Clinical Supervision of Therapists and Social Workers

Ray believe clinical supervision is designed to help you explore the kind of therapist you want to be and help you expand your repertoire of skills and knowledge. I want to give therapists the confidence to grow and meet their learning edge.

​Ray use a reflective model to work through your experiences of direct practice. I believe strongly in helping my supervisees growth from each supervision relationship. As your supervisor it is my work to;

  • ​Assist you to keep focus on your client/s,
  • Explore the most appropriate strategies and interventions to work with the client,
  • Focus on your relationship with the client (help manage boundaries, be mindful of processes such as transference, triangulation and other relationship reactions).
  • Help you reflect on your own management and reactions to the work
  • Attend to the supervision relationship
  • Focus on context of your work (mental health field, work with children, family law, mandatory reporting, accountability and duty of care etc)
​Supervision Start-up Process;
  • ​1. Discuss each other’s style and practice – Are we the right fit for one another?
  • 2. Contract for the exact type of work I will be supervising – How can I best meet your needs?
  • 3. Create supervision goals which to be managed and met – How can we adjust and improve things?
