The common thread of the supervision I propose is Will Schutz’s Human Element approach, i.e. this approach is the first reading grid used, both in the supervisee- supervisor relationship, and in the supervisee’s relationship with themselves and with their client. The system formed by the client and the environment in which the client operates is also seen in the light of this approach.

The Human Element links the level of performance to self-esteem. If I feel good where I work, I am more flexible in my relationships with others, and together we function more fluidly, to do what we need to do. On the contrary, if we feel bad where we operate, we set in motion defensive behaviours, which hinder or block collaboration.

This first reading grid is completed by others, if necessary.
