David Piner MA/PGDip MBACP AccCOSRT
I work as a Clinical Supervisor offering supervision to psychotherapists and counsellors, whether in training or qualified.
I have a Diploma in Individual and Group Supervision.
Counsellors and psychotherapists are required to have a minimum amount of supervision by his or her professional body. As a practitioner there is also an ethical imperative to be supervised.
Supervision functions to add value to counsellors work and professional development in many ways:
To ensure the counsellor is working safely and ethically
To support the counsellor's professional growth and development
To explore the impact the counsellors' clients have on them and their work
To consult on challenges and difficulties in their work
To build on the counsellors knowledge and expertise.
Supervision a space to reflect on your work, to feel held and supported.
I take an integrative perspective.
As well as general supervision, I can offer specialist supervision to counsellors and therapists working with couples, relationships and psychosexual issues.
I was a group supervisor on the University of East London’s Post-graduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy and group and individual supervisor at the charity MIND.
Online supervision is possible.
Supervision costs £50 - 60 per hour.
