How Group Supervision can work for you

Definition of supervision …….

I go every 6 weeks to Group Supervision so, with the permission of my Group, I asked what Group Supervision did for them in one phrase. There were some interesting comments taking into account the Group I have met for a number of years and the quality of the group is therefore outstanding (including 6 supervisors!)

  • Safe to be vulnerable (remember contracting and confidentiality is vital)
  • Group Learning, even when the individual does not have any issues*, not groupthink!
  • Total trust within the group for both learning and sharing
  • Multi-dimensional and I leave energised
  • Held to account and held
  • In it together
  • No shame or blame and a chance to talk things through in detail

Out of this same session a number of generic aspects were seen which we all should be aware of if we want to be better coaches for our clients, which is what I believe supervision is all about.

  • What ethical code do you hold yourself to?
  • Setting boundaries
  • Contracting and re-contracting
  • Parallel Process
  • Blind Spots
  • Confidence
  • Improving standards

Then there were some interesting questions for when somebody doesn’t have a specific topic to bring to supervision or coaching*:

  • What questions are you holding?
  • What would you like to think about today?
  • What would you like to talk about today?

Interestingly enough when people don’t have things to talk about the questions and topics discussed can often become deeper.

  • How easy it is to allow our buttons to be pressed with some clients
  • Be aware of  games being played out with our clients 
  • Parallel process of lacking confidence and disempowerment between self and client 
  • Re-contracting on the rapport between self and client 
  • Being honest about how we feel towards our clients and how that plays out during the supervision session
