I am a qualified supervisor with over 500 hours of supervisory experience working both 1:1 and in groups, with qualified therapists and student counsellors. As supervisor to students, this includes report writing for college and university placements.
I am an Integratively qualified counsellor with a person-centred approach to therapy. I draw on my knowledge of Clarkson’s 5 Relational Model and am also informed and integrate Gestalt, Existentialism, Attachment Theory, Transactional Analysis, and some Cognitive Behavioural Therapy into my supervisory practice. I also integrate create supervision into my practice using a range of resources.
I will tailor the supervision I provide to suit your needs based on what we discuss, agree and contract for our work together as I recognise you are as individual as the clients you support.
My supervision practice is based on Inskipp & Proctor’s (2001) Tasks of Supervision, drawing on the Formative, Normative and Restorative approach. Thus it is my aim and intention to provide you with a supportive, safe and guiding relationship whilst offering education, learning and development and monitoring of practice.
As supervisor, I have a responsibility to ensure your safe and ethical practice to promote both the welfare of you, as therapist, and your client.
I do not approach the supervisory relationship as ‘expert’ but see it as a collegial ‘coming together’ where supervisor and supervisee share a duty of care to both client’s and the counselling profession to ensure ethical standards are maintained as set out by the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice.
I am able to offer face-to-face and online supervision on a 1:1 or group basis.
