On Becoming…

The first few years of practice –as therapist and supervisor– are undoubtedly challenging.

There are reported experiences of self-doubt, worry, and increased levels of stress. As a supervisor, you can support your therapist (or new supervisor) in their developmental journey by:

– Normalizing the challenges
– Providing a reflective space to learn and grow from new experiences
– Being patient as your supervisees grow at different paces
– Modelling an open and exploring attitude towards the unknown

While the first few years of practice are typically fraught with challenges, it is important to remember these challenging experiences are necessary in developing skilled and capable clinicians.

You can play a fundamental role in their journey and the notion of forever learning. To forever learning.
