Nine Wellbeing: Supervisory approach

The philosophy of Nine Wellbeing also extends to supervision. As a supervisor I am interested in the ‘person’ of the therapist ‘supervisee’. I offer a relational style of supervision, which takes a holistic and supportive view of your world, and how this interacts and influences your responses to your client(s). My philosophy is to work with your strengths, to enhance your practice, and encourage the development of your personal and professional resilience.
