Anna Koppenhout – Supervision at Apple Tree

It is essential that you feel comfortable with the supervision relationship, so here’s some more information about supervision at Apple Tree to help you make your decision.

My supervision

I am  trained and experienced in delivering supervision over many years. When I first qualified as a speech and language therapist, over 30 years ago, I was fortunate to work in teams that encouraged regular supervision and I have continued to participate in supervision throughout my career in the NHS and in independent practice. Offering and receiving supervision both individually and in groups has always been  central to my practice  and I find both components enrich my own clinical skills. I continue to access  regular supervision to develop my clinical and supervision practice and to ensure professional  standards are maintained. I completed the one year foundation training in Systemic Family Therapy and Solution Focused therapy which I draw on in my supervision as well as clinical work.

My approach to supervision

I believe that we are each on an individual professional journey and that supervision is a personal process that enables that person to reflect and move forward on that journey. It is different for each person and will look different across various stages of our careers and from one session to another. It is a privilege to share a part of  that journey with colleagues. I provide a safe and confidential space for supervisees to reflect and problem-solve. Rather than providing direct advice, my role is to listen and to ask pertinent questions that allow the supervisee to explore and find answers.  However, sometimes supervisees will seek specific information about clinical or professional issues and I am happy to share my knowledge and experience if sought.
