Trauma-informed Supervision



“The supervision provided has been incredibly beneficial. I have learned strategies to assist me in managing vicarious trauma; both strategies which I have been able to apply to specific client situations, and broader strategies which I have used on an ongoing basis.”

“It was only last September when I discovered the Blue Knot Foundation website and I will never forget the feeling of support and empathy that I received when I finally made the first phone call to Blue Knot Helpline, which was also the first time I had ever spoken about my abuse.”


"At last there is some sound education and empathetic support for individuals and partners impacted by such gross boundary violations.”
