Join us and Educational Psychologists from Nottingham City Council for a reflective Group Supervision session as part of The Mighty Creatives Support package for Creative Mentors.


This session is a themed Group Supervision session, themed around Supporting Children and Young People who are struggling or experiencing discomfort with their Gender Identity.

These sessions are completely free for members of The Mighty Creatives’ Creative Mentoring pool and is completely bespoke for our Creative Mentoring service.

There are a maximum of 8 spaces per session, so book early to avoid disappointment.

Want a more bespoke session? We have 1:1 slots available with Educational Psychologists during the first week of each month. Email to book. Please refer to our support programme for dates and timings.

What can I expect from the session?

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. It is not a training session, rather it’s a space to have guided and safe conversations with the professional and psychological support of an Educational Psychologist.

This session will be structured around how we work effectively, safely and with empathy with those children and young people who may be struggling with their gender identity.

If you are working with a child/young person who is going through this, or you want to prepare yourself/learn more on the topic, this session will be really helpful.

You may want to bring the following questions/discussion points to the session:

  • What is Gender Identity? What does it mean to us?
  • How can/is Gender Identity impacting the Mental Health of the children/young people?
  • Ways we can support our CYP with their Gender Identity?
  • Examples of what’s worked well for you.
  • Where to get further support?
  • How to find professional help?

 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.
