What can I expect from the session?

This session is a themed session, to provide a particular challenge or topic for Creative Mentors to talk about, share solutions and support each other. This themed session is around Depression and Self-Harm.

If you’re working with a young person that experiences the above needs, please sign up to this session early to avoid missing out on this structured session.

If you want a more open session, please refer to our event pages.

Supervision is a critical component of safe and effective practice. It provides a contained and reflective space to acknowledge and process experiences with Creative Mentoring in a comfortable, dynamic and supervised space.

These sessions will offer:

  • Structured professional and peer-to-peer supervision with the support of a trained Educational Psychologist.
  • Reflective and dynamic discussions to consider our work as Creative Mentors, our responses to our work and how we are keeping ourselves safe.
  • Explore what is working well, the challenges and difficulties we may face in our role, and what support is available to support.
  • Explore a solution-based approach in the way you work with others and children and young people.

See what Creative Mentors have thought about the Supervision:

“I attended my first ever Group Supervision recently. I didn’t know what to expect but I found it very helpful and supportive. It enabled me to talk freely with a very approachable Educational Psychologist and other Mentors about any issues that have arisen in the course of Creative Mentoring. The discussion is interactive and non-judgemental with people listening and offering insight, advice and encouragement.” – Creative Mentor.

“I found it incredibly helpful being able to speak to other mentors and facilitators. It enabled me to view things from different perspectives and gave me fresh ideas to overcome resistance” – Creative Mentor.

“I’m always happy to attend the group supervision sessions if I’m available, as I think they are useful for connecting and reflecting. I mostly don’t have something I want to say prior to going into these but find it interesting in terms of the things that get talked about” – Creative Mentor.
