There is starting to be more of a positive buzz where Professional Supervision is concerned, and it is something I wish had been more prevalent when I joined the Sign Language Interpreting profession in 2012 after training at Wolverhampton University.
I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to be introduced to Supervision a few years back by a colleague on this site, who inspired me to study for the Diploma in Supervision myself.
Whilst venting to colleagues has its therapeutic merits, structured supervision allows meaningful time in which to reflect and pick apart our work in a safe, non-judgmental environment.
Supervisees should expect to be challenged during supervision to consider alternative viewpoints and explore what was happening in the moment.
Supervision aids our development as professionals and allows us to offload, mitigating the build up of work related stress.
I have access to a room in Coventry where 1:1 sessions can be held face to face, alternatively I am happy to work with supervisees remotely.
