The SVN Supervision Approach

Your Supervisor will work with you to select an approach for your call that will meet your specific needs.

The 7 eyed model

Sometimes it’s useful to understand the type of models that your Supervisor will be using, when they work with you.

The following diagram neatly describes ‘The 7 eyed model’ which demonstrates one example of a model that we might use:

  • The relationship between you and your supervisor (5)
  • The relationship between you and your client (3)
  • Interventions which you may use with your client (2)
  • Issues relating to your client and their world (1)
  • The wider context in terms of the client’s organisation (7)
  • The importance of ethics, boundaries and other coaching protocols
