I have been a counsellor for 12 years and recently undertook the training to become a developmental supervisor, and qualified in March 2021.
My many years of practice in different areas of counselling has been wonderfully supported by excellent supervision. For me Supervision is about providing a warm and facilitative relationship which can help to support you in the often complex work we do in the therapy professions. Supervision can support you to develop your learning and your professional career. The supervisory relationship between supervisor and supervisee is a safe, confidential and unique space within which deep reflection about your clinical work, your own fears, doubts, and personal concerns can be explored. Supervision is also a learning space to support your professional development as you progress through your career.
For me being able to provide a facilitative supervision relationship for others in counselling and other care professions, is the highlight of my career to date, and feel I can offer the same high level of supervision, that I have always received.
