1:1 and Group Supervision to develop and enrich your coaching & consultancy skills.
Supervision is a 1:1 or group discussion, on a regular, contracted basis, that supports good practice in those who work with relationships, enriching people both professionally and personally, for the benefit of both the supervisee and their clients. It is a reflective process with elements of coaching, teaching, and maintenance of professional standards.
Qualified in integrative supervision of groups and individuals, Linda Aspey’s aim as a supervisor is to build with you a relationship in which you feel supported and secure enough to fully explore your work and stretch your skills, in an environment free from fear.
The Thinking Environment creates a unique partnership for the supervisee to develop expertise in thinking for themselves about their work with clients; in this approach there is an explicit expectation that the supervisee is in charge of the session. The supervisor’s main role is to be a generative, encouraging force for the supervisee to come to insights and understanding as well as consolidate and crystalize their own questions. Input from the supervisor is only given when asked for. It requires a deep acceptance that the supervisor adds more value through their attention than they do through their input. The space that is created, free from competition or hierarchy, is a partnership of equality.
The giving of generative Attention has a dimension of compassionate mindfulness; experiencing this is powerful and liberating and also helps the supervisee to develop expertise in helping their own clients to think for themselves.
