Michelle Coombes MBACP, BACP Registered, Adv.Dip. Humanistic, Higher Dip.CBT
I have been a supervisor for several years and provide counselling supervision for students and qualified counsellors. I understand how important it is to find a supervisor that you feel comfortable with and would be very happy to have a chat and discuss your individual needs over the telephone, or alternatively you can e-mail me with any queries. If you would prefer we could arrange an appointment for a meeting and fully discuss your expectations of supervision and the supervision model that I use. This first meeting would be free of charge and would give us both the opportunity to see whether we can work together.
I believe that the most important areas of the supervisor/supervisee relationship are honesty and trust, and also the non-judgemental approach of the supervisor. We will all experience client sessions that either felt good, or left us feeling de-skilled or 'stuck', and supervision is there to help us explore our work openly, honestly and safely.
I am able to provide students with supervision reports if their course requires this, and equally, can support qualified supervisees through the BACP accreditation process.
I have been in monthly supervision myself for over fourteen years, both on a one-to-one basis with my personal supervisor, and also, until recent years, in group supervision which was provided by the charity that I used to volunteer for.
My original counselling Diploma is in the Humanistic approach but I also have a Higher Diploma in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy.
The fees are £40.00 for one and half hours supervision.
