Individual and group supervision are both available - face to face, Skype or Zoom.

Clare runs a number of closed supervision groups via Zoom. These are set up with up to four supervisees and offer three supervision experiences via Zoom at intervals of 6-8 weeks. Dates are mutually agreed by the group. There is a new group starting shortly, so if you'd like to join just get in touch with Clare and she will be able to answer your questions and provide further information. The cost is £200.

Here is some recent feedback from participants in Clare's group supervision:

  • Good challenging contracting questions based on Tuckman’s forming, storing, norming and performing. Within the single session, Clare got us to agree a focus for development for the benefit of the organisation and our clients. We used different tools for different supervisees, the nature of the scenarios and the time available. Helpful to think of boundaries and labels regarding mental health issues in coaching. Drew attention to the parallel process with specific questions. 

 

  • Contracting was good and it was useful to discuss approaches and introduce challenge at this stage. We worked in service of the group and a collective agreement was sought. I liked looking at the group in context of forming, storming, norming and performing. I liked that the session developed naturally and was not too rigid but still had boundaries. Everybody contributed and session brought the best out of everyone. We used parallel process and I liked drawing upon our own experiences. Very clear on time limits and expectations.

 

  • Clear, concise and open contracting. Really good work in service of the group –clear thoughts and ideas across the whole group and enabled individual reflection. Well-structured and planned out. Facilitated well and allowed freedom of thought and interaction. Very good adapting to group dynamics – encouraged us all to take part and took into account different personalities. Good style to enable each person time to contribute constructively. A helpful style of using parallel process, which made me think. 

 

  • A good amount of time was spent on contracting to help the group understand and appreciate the session. Positive input to all sections and participants which brought added insight to the group. Sensitive input to the group helped develop each of the participant’s scenarios. Adapted a flexible approach - identifying those who wished to share at the beginning shaped our expectations. Asked all group members for their comments / thoughts and questions. Well timed comments helped to bring focus to the parallel process. 

 

  • Clare involved all of the group in agreeing contracting and ensured that we covered organisation specific issues. The facilitation of the group ensured all members contributed as individuals and also contributed to a whole group approach. Felt like good progress was made in the group’s development. Felt like the supervisor allowed the group to drive its own directions. Felt like everyone had the opportunity to contribute. Drew attention to the parallel process. 

 

  • Really useful to gain other’s insights. Also very supportive and helped me reflect on my own practice.

 

Pay as you go - SKYPE a SUPERVISOR - perhaps you need a one off supervision session?

Coaching and supervision are usually medium or long term relationships over a period of time, but a one-off session can be equally as powerful. Sometimes there is a more pressing need for supervision, so just get in touch. If Clare is in the office and available, she can support you straight away with an intensive coaching or supervision session by phone or Skype. Alternatively, book a slot to suit you within the next few  days. £125 for an hour (£175 for 90 minutes). Call on 01380 609313 or email clare@inspired2learn.co.uk
