Diane Elizabeth Blake MBACP (Accred) & UKCP Reg (Accred).
I am an Accredited BACP Counsellor and UKCP Psychotherapist. I qualified and have worked as a Counsellor since 2003 and have since qualified as an Accredited UKCP Psychotherapist in 2016. I have held a Supervision Diploma since 2009 and am currently in the process of finishing a further Supervision training following my in-depth training as a Psychotherapist, working Relationally and Developmentally. I have experience supervising Trainee and Qualified Therapists.
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 endeavour 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: £45 per hour for one to one. Group (2 - 4) supervision also available.
I am able to see Supervisees in my counselling room in Beverley, and at my Therapy room at home in Watton near Driffield. I also offer Online Supervision.
