I have been a qualified supervisor for almost 10 years and have supported many student and qualified counsellors both as
private supervisees and also as counsellors within a counselling agency in a college. I worked as a counselling
tutor for several years and as an agency manager, and am very aware of the challenges student counsellors face
and the importance of the supervision relationship. I have also supported experienced counsellors through the
process of BACP accreditation.
I believe supervision should be supportive, stimulating and restorative, where you have a safe space to openly explore all elements of your client work and professional development and feel valued and held as well as challenged.
As a supervisor, I work with the 7-eyed process model conceived by Hawkins and Shohet as this places high importance on the relationships in the counselling & supervision process. I offer a space for counsellors to engage with open exploration and curiosity of all elements of their client work. My own training is Integrative, based on humanistic principles. I am informed by and work with elements of TA, gestalt, existential and psychodynamic theory.
It is important for you to find the right supervisor, and I therefore offer an initial 40 minute session for £25 so that you can come and meet me before deciding if you would like to have ongoing supervision.
The cost for supervision is:
Qualified counsellors - £45 per hour.
Student counsellors - £35 per hour.
I am experienced in providing consultancy support to members of the caring profession; including managers, teachers and nurses. If this sounds like a service that would benefit you or your organisation, please contact me to discuss.
Supervision/Counsultancy support is also available for small groups (up to four). Please enquire for further information.
