Supervisor Alex Pledger
Getting the right supervision that meets both your professional and personal needs as a therapist is one of the best ways to stay safe and sane in our job. Just like our clients, we need a place where we can talk about what is going on:
- In our relationships with clients
- With our caseload
- In the context of the organisation we work in
- In our private practice
- In our career as whole
My approach to supervision is to support the person because if YOU are doing well – feeling confident, motivated and skilled – your clients will do well too.
I work in an integrative style, combining person-centred, CBT and psychodynamic theories, but I also combine my knowledge from my coaching experience so we can tackle problems and difficult decisions in a solution-focused way.
Over the last nearly 20 years I have worked consistently running my own private practice so my special interest is working with therapists in private practice - helping them set up a new service, getting through the accreditation process, and providing business mentoring where needed. I have also worked in the NHS, private health sector, schools and Employee Assistance Programmes so I have a wide range of experience to help you with whatever context you are working in.
I currently only work with qualified counsellors.
I offer a warm welcome at my therapy centre in Moseley. I also offer supervision and private practice mentoring via Skype. My fees are £50 per hour or £75 for 1.5 hours.
If you are in private practice you may also be interested in joining the BACP West Midlands Private Practice Networking Group. We meet every couple of months to make contact, share ideas and to get support from each other. You can find details on the BACP Events Calendar.
