Supervision

Coral Harrison PTSTA,CTA, EAGALA Advance Certified

I am a UKCP registered Child & Adult Suoervisor with over 20 years experience of working with children, adolescents and adults. I enjoy working with individuals to develop their own unique style of therapy.

Supervision is a vital part of supporting professionals in their work with people. It is a requirement for counsellors, psychotherapists, social workers and other mental health practitioners. Supervision is also relevant for any professional working with children and/or adults who have mental health issues.

Supervision is a developmental process ,supporting the helping professional to reflect on their work and enhance therapeutic skills. Supervision is important to ensure that we are working effectively and in the best interests of the client. When working with clients with emotional distress we use ourselves in the relationship,  this can impact on own wellbeing and bodies. These may include increased anxiety, sleep disturbance, physical symptoms, difficulties switching off from work, increases in coping mechanisms such as drinking, ruminating thoughts and overworking.  These symptoms may be a part or a stress reaction which includes compassion fatigue or vicarious trauma.

The development of a trusting and supportive relationship with a supervisor can act as a protection factor for highlighting work related stress and burnout.
