Mentoring Meeting details

All meetings are tailored to meet your needs on the day.

We’ll check-in, set an agenda, and use the time available as productively as we can.

We might share experience, review hands-on techniques, discuss questions, develop knowledge, reflect on specific events, even get our APP books out!

Mentoring or Supervision?

I use the terms mentoring and supervision interchangeably, although I deeply favour mentoring. Somehow “being supervised” still has connotations of being told what to do and of being judged. Mentoring is about facilitating a safe, open space for the developing therapist, for honing and evolving their skills, approach and practice.

A mentor stands alongside rather than above.

Practicing What I Preach!

I’ve received mentoring within groups run by Charmaine Storer, Andy Fagg and Tim Bartlett for many years now. I’m convinced that paying attention to my practice in this way makes me a better therapist.
