Empower offers a range of services to support professionals in their day to day role. These services include:
Clinical Supervision or Reflective Practice Sessions are a form of support where workers can focus on difficulties through reflective practice, which forms part of their learning and development.
Empower Therapies provide regular sessions with a qualified Clinical Supervisor for small groups or individuals if required. Sessions are tailored to the changing needs of the group. The sessions provide a confidential space for openness, honesty and respect, where staff can share best practice, develop active listening, access emotional support, improve team dynamics and learn.
In these sessions, practitioners are encouraged to find effective ways of working, taking into consideration the personal experiences which impact on feelings and behaviour. Through exploration of emotional reactions to trauma, the sessions can support you to build your resilience. This can reduce burn out, illness and conflict.
Practitioners not only have an ethical responsibility to have regular clinical supervision, but it is usually a requirement for membership and accreditation from professional bodies such as the BACP and UKCP.
Continuous Professional Development (CPD)
CPD is the process of developing skills, experience and knowledge in a profession beyond any initial training. CPD allows professionals to gain useful insight and deepen their professional expertise. It can also enhance employability prospects.
CPD is usually a requirement for membership and accreditation from professional bodies such as the BACP and UKCP.
