WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Susan has such a warm and friendly approach and has helped me to get clarity on many different things. If you are looking for some support with your practice I would recommend contacting her.
Supervision is a particular kind of professional conversation. It is not the kind of conversation that involves giving people advice, assessing them or solving their problems for them.
Supervision is the kind that happens when you provide space, time, and professional support for colleagues so that they can reflect on their encounters with patients.
Walking side by side
Supervision in this sense is about looking after people rather than looking over their shoulders
Whether you work in a clinic or on your own, it's helpful to have someone to talk with about your professional practice. We commonly discusss timekeeping, fees, treatment issues, stress, illness and burnout. You get the space to go over blocks, glide through life transitions and keep on track with self-improvement.
I offer supervision to small groups by Zoom. This is with peers in similar practice situations. Each group member will get time to discuss an issue while getting the rich perspectives from peers. Either a new group can be created, or you may be able to join one that is already established or being started.
Regular one to one supervision helps you to analyse issues in depth. It gives you opportunities to let go of self-criticism and isolation when working alone. Some people use it when an issue comes up but it's most beneficial to have preventively as well. It can be used simultaneously with group supervision.
My practice numbers have doubled since getting supervision. I feel more confident from learning about areas of myself and my work which need attention. It provides space for creative reflection. There is incredible support to improve and manage circumstances affecting professional practice.
I completed one year of acupuncturist supervision training with Isobel Cosgrove and Sally Blades. This course was the first to have been done virtually and inspired me use it to reach people anywhere in the world.
I offer supervision to individuals and groups. Contact me or book for a free chat to find out how you can benefit from regular supervision.
Over the past year I have gotten a substantial amount of training and clinical hours of supervisionin and can offer you professional support by understanding your situation. This gives you time and space to find creative solutions.
Contact me for a chat, it is a positive investment in your career.
