Supervision is a formal arrangement for therapist to discuss their counselling work with someone who is experienced in both Supervision and Counselling.  The task is to work together to develop effectiveness of the therapist client relationship. The agenda will be namely feelings about the work, reactions and interventions used by the  counsellor. The aim is to ensure adequate professional standards are maintained, deepen the counsellor’s knowledge and awareness, and address any ethical issues and the opportunity to identify any blind spots you as counsellor may not have be aware of.

By it’s very nature, therapy can have huge demands on us as therapist, we can become over- involved, ignore important aspect of counselling, become confused as to what is taking place in the therapeutic relationship, feel undermined, deskilled, judged, and sometimes even inadequate. Even personal issues in our private life can interfere with our effectiveness to deliver therapeutic change.

It’s extremely difficult to be objective about our work, sometimes even impossible. Therefore having the space to raise concerns or issues about ones work is vital.

The objective of Supervision is to monitor the quality of work  being carried out, support the supervisee to maintain standards, ensure well-being of both client and supervisee. As a Supervisor, I have a responsibility to my supervisee and their clients. From time to time this may require having to challenge the work and interventions being used. Any concerns will be discussed and evaluated within the supervision relation.

Your 1st appointment will be an assessment to determine our fit, and your requirements.

If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.
