How do I view supervision?
The main purpose of supervision is the professional development of the supervisee and the welfare of the client. I believe that a supervisor and supervisee can be co-creators of a learning experience which focuses on new ways of thinking and learning.
I specialise in working with counsellors who counsel young people and those therapists who are looking to review their contracting and boundaries with clients.
What is my role in the session?
Within a professional and contracted relationship my role is flexible. With consideration to the developmental stage of the counsellor I see the tasks of supervision as follows:
• to create a learning relationship
• to value and support
• to consult
• to teach
• to counsel (limited)
• to evaluate
• to monitor ethical/professional issues
I offer supervision from a humanistic approach. I work with adults, children, adolescents and couples. I am able to access other models of counselling through extensive professional development and training.
I work experientially and understand the process of supervision for both supervisee and client. With clear and transparent contracting I work with supervisees to develop their work with clients as well as focusing on their own personal development. I currently work with counsellors, senior management and volunteer key workers in a supervisory capacity.
‘Supervision provides an opportunity for the student to capture the essence of the psychotherapeutic process as it is articulated and modeled by the supervisor, and to recreate it in the counselling relationship.’
