Last weekend I started my training as a Creative Supervisor with Relight here in Bristol. It's a 9-month experiential course which will give me all I need to be able to skilfully supervise creative arts therapists. It will also up my game as a mentor / creative consultant to workshop facilitators.

As part of my training I need to find a supervisee to embark on a supervision journey with me. You will get 15 hours of low-cost supervision between now and June. This can be in person in Bristol or online on Zoom at a time that works for both of us (not weekends).

Ideally we'd find a regular slot – every two weeks - and stick to it through the next 9 months – there can be some wriggle room for holidays etc.

We will work creatively and dynamically, utilising my existing tool kit (discussion, dance / movement, play, clowning, character-work, voicework, creative writing, artwork, dramatherapy, compassionate inquiry, the clearness committee, action learning, focussing, mindfulness) as well as incorporating tools I learn along my supervision journey.

I may write about our sessions in my essay and share details with my supervisor and learning group – I will anonymise any personal information about you.

Could this be for you?
