Introduction
Quinn (2000) states that reflection is to recollect a past experience and the feelings it produced. Bolton (2005) believes that when using reflection to supplement a learning experience;
“Effective reflection and reflectivity does not allow anything to be taken for granted” (Bolton, 2005, Pg 66)
McCabe and Timmins (2006) support this view and go further to suggest that if reflection is solely the work of one person with no input from others there could be missing information and a lack ...view middle of the document...

There are many models of reflection, Duffy (2007) mentions Johns’ (1995) model (see appendix 1) as being straightforward to understand and encouraging of in-depth reflection, however the leading questions can leave little scope for the practitioner to take their own pathway. Johns (2004) feels that he has tested and made relevant changes to his model over a period of time (see appendix 2), thus making it less elaborate than some frameworks. Wilding (2008) sees Gibbs (1988) reflective cycle (see appendix 3) as less structured and easier for beginners to use. He states that it is not difficult to understand and therefore easier to engage with. McCabe and Timmins (2006) point out that Gibbs (1988) model can lead the practitioner to just reflect on the negative and search for a change of outcomes when one is not needed……………………………………………………………………………………. …..

Chosen Model of Reflection
The author has found evidence by way of statements and quotes to suggest that Gibbs’ (1988) Reflective cycle (see appendix 3) is easy to use and therefore a good starting point for the new practitioner.
Ghaye and Lillyman (2001) point out that Gibbs model (see appendix 3) has six parts to it; each of these has a relevant question to be answered. The questions would be answered in a certain order, following on from one another and creating a cycle of reflection. A cycle is repetitive which means that there should be an improvement in understanding of feelings and knowledge as the practitioner travels around it. McCabe and Timmins (2006) feel that the questions are too leading and can make the practitioner look for the bad elements in their experience. The Author agrees that the questions guide the practitioner but suggests that whilst the focus could be on the negative elements of their experience, this should only occur if there were such elements to be found. If there were negative elements...
