Trauma-Informed Psychotherapy Supervision

Trauma-Informed Psychotherapy Supervision

Supervision is essential, especially for professionals working with humans with lived experience of trauma. Benefits of trauma-informed supervision include skills and confidence development, professional and personal development, and gaining a sense of community or support. Current supervisees say they find it enriching and supportive. Supervision offered in workplaces may not be safe or adequate. Optimally, supervisees need privacy and safety to create the best environment for learning, preferably away from work. My supervision is personalised to your learning needs and is oriented to help you broaden and deepen trauma-informed practice. Both group supervision and individual supervision is available. All supervision is offered via Zoom, and you can also create your own specific learning /supervision group if desired.
