Our consultancy services include supporting organisations to develop trauma-informed organisational systems, practice and professional development, reflective practice and supervision processes.
Specialist Secondary Consultation
Our team provides specialist secondary case consultations to organisations working with clients who present with complex issues. Individual practitioners, groups and organisations may get ‘stuck’ with how best to support a client or community. Secondary consultation provided by highly skilled Practice Leaders can provide advice on assessment, formulation, and evidence informed interventions.
Reflective Clinical Supervision
Individual and group Reflective Clinical Supervision based on the VFST Reflective Supervision Framework™ is available to practitioners. Reflective Clinical Supervision is an opportunity for practitioners and teams to develop their reflective and critical thinking to support the work with clients.
Supervisors are supported through the VFST Practice Development Framework™ and have access to a range of support structures, including regular training, and individual and group reflective supervision, to ensure that they are up to date with the latest advancements in practice knowledge in the field, that their practice is reflective, and they are emotionally available to the practitioners that they supervise.
Critical Reflection on Practice (CRoP) – Reflective Practice Groups
CRoP sessions provide an opportunity for professionals to come together and reflect on their practice. CRoP sessions focus on an area of practice that the team would like to reflect on and further develop, where professionals can discuss effective ways of supporting the clients and communities that they work with. The sessions can look at what has worked and what could have been done differently, always with a focus on reflective learning and developing improved practices.
