Joyce Howitt MBACP (Accred) and (Snr Accred Supervisor)
I regard Supervision as a collegial relationship between the supervisor and the counsellor where the supervisor, contrary to the image of the ‘work place supervisor is a mentor and guide rather than an ‘overseer’. Through encouragement, support, affirmation and challenge together we monitor and evaluate the counselling process and where appropriate I will try to help you to find new ways of looking at yourself and your client to enable you to work more effectively with that client.
I have a Certificate in Supervision and use either a linear model of supervision or an integrative approach based on Page and Wosket’s Cyclical Model and Hawkins and Shohet’s Process Model depending on the needs of the individual counsellor and the requirements of his/her professional setting. As an experienced integrative counsellor I am familiar with the Person Centred, Psychodynamic, CBT and TA theoretical approaches to counselling.
I am a BACP Senior Accredited Supervisor (Individuals), and an Accredited ACC Supervisor.
My fees are: £35 per hour; £45 per 1.5 hours (concessions available for students and those working solely in voluntary agencies).
