Testimonials

Since doing TRTP in April 2020, I can say that it has changed my underlying response to my feelings of safety. From the work I’ve done with Lauren using this process, it has given me a calmness and assertiveness I haven’t had before as well as taking away much of …

How do you determine who is going to be a good fit for your style of practice and your personality?

1

Find out what you can about a potential supervisor. Ask your colleagues what they know about him/her as a person, a clinician, a supervisor.

If they have a website, read up about their approach, the work they do and their background; do they have any supervisory experience?

2

Call the potential supervisor and ask some questions over the phone; these can be basic questions about fees and availability. You will be able to form a first impression which will guide you as to whether to make an appointment with them for a first ‘interview’ or take some time to think about it. You can then call them back at a later time to make an appointment or look for someone else who will be a better fit for you.

Once you have established that you would like to go ahead and work with this supervisor, you always have the right to pull out of the arrangement at any time. Of course, it would be best if you could address this with the supervisor before leaving the relationship as there may be issues which can be resolved through discussion. Even if you don’t think there is anything to resolve, your feedback will be valuable to the supervisor in their own journey of growth.

Choosing a supervisor involves making a big decision.

It can be nerve-wracking as you worry about exposing yourself to another professional. You may feel vulnerable and anxious about what the supervisor will think of you and your clinical skills. Even if you are an experienced therapist, you may still be worried about how a peer may perceive the work you do.
