He* who is best prepared can best serve his moment of inspiration.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge

We know that clients who prepare for sessions benefit more and increase the effectivity of therapy.
The same is true for supervision.

Before each supervision, take some time to consider:


+ What is my expectation for this session?

+ What is my goal?

+ What do I want my supervisor to do?

+ How can I clearly communicate what my expectations are, e.g if I just want a listening               

+     Prepare to present a topic or an issue and consider what I do need to know. (Valuable time (your time!) can be lost in recalling too many details. However, sometimes details are important. Make a case by case judgement.)

+    Be brave and share the uncomfortable. ( Staying on the surface might minimise the discomfort in the moment, but does not lead to growth.)

+    Consider how you want to be with your clients, in supervision and with me. Reflect how this might be beneficial or not.


+    Be clear on your values, regarding your work, supervision and our relationship.


+    Create space to be vulnerable, to listen to alternative perspectives, to learn and to be challenged.


+    Try to minimise all disruptions: turn off your phone, switch off notifications, close the door….


+    Commit to change your approach by integrating new learnings.


+    Keep a logbook to help you to identify themes, topics or  issues frequently arising and also to document how you put new learning into practice.


+    Make self-reflection a daily practice and see supervision as important - far beyond your association’s requirement.
