I am a qualified and experienced Supervisor for both trainees and qualified counsellors/psychotherapists. I currently offer one to one sessions online usually of 50 minutes but I can be flexible with timings if you prefer.
I believe that supervision is a collaboration between supervisor and supervisee. I believe that supervision should be supportive, which might include helping the supervisee to develop reflective thinking, encouraging responsibility and challenging when necessary. I also believe that empathy and having an understanding of both the supervisee’s and client’s processes is very important for a beneficial supervisory relationship.
I provide a confidential space for counsellors and psychotherapists to discuss their client work as well as the processes which may be encountered within the triad of client-counsellor/therapist-supervisor.
I am able to provide reports or other admin if required by trainees but these need to be discussed in advance.
I suggest an initial session of 50 minutes to discuss possible supervision requirements.
This allows you to explain what you expect from supervision, and for me to explain how I work. We can discuss both our modalities of working and your client group and see if this seems compatible. This is also an opportunity to discuss and collaborate on a good working agreement. This might include a detailed contract regarding practicalities such as frequency of meetings and venue, timing of sessions, missed sessions, holidays, emergency arrangements etc.
I am committed to on-going professional development and training and I subscribe to and am guided by the UKCP and the BACP codes of ethics for good practice, which includes my own continuing supervision of my supervising.
