The clearer we are in ourselves, the more effectively we can take action to support others.

In Australia, if you are a psychologist, a counsellor, or a social worker - as a part of your self care, it is a mandatory part of your registration that you maintain minimum levels of supervision.  However, for many others working in the helping profession, supervision is not provided.  Group supervision at The Grove offers an economical way to support both teams and individuals.  For example, if you are - a case worker, a support worker, a nurse, a police officer, a teacher, a lawyer, a health practitioner, or you work in emergency services - supervision can offer you, or your team, an economical, safe and supportive space in which you can debrief and develop a culture of self-care.


What is Supervision?...

Supervision can offer you, or your team, an economical, safe and supportive space in which you can debrief and develop a culture of self-care.

At The Grove, we prize supervision.  Supervision is designed to support people working in the helping professions, to be the most effective practitioners they can be.  It is a place where practitioners - are held accountable, are actively encouraged to reflect on their work, and are encouraged to extend their learning.   As such supervision, can contribute to a practitioners growth, both professionally and personally.   At The Grove, we endeavour to offer high quality supervision opportunities for ourselves and other professionals.
