and your practice.
Supervision, in this context, is not line-management, but a much deeper and more enriching process, enabling you to become a reflexive practitioner, engaging in ongoing personal development, for the benefit of your work, and leading to greater competence and confidence in your professional role and in your self-fulfilment.
You’ll find that my reflective style provides a calm, psychologically safe, connected and collaborative space for you to reflect on your interactions and presence within your work relationships and you will experience the potential knock-on effect of this upon the wider, systemic positive impact of your work.
It can be helpful to imagine working with me as an opportunity to develop your ‘Super-Vision’, enabling you to see yourself and your work from a more objective stance. Super-Vision can help you to see what you could not see before, perceive your own blind spots, observe the challenges on your path from a different perspective, and enable you to transform these insights into transformational learning opportunities.
Whether you are a business or organisational manager or in a caring profession, Supervision at its best will support you to see broader perspectives, deeper implications and wider horizons within the complex elements of your work as a leader in your field.
Working with a skilled and experienced Reflective Supervisor is a valuable element of Continuous Professional Development, helping you to ponder upon what is life asking you to respond to, both in your immediate context and for the world of tomorrow. Super-vision is not merely something you do, but is a transformative way of seeing and of being, that can develop your wide-angled
Super-vision at its finest does not stay within the session but will permeate your life, both now and for the future with clearer insights, and greater wisdom. It is a form of Reflective Enquiry that supports you to bring your innate potential into the world in a way that enhances our evolving human
“Maximum growth happens at the intersection of support and challenge.”
