Supervision

Providing Counsellors with passionate, dynamic supervision to achieve the very best in your professional development

The Supervision I provide to counsellors covers a number of areas  and varies depending on the needs of the supervisee. The over riding reason for supervision is to ensure that clients are safe and that counsellors practice ethically (most will need to adhere to the BACP or UKCP code).

 

Often when training the question of,  'how to use supervision most effectively' is not always a

addressed fully and can leave counsellors not taking full advantage of how supervision can help in their work.

I believe supervision to be so much more that something you have to do to adhere to the criteria of your professional body.

Passionate supervision encourages you to avoid complacency, embrace new ideas, look at alternative view points and build on your knowledge base providing: 

  • A positive and understanding supervisory working alliance,  whilst I trained in Integrative Supervision covering Person Centred, CBT and Psychodynamic approaches I also welcome working with all orientations and have supervised a number of other approaches

  • A range of methods to give accurate and constructive feed back

  • A non-judgemental space for you to explore your client work, allowing you to raise any issues that you feel maybe impacting on the progress of the therapy

  •  Reflection on your client work and help with looking at ways of improving how you work with your clients

  • Encouraging you to acknowedge your progress and recognise achievements

  • Personal counselling where what is happening in your personal life may or is impacting on your practice

  • Recognition of the additional issues raised when working within an organisation

  • Education and putting theory into practice, this will be more important for student counsellors and can include help with academic work, it will also include individual course requirements such as assessments these are charged as a separate fee

  • ​​​A recognition of your own level of experience, thus tailoring supervision to your specific needs. This relationship will change over time and as the supervisee gains more experience the emphasis moves towards that of collaboration.

"Individual supervision can give us a boundaried space to explore the shadow side of our reactions to our clients, to say the unsayable to recognise the unthinkable, as well as to honour and respect and feel genuine compassion for the suffering and pain of the people we see. It also gives us a glimpse of our shadow, our over emphasis on intuition and other professional pitfalls, for example our tendency to manage other people's lives, our inclination to want the best for people, or looking out of the same window rather too often."
