mentoring & supervision

for filmmakers



Here is the new  mentor service for creative space holders. Whether you are a producer, director, actor or acting coach or a crew member looking for tips on collaborative practice and clear communication, this service could suit you well!  I work in person or online, with individuals and with groups. 

Here is an excerpt from the document and process I take you through in the 2 hour session.   The process is very much guided by your needs and the info and exercises in the document will set you up for more prepared, inclusive and safe space holding for group practice. 


Do you know what makes a space the most deep and effective? Is the level of trust that we can tap into and the conditions for trust that we can provide. Counselling research shows that one of the most powerful ingredients for building an environment where someone feels safe to be themselves is therapeutic alliance. This is when the practitioner and the person who is working alongside the practitioner feel an affinity, understanding
and safety together. This for me is a deeply trusting place. So, in order to build a safe and encouraging environment for people to work with us in, how do we build trust?
I believe we need to feel these three things within ourselves first to build trust in a group.

1.) Resourcing
2.) Preparation
3.) Faith in the process  


Trust comes first for the group or ensemble through you! It is how you hold the space and operate with trust within yourself that instals a message of safety that runs through the field. After that, it is through your process of guiding the group to connect and build truth together.

Cost of a 2 hour session with document (zoom):

1 person:  £140

2 - 4 people:  £180

Please add £100 for room hire if you need in person. (This is the price I am charged for local room hire). 

Follow up sessions will be as per supervision rates below. 


supervision spaces for filmmakers of all types and in different roles - a space to go to be heard in the heart of the creative process, to be held space for, to have a focused time for resourcing and exploration of themes.  Carrie Day is a trained counsellor and supervisor with thirty years of holding space for people of all ages in creative process.

Zoom Supervision sessions

The creative process can be tough - especially as the environment we work in makes us push ourselves which is counteracting to creative process. I bring my counsellor, supervision, constellation therapy and practice as an artist/writer/filmmaker to provide spaces to support the creative process. 

I offer supervision as a specialised form of mentoring.  The supervision I hold follows the codes of COSCA and the Ethical framework provided by BACP.  These guidelines are in place to safeguard practitioners to ensure standards, enhance quality, advance learning, stimulate creativity, and support the sustainability and resilience of work being undertaken with a client. 

At its most simplistic, supervision means to oversee another individual.  The Supervision I oversee, offers a confidential, empathic, compassionate, encouraging and reflective space in which you as a practitioner can develop and grow awareness for your practice.  This benefits the safety of the clients you work with.  One of the main reasons for supervision is to ensure the provision of a space which is safe for your client on all levels.  I too have supervision that ensures I hold a safe space for you and your clients.  All aspects of your practice are open to supervision.

Please request the introductory form. After sending this back to me I will email you a copy of the contract which we will have a look at in the free 45 minute meeting, before we both agree to move forwards with supervision.   You will need to sign two copies and send them back before the sessions commence. I will send one of the signed copies back to you with my signature. 

Cost £50 1 hour / £70 90 minutes
