SUPERVISION

Spiritual Directors most often work in isolation. We meet with clients/directees one-to-one or in small groups. It is our desire to be aware that the Divine/God/Spirit is always present. However, there are times when we need the support of a trained colleague - ideally in regular sessions. A supervisor can answer this need by offering a safe and sacred space in which to share and receive support and guidance. 

I am a trained Supervisor who also teaches supervision workshops. Lucy Abbott Tucker is my mentor and teacher. I use Lucy's model method to work with spiritual directors. It is a user-friendly way to approach supervision! Please see Lucy's workbook for more information:

My Definition of SD Supervision:

A welcoming space where spiritual directors/companions may be supported and encouraged in their practices.

The supervision method I use is grounded in affirmation, self-reflection, consultation, challenge and education.

Directors/supervisees will come away from sessions with renewed energy and insights

into the practice of spiritual companionship.                       ~revised November 2023

Please reach out to me for a complimentary supervision session!
