I am an Accredited BACP Counsellor/Psychotherapist and hold a Supervision Diploma, trained by Cascade Training.  I offer a secure, safe place for qualified and trainee Counsellors & Psychotherapists to access top quality Supervision.  One of the things which Supervisees have often requested is a place where they can be 'human' and can bring themselves with all the thoughts, feelings and questions which may arise when counselling clients.  I don't always have all the answers to questions, but endevour to develop a solid, honest working alliance with Supervisees in order that clients get the best service and Therapists feel safe and effective in their work.

Counselling and other therapies rely heavily upon the emotional health and development of the practitioners and it is Supervision which monitors and serves to maintain this.

Supervision has several roles:

Normative - taking responsibility for standards and ethics and good practice.
Formative - sharing responsibility for the development of the worker in skills, knowledge and understanding.
Restorative - providing opportunities for discharge and re-charge, support and help in 'finding your feet', as well as celebrating successes and work well done.Perspective - taking an overview of the Supervisee's work.

In my experience, all these roles are essential for the Supervisee to be working ethically, mindfully and safely and effectively, for their own well-being as well as that of the client.  As with any psychotherapy and counselling experience, the relationship is of key importance.  The Supervisee and Supervisor are of equal importance in the success and effectiveness of Supervision.  This is a 'collegial' relationship - colleague to colleague, with two or more minds focussing on the issue in order to help the Supervisee work at their best with their clients.

Fees: £40 per hour for one to one - negotiable reduction for students.                £60 per hour and half for group of three.

I am able to see Supervisees in my counselling room in Beverley on Tues/Weds, or at my home in Kilnwick near Driffield on other days.
