SUPERVISION

Why you need professional supervision

Few careers in life cause as much distress to the personnel who work in them as the emergency services and the caregiving professions. Too often, healthy people enter these professions only to retire (sometimes prematurely) with broken spirits, damaged bodies, disturbed home lives, changed personalities, and lost dreams. (Mitchell & Everley, 1994)

 

How we’ll work together

Cheryl provides professional supervision using evidence-based modalities in a way that suits your style, qualifications, at a time that suits you and your budget.

Ultimately it results in your ongoing professional development, choosing which strategies to use in the future, to have peace of mind and be refreshed to continue in your chosen profession.

 

Supervision should be attended regularly (ideally monthly) to avoid ‘burn out’.

By scheduling sessions in advance, it not only enables you to have a sense of routine but assists you to plan what you wish to bring to the session. It also ensures your commitment instead of deferring or having an ‘I’ll be fine’ attitude until you reach breaking point.

Regular supervision is especially required if you are working in fields where you are exposed to hearing, seeing or experiencing intense situations, such as people telling about suicide, domestic violence, childhood abuse or tragedy.

Additionally, it’s also wise to have ad hoc supervision sessions should an extremely intense situation occur which may trigger reactions from past experiences.

Sessions are provided by webinar or telephone. At times that suit you, including after hours.

You can afford this !

I get it. You’re busy and budgets are tight. But prevention is better (and cheaper!) than a cure.
