About our Supervision Service
Spectra’s supervisors offer therapists a nurturing place to receive insights that supports the normalization of their challenges and promotes the development of strategies for clinical practice.
Spectra’s supervisors are experienced in teaching professionals how to interweave their cross-training experiences in a manner that supports the development of harmonious professional frameworks. As such, therapists gain a deeper understanding of how to adapt to individuals’ specialized needs and advance their person-centered approach.
Grounded in the value of encouraging individuals to develop their strengths to lead them to meeting their full potential, Spectra’s supervision groups support therapists’ abilities to practice what they preach. By doing so, therapists can nurture their resilience and enhance their sense of confidence as they form-storm-norm-perform-reform into the therapists they aim to be.
