Wellbeing Support and Mentoring in the Workplace
Corporate supervision and organisational professional supervision is essential to build a strong and resilient work force, lower absence and workplace stress. Corporate professional and organisational supervision works with every level of employment, from those who work on the frontline to managers and chief executive officers. At SJD Clinical Supervision and Consultancy are regularly contracted to work with an increasing number of organisations, in a wellbeing and professional mentoring capacity. For those working on the frontline with traumatised individuals, professional supervision ensures that employees are working safely and ethically, protecting them as frontline workers whether self-employed, employed or organisational. The idea of overseeing another person’s work in any industry can effectively be called managing, mentoring or supervision. Above all, supervisors of professional practitioners need to be a nurturing force, one that can be combined with a challenging approach where necessary, allowing the practitioner to develop and grow in confidence and capability without, an authoritative or hierarchical air.
We offer the full package of professional supervision to both individuals and groups within your work force and/or organisation. Working in this way, allows us to offer face to face, telephone and video sessions. We provide the very best nurturing and supportive professional supervision possible.
The supervisor’s goal is “to do whatever seems most likely to send the other person away more aware, more informed, skilled and encouraged than she was when she came in”.
(Houston 1990, p12)
At the initial supervision meeting both parties are able to decide on a way forward with what is expected and this can be established through a contractual agreement signed by both parties. This also determines the length of sessions, frequency and fees which can also be discussed and agreed.
The task of the supervisor is to help him (the supervisee) feel received, valued understood on the assumption that only then will he feel safe enough and open enough to review and challenge himself, as well as to value himself and his own abilities. Without this atmosphere, too, he is unlikely to be open to critical feedback or pay good attention to managerial instructions.

“SJD Supervision Consultancy Services have been our Wellbeing Planning system of choice, since 2017. We were able to negotiate block booking terms, to suit the company’s requirements. This enables our staff from Leisure Attendants to Senior Executives, the option to attend professional, confidential wellbeing sessions should they be experiencing any difficulties in their life, whether that is in the workplace or at home. Appointments are easy to make and Sue Daniels the Clinical Lead, has always been happy to discuss any specific issues that we’ve had. Their work with
employee issues is held in the highest regard and in complete confidence. For Magna Vitae, this is invaluable, as it assists us in maintaining a healthy and happy workforce. I have no hesitation in endorsing and recommending SJD Wellbeing and Supervision Services to every employer.”
“At Ralegh we believe in supporting our employees through the good times and the bad. SJD Wellbeing and Mentoring has helped us provide support for the emotional issues we all face at some time in our lives. This support not only helps the affected employee work through the issues they face, it also helps their fellow employees and the business get back to normality in a quicker time frame then the NHS services could provide. We believe the money spent pays for itself many times over. Thank you to Sue and the Team at SJD Supervision Consultancy“
