Phil Mitchell Dip. Couns, MBACP (Accred) Male Sexual Abuse Specialist
I hold a Post Graduate Certificate in Person Centred Supervision which was awarded to me by Temenos. I am also a BACP senior accredited supervisor.
As someone who has received and provided Person Centred counselling and supervision I have seen and experienced the benefits that this way of working can bring.
I believe that by establishing and maintaining a healthy and collaborative relationship where supervisees can experience the core conditions of empathy, genuineness and acceptance, a safe enough space can be created where various issues relating to client work, practice and professional development can be addressed, discussed and explored in a way that is helpful to the supervisee.
My role is to work with what the supervisee brings to supervision, in a non-judgemental way that can help develop their practice and grow as a counsellor. I believe I can provide the appropriate environment where supervisees can discuss any difficulties they may be experiencing, explore alternative approaches, be open to appropriate challenge and highlight what is going well.
My Supervision Experience
Since 2012 I have provided private Person Centred/eclectic supervision to qualified and trainee counsellors working in settings such schools, colleges, GP surgeries, voluntary sector services, crisis centres and other counselling organisations
I have significant experience in working with safeguarding issues and supervising counsellors and other practitioners working with children and young people in high risk situations including those involved in child sexual exploitation (CSE), those affected by trauma and those with suicidal thoughts.
