I schedule days throughout the year where colleagues come in groups of three to spend the day with me in consultation about their work.
Colleagues will each be allocated a part of the day for focusing on their work. I supervise their therapeutic work, do skills development and coaching while the rest of the group witness the work, add their input and learn from the experience. We make use of transcripts / audio / video tapes of interviews with clients, live interviews, letters, being interviewed as a client or being interviewed about parts of the participant’s life and/or work that she or he might want to explore or reflect on. There is much opportunity for celebration of success as well as being joined and supported in the struggles that often form part of therapists’ lives.
We hope that through sharing and reflections participants find their skills sharpened and their joy in their work significantly deepened.
