My own experience of being supervised.

Throughout my career I have experienced a variety of types of supervision. Line management from light touch to micro management; supervision used to bully and to abrogate responsibility, regarded as an additional task. So I know the value of good supervision.

I have experienced skilled supervisors who engage, enhance and exchange knowledge, wisdom and experience. This has been in the form of one to one, group and peer supervision environments; through professional bodies, my workplace as well as when I have self-funded.

An able supervisor can make the difference between a healthy working environment and burnout. I aim to be that type of supervisor.
