Supervision for Lawyers
We provide therapeutic supervision for lawyers (otherwise known as reflective practice).
This is particularly useful for those working in more emotive areas of law, such as family and private client law.
What is therapeutic supervision?
It is support from a therapist or coach to discuss difficulties and dynamics that come up in your work. Your supervisor can help you make sense of such situations, take care of yourself better and, where appropriate, help you to make adjustments to the way you practice.
What will we talk about in supervision?
Often it takes the form of discussing common dynamics that we fall into with our clients. These tend to include:
We can reflect with you on the above issues and other stressors in the job, both internal and external. This helps to reduce the pressure on you and helps you to make changes where needed.

Is it 1-1 or in groups? And how often do lawyers have supervision?
We deliver supervision either 1-1 or in groups.
Group supervision can be helpful for teams as a whole or by dividing teams up into groups, according to seniority and PQE.
The regularity of supervision is flexible but we recommend having it on a fortnightly or monthly basis.
