1. Clinical/Professional Supervision for Health, Allied Health & Community Based Professionals

The premise of Clinical Supervision is to provide the practitioner with a confidential, safe space to discuss issues that are in some way “on” their mind.  My role is to facilitate that exploration.  The issues may concern an experience or interaction with a client/patient, a colleague, the workplace, the organisation or another matter.

At times personal matters may arise that you wish to discuss: this is also possible.  The inter-face between work and home is acknowledged so there may need for discussion if this comfortable for you.  If not that is fine.  You may wish to seek out another option for such matters.

Typically Clinical Supervision is offered to people who work in health, allied health and medical fields. It is also offered to emergency service workers and others who are exposed to traumatic situations at work.

It is seen as best practice: essential for learning and continuous improvement. In some professions, such as Psychology, regular Clinical Supervision is compulsory for renewal of annual registration.

2. Workplace Mediation

Conflict is a natural part of life. It is vital for change, growth and development. However at times an impasse can occur that needs leverage via the process of Mediation. The neutrality of the Mediator is critical for mediation. When two or more employees are in conflict an internal employee, no matter how skilled, cannot bring the essential quality of neutrality to the mediation table. Therese can provide a mediation to assist your staff in working through their issues in a productive way.

Therese is a trained and experienced Mediator. As a Psychologist she brings a rich and deep understanding of human behaviour to the Mediation table.

The Mediation Model typically involves an individual session with each of the people who will be involved in the Mediation process. These sessions may take between 30min-2hours depending on the nature and extent of the conflict. The Mediation is then conducted. The time needed for Mediation is also dependent upon the nature of the conflict. An approximate time frame can be offered.
