Systemic Supervision provides a team or individuals with a space in which to bring forth and set forth with discussion, exploration and reflection of their professional practice. Supervision is a vital tool for practitioners to help address issues and concerns relating to their professional role.

Supervision may include discussing issues relating to young people, a practitioner’s own personal and professional development, relationships between teams or wider organisational issues. Our key aim is to support supervisees in developing best practice in relation to their role, their relationships with other agencies and colleagues and for themselves as professionals.

Karen and Jane offer supervision for individuals, teams and small groups. We are also available for systemic training and development for teams and organisations.

We are inspired and informed by the following:

Supervision as organisational development: to consider how the role of supervision can develop and bring about change in organisations and foster new and emergent ideas that feed into an evolving culture of change.

Supervision as research: using supervision as a research process to continuously informing the organisation about its performance.

Supervision as learning to transgress: developing the reflexive nature of supervision in which discourses are challenged and addressed.

Supervision as personal development: addressing the learning needs of the individual practitioners in order to become conscious of their own processes, supporting participants to continually adapt to the context in which they are working.
