If you work with young people, having professional supervision should be like having holidays. Something you do throughout the year to stay fresh and healthy.
If you haven’t had professional supervision before, you might be wondering what it is. And a holiday is a perfect starting point.
When you get home from a trip, you have to unpack your bag and wash all the dirty clothes. You pop your toiletries away and then put your suitcase back in its cupboard for next time.
Professional supervision is the unpacking of your mind.
What happens in a session
I like to identify your strengths and use them to develop better ways of working. And it’s about challenging youth workers to tie their practice to theory and be strategic.
I’m a big believer in working smarter, not harder.
What it costs
Yep it costs money. I’ve thought hard about how to provide the best support to people in this field and still pay myself some sort of wage.
A one hour session costs $100 and most people do one or two sessions in each school term.
We can do professional supervision face-to-face, by phone or via Skype, depending on your location. I make trips to Toowoomba and Cairns each
