New Life Therapy's Supervisor, Sherene, has been practicing as a supervisor for over 7 years and provides individual and group supervision.
Sherene considers it a privilege to provide supervision, she recognises that it is essential to choose a supervisor that you feel you can connect with, be open and honest with, as well as someone that can appropriately challenge you and is able to provide you with excellent support.
Supervision is an opportunity whereby the supervisee, client and supervisor embark on a journey together. The client is in the driver’s seat, the supervisee in the passenger seat and the supervisor in the back seat. Sherene's role as the supervisor is to observe the journey, to explore what you notice about the journey and the impact this may have on you, to highlight what she has noticed and explore your interventions. She will share her knowledge and experience with you and provide you with support, guidance and instruction, as well as encourage the development of your internal supervisor.
Supervision underpins Counselling practice as a whole and is a crucial component to supporting and developing both trainees, newly qualified and experienced therapists. It is considered best practice for qualified therapist to undertake a minimum of 1.5 hours of supervision per month. It is recommended that trainee therapist have at least 1.5 hours of supervision a month, with supervision every two weeks. However, the amount of supervision received should be based on the individual therapist needs and their caseload.
Sherene use's the Seven Eyed Process Model to inform my practice. If you are unfamiliar with this model, you may find it useful to review the diagram below:
