I am a Counselling Supervisor who works with Trainee and Practising Counsellors. I provide both Individual and Group Supervision.
My qualifications include a Post Graduate Certificate in Counselling Supervision ( Gloucester University).
I am an Integrative/Supervisor using three supervision models. I am attentive to restorative tasks( Inskipp & Proctor,1993) that involve the provision of space for change, to explore opportunities or discharge emotions and re-charge energies, ideas and creativities. When applying Hawkins& Shohet (2000) model of supervision, my main focus is on the '5th eye' i.e. my relationship with my supervisee in the here and now. Furthermore I primarily focus on stage 3- 'space' and a subdivision of stage 1 'relationship' (Page & Woskett,2001).
As a Supervisor for student trainees I support them in their development and training as counsellors. Also as Supervisor I aim to ensure that my supervisee are addressing their and their client's needs and monitor the relationship(Counsellor/client) by focusing on my relationship with my supervisee.The relationship between supervisor and supervisee is the heart of the matter.
I provide independent counselling supervision in accordance with BACP's Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
