Supervision is the place in my work where I can be at my most free ranging -playful, free to think aloud, able to comment on the process, challenge, take a journey into the unknown. Then there is the opposite side when I really have to hold the boundaries, own my own authority and risk the good relationship for the sake of the truth. Hawkins & Shohet.


“Good supervision amongst other tasks is getting the balance right in the relationship” Hawkins & Shohet
