One to one supervision is a relational, confidential process wherein a trained supervisor and a supervisee co-create a space which supports and challenges the supervisee in their professional role.
This co-created space can take various forms at different stages of the process. Supervision can be a reflective space where the supervisor and supervisee look at particular aspects of the work including client material, dynamics at the work place, organisational issues and ethical dilemmas. It can be a reflexive work where the supervisory dyad investigate how they are looking at the supervisee's work by exploring personal beliefs, values, biases and growing edges. Supervision can also be a formative space where the supervisee learns new skills and engages with their continuous professional development. It can also take the form of a restorative space as supervisor and supervisee may focus on self care practices whilst fostering links with to a supervisee's personal journey. Supervision can also take the form of a containing, cathartic space within which the supervisee can work through emotional reactions as a result of their contact with service users or clients.
