About the network

In the early 90s, the Norwich Collective (a peer supervision group) along with Robin Shohet and Joan Wilmot hosted two conferences to look at the dynamics of accreditation, out of which the IPN (Independent Practitioners Network) grew.

In conversation with others the idea of an Independent Supervisors Network has been growing since 2012 and it has now come to fruition. It was launched in July 2019 and is currently funded by CSTD London.

The intention behind ISN is to provide a relational container for supervision and supervisors.

Supervision is a deep and profound place for reflection, dialogue, and relationship where we can simultaneously hold each other in the work – be it the client, the customer, the team, or the organisation.

To belong to the ISN, you need to be part of a peer supervision group or dyad and send in your and the group’s details. 

We envisage being a peer-based community network with each group or dyad being responsible for its own boundaries, style, and principles. To increase learning and appreciate the qualities of the group or dyad and compassionately address its issues, each group regularly sends a delegate to another group to challenge and support. Similarly, that group would be visited by a delegate from another group.
