Brenda Clowes MBACP COSRT
I have been a BACP accredited Supervisor for 25 years and am currently supervising counsellors working in many settings including Bereavement Services, Infertility Clinics, Psychotherapy Clinics, NHS Sexual Health Clinics, and Couple Counselling and Psychosexual and Relationship Counselling in Private Practice and Individual Counselling in Private Practice, in short or long term work.
I am Integrative in my approach to counselling and to supervision. I like to think psychodynamically taking the unconscious into account and to use the skills of other orientations. The style of the supervision is adapted to your needs.
The model that chimes most with my way of seeing supervision is that of Hawkins and Shohet described as 'A Process Model of Supervision'.
I am also concerned for the further development of the counsellor, encouraging new experiences, helping with accreditation applications, and supporting those who wish to become supervisors themselves.

Supervision of Supervision:
What has always been good practice is now becoming a requirement. Supervision of supervision is not only useful it can reveal hidden elements of the work.
