COVID Notice: All group supervision will be held online during the COVID Pandemic
What is group supervision?
Group supervision offers a supportive space where you are able to reflect on your work in the company of other professionals. It is facilitator-led, and yet the true learning comes from the other members, all of whom will hold their own, unique way of understanding the therapeutic process.
There are various ways of structuring group supervision and it is within the facilitators role to ensure parity and ensure that each member has their needs met.
I offer different groups to meet a variety of needs, if you give me a little information I can help you decide which is best for you:
Fees & Group Size
|Group Type||Duration & Frequency||Min/Max group size||Fees per attendee|
|Clinical Group||Every 2 weeks for 2 hours||3-4||£25 per 2hr session|
|Development Group||Monthly for 2 hours||4-6||£20 per 2hr session|
|Outdoor Group Supervision||Monthly 1.5hr online meet-ups & two face to face sessions per year||3-6||Online: £20 per session|
Face-face: £40 per 3hr session
|Trainee Group Support||Monthly for 2hrs||4-6||£15 per session|
In group supervision, you will be sharing the space with other therapy professionals, and each professional body will have its own system for deciding how many hours you (as an individual) can claim towards your supervision requirements.
Typically, this looks something like this: In a group of 4 or fewer supervisees, each member can claim 50% of the supervision hours, in groups of 5 or more, the number of attendance hours is divided equally between the supervisees. (This example is representative of NCS & BACP requirements in Jan of 2021)
It is the responsibility of each supervisee to ensure that they meet the required supervision hours of their membership body.
It can be acceptable (and not uncommon) for therapists to attend group supervision in addition to 1:1 work with another supervisor. In these cases, it is strongly advised that you discuss your intentions with your current supervisor, and explore ways in which the group work can enhance (rather than undermine) your original supervisory commitments.
