Clinical Supervision Lincolnshire. Jigsaw Clinical Supervision and Mentoring Service work with every level of employment, from those who work on the frontline to Managers and CEO’s.

At Jigsaw, we are regularly contracted to work with an increasing number of organisations, in wellbeing and mentoring capacity. Ensuring that they are working safely and ethically. Protecting them as frontline workers whether self-employed, employed or organisational.

The idea of overseeing another person’s work in any industry can effectively be called managing, mentoring or supervision. In the counselling arena, however, governing bodies have deemed its’ rightful place and title of that of clinical supervision.

Under this heading there is a clear and critical difference between clinical supervision, mentoring and management, the latter being the ability to manage an individual or a team and of supervision that is clinical, in terms of managing a counsellors’ or therapists’ caseload.

The BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) has determined a current set of requirements for clinical supervision as being a formal space for counsellors and therapists to explore their caseload, concerns, continued professional development and self-reflective practice, with a professional counsellor/supervisor who is experienced.

The supervisor’s goal is “to do whatever seems most likely to send the other person away more aware, more informed, skilled and encouraged than he/she was when he/she came in”.
(Houston 1990, p12)

Above all, supervisors of professional practitioners need to be a nurturing force, one that can be combined with a challenging approach where necessary, allowing the practitioner to develop and grow in confidence and capability without an authoritative or hierarchical air.

At the initial supervision meeting, both parties are able to decide on a way forward with what is expected and this can be established through a contractual agreement signed by both parties. This also determines the length of sessions, frequency and fees which can also be discussed and agreed upon. Just drop us an email to [email protected] or call to discuss at 01507 608020 or 01522 719224 to book an initial meeting.

For further Clinical Supervision Session/s you can pay at the discounted rate by block booking payment online, or at the standard fee; also online or at the beginning of each session.

We look forward to meeting you and hearing about your work.
