What is professional supervision?

Professional supervision assists you to develop your skills, knowledge, and resilience so you continue to grow your professional competence, confidence, and maintain your personal well-being. Professional supervision creates a safe and supportive environment where you can critically reflect on your work as a support work practitioner.

Common areas of practice discussed during supervision include (but are not limited to):

• stress management and self-care
• accountability
• communication and documentation
• managing boundaries, conflict, and working relationships
• understanding roles, responsibilities, and expectations
• ethical dilemmas and barriers
• person-centred approaches
• professional development planning

Professional supervision takes a proactive approach to development and well-being. Unlike reactive supports such as counselling or an Employee Assistance Program (EAP), supervision aims to build and maintain your competence, confidence, and resilience, so the quality of your work remains high, and the risks to you and those you support stays low.

How does flexible group professional supervision work?

Flexible group supervision allows you to choose when you want to attend sessions. You do not need to make any ongoing commitment. This means you can join a session when you have specific questions or concerns that you would like to work through, or you can join sessions regularly because you feel and see the benefits of ongoing support and connection.

Groups are small, with a maximum of 10 people.

Is group professional supervision confidential?

Professional supervision is private and confidential. There are limits however to privacy and confidentiality where serious concerns of harm to self or others exist, and where overriding legal or ethical issues arise.

By choosing to participate in group supervision you agree to maintain the privacy and confidentiality of all people and entities at all times. If you can not make this agreement, you must not participate in group supervision.

What does group professional supervision cost?

Group sessions cost $35 per person, per session. Sessions typically run for 1.5 hours. However, if on any given day the group is small i.e. 3 people or less, the session may be shortened to 1 hour. This decision will be at the discretion of the Supervisor facilitating the group session.

External professional supervision is also typically consider a legitimate tax deduction as an expense incurred in the course of your work. Some employers are also happy to subsidise external supervision for their employees.
