Jackie Rowanly Senior Accredited Counsellor (MBACP)
I describe my supervision work as supervisee-centred. This is because I believe that as therapists we provide the best service to our clients when we become as finely tuned an instrument as possible. Thus, I encourage my supervisees to bring the whole of themselves to supervision. I am particularly interested in what is happening in the here-and-now of the supervision session as this may give us valuable information about what is taking place within the counselling. For counsellors based in organizations, the impact of the organization on the therapeutic work is another aspect we will take in to consideration.
As a qualified supervisor I have supervised trainee counsellors through to well-established practitioners, individually and in groups. This has been provided through organizations and my private practice.
I love supervision and I consider it invaluable. Because of this I offer supervision to complementary health practitioners, so that they may have the benefit of a regular supportive yet challenging space for themselves. This can improve the quality of service to the client whilst assisting the practitioner in developing professionally.
