Super Vision for Supervisors

What is Supervision?

Supervision is: A formal arrangement for counsellors to discuss their work regularly with someone who is experienced in counselling and supervision.

Jo Ablett and Cheryl Taylor's transformational supervision workshops are grounded in neuroscience and underpinned by person centred principles and compassion. Transformational supervision prizes the relationship and the individual's innate healing capacity and growth potential.

The inclusion of expressive/creative modalities and somatic focus in transformational supervision facilitates learning and provides a means for exploring unconscious elements in the supervisory/therapeutic relationship.


Who is Supervision for?

For counselling and psychotherapy supervisors, team leaders, managers, agencies AND supervisees.

A healthy supervisory relationship is central to the effectiveness of supervision.

Davidson [2016] suggests that "compassion and self-compassion lie at the very heart of well-being". He also points out that compassion and self-compassion are critical in order to be effective therapists. In this workshop we will consider compassion and self-compassion in supervision, how to avoid empathy burnout and how to have courageous and compassionate conversations.
