I am a qualified supervisor with IAHIP to support other accredited therapists and those in training. All psychotherapists and counsellors are required to have supervision, a form of peer support, on an on-going basis. Supervision is an essential requirement in maintaining a competent practice. I aim to support and encourage supervisees in their work and allow time to reflect on the work (which is integral to the psychotherapeutic process). I believe that reflecting on the work provides a basis for learning from that work and for working more creatively.
MY SUPERVISION METHOD
I follow the Page and Wosket 5 stage cyclical model of supervision which for me has simplified the supervision process. The five stages of the Cyclical Model can be summed up as follows:
Supervision is a collaborative, relational process that benefits from structures and frameworks to shape and guide the work. The cyclical model creates a safe container for the supervision process and when it is in place it allows the supervisor and supervisee to risk using more of themselves, to be open to working in spontaneous and creative ways with what is emerging. I find this model clearly understandable and I can readily adapt it to the requirements of the situation.
