SUPPORTIVE SUPERVISION: I also offer supportive supervision to employees in mainly front line services or in oles where they may be confronted with regular stressful situations with their client group.
Such supervision is usually conducted as a monthly regular meeting with an individual working in a role which is inherently stressful or even traumatic in terms of what they are exposed to as part of their role. This monthly meeting lasts for 1.5 hours. It can offer the individual a rare opportunity to talk through their experiences; thoughts and feelings in such a way that they can ensure that they are able to process such events. Individuals will also learn to develop and maintain their resilience. This will reduce the likelihood of taking sickness absence fromwork.
- Such groups can include, but is not exclusive to:
- Hospice care staff including nurses, HCA’s etc
- employees within services such as Family Safety Units
- ambulance service workers
- Police or civilians workers within that setting
