Supervision for mental health professionalsProfessional supervision is offered for professionals or students in the mental health field. Each clinician has a minimum of 20 years experience in a variety of contexts in the human services sector. Having been in the role of supervisor and supervisee for many years, we have a good understanding of the challenges and difficulties that arise in the mental health profession and have experienced the value of effective supervision. We draw on a variety of models of supervision including the work of Michael Carroll and Daphne Hewson. We also offer secondary supervision for psychologists in the registrar program.
Understanding what you hope to achieve in supervision will be our initial focus. The sessions will provide an opportunity for you to reflect on your work – what you’re doing well and areas you’d like to strengthen. Our aim is to provide a supportive environment in which you feel safe enough to explore difficulties and challenges, identify areas for development, and recognise and honour achievements.
Depending on your needs, we may also work on cultivating or deepening a mindfulness practice, which can be a profound and nurturing way to experience greater clarity, resilience and authenticity as a clinician.
