This presentation discusses the use of the self-reflective practice of integrating journalling and self-portraiture, in order to be able to ‘see’ yourself more clearly, to engage with what is both visible and invisible, creating an opportunity to develop insights through critical reflections on assumptions, values and theories that inform your everyday life and professional practice. Take away a process for your use as a therapist and/or supervisor for continual self-care, self-development and self-supervision.
