Group Supervision can be defined as “Communication between two or more staff, intended to enhance performance and effectiveness in carrying out the requirements of their post.” A supervision group is a chance to reflect with others in a confidential space.
The purpose of the group is not to tell other people what to do, nor is it group therapy, but can become a really supportive and healthy place for professionals and/or staff members to offload, create a shared understanding and enhance emotional wellbeing.
At Links we have individual supervisors who are qualified and accredited with BACP to deliver supervision to counsellors and other professionals.
From school principals, to teaching staff, business professionals to social workers, we can all benefit with having a safe and confidential space to discuss, work through and overcome the challenges of work stress and professional boundaries.
Often our work can blend into our personal lives, and for many who are working with vulnerable people, the emotional baggage can be exhausting, leading to burnout or physical ailments. Supervision is a great way to top up your reserves and put in healthy measures to make sure that you can be the most effective employee or practitioner.
