About clinical supervision or worklife counselling, as I prefer to call it
Clinical supervision was originally developed to enable nurses and other medicare professionals to enhance their knowledge and skills with the help of a trained clinical supervisor at their workplace. That explains the term. However, modern complex work life at any expert level challenges persons and teams today in various ways, not only medicare professionals. Worklife counselling has been proven to be highly beneficial for managers, employees or teams to reflect on work related issues facilitated by a trained clinical supervisor, i.e. counsellor. Outcomes of ( worklife ) counselling can include improved worklife-balance, enhanced success at work and in teams, increased well-being, and enabling you to find greater insight in your work-related decision-making processes to name a few.
My approach lies in the dialogical, narrative and strengt-based orientation.
