Mentoring and Supervision

In addition to my work as a practitioner, I provide mentoring/supervision for acupuncturists and other complementary health practitioners. In 2010 I completed a year-long training in supervision with Isobel Cosgrove and Sally Blades and since then I have been a member of the supervision/mentoring network they established.

Why Have Mentoring/Supervision?

Mentoring provides a safe and confidential space in which to discuss your work. It gives you a regular opportunity to focus on difficult areas of practice. The working relationship is more about listening and understanding, and being a skilled ‘sounding board’ than giving advice.

It is also a place for recognizing your achievements, building up your resources and getting support for yourself as a practitioner.

Issues commonly arising are: boundaries, the client-practitioner relationship, growing and shaping your practice, identifying and achieving goals, developing expertise in Chinese medicine, practitioner isolation, stress and work-life balance.

I have found having mentoring and supervision invaluable for supporting my development as a practitioner, and for enjoying my chosen career and way of life.

If you would like to set up a free initial meeting about mentoring/supervision, or a first session, then please contact me.
