Professional Supervision


Professional supervision is a confidential space for you to bring your hopes and fears, your vulnerabilities and passions, your lofty dreams and awful nightmares. Supervision means having a place to explore your internal experience in the role of educational leader.


We won’t be talking about leadership skills specifically. That’s for professional development and you already most likely have some access to that. That sort of development often really helps you help others, and that’s wonderful. But it’s not what’s going on in supervision sessions.


It’s also not about me telling you what to do. You know how to do your job, this isn’t like supervising a trainee teacher. This is different.


Supervision involves a supportive peer relationship to help you develop sustainable emotional and professional practices in leadership.


We’ll be discussing how you lead your life, what fills your thoughts, what keeps you at school late, what your values and strengths are and how to develop them, who you can rely on, how you communicate in critical times, and how to cope with the load.

I have found the process of supervision so helpful in clarifying my ideas and perceptions, and gently challenging my assumptions related to the leadership journey. Having an ‘outside’ listener and someone autonomous to reflect back accurately is invaluable.



How does it work?

It’s simple. First we have a chat and see if we want to work together.

Then you book an appointment time and we take it from there. I encourage my clients to treat these appointments as seriously unbreakable as the appointments at school you’d never think of cancelling. Your wellbeing is at least as important as everything else you’re dealing with.

Sessions are available to suit us both, in and out of business hours.

What do I need to do before my first appointment?

Once you’re booked in, I’ll send you some questionnaires to complete to assess your current stress and distress levels, strengths, quality of life and your hopes. That’s it.

I’m doing all sessions via videoconference presently. I use a secure video-conferencing platform and I’ll send you all the details you need in the first emails and we’ll be good to go!

Together we’ll work through ways to feel as good as you can, harness your strengths, explore mental models to help you structure your internal narrative, and keep you focused and acting on what you you value most.

Through supervision you’ll develop your emotional flexibility through reflection and exploration. I’ll help you figure out healthy ways to manage the emotions of educational leadership, and you’ll learn how to recognise your stress levels and triggers, and act before you drop or pop!

Let’s have a chat and see if we’re a good fit for a supervision relationship
