Dawn Haworth MSc. UKCP Registered & EMDR Practitioner
Supervision and EMDR Consultancy is more than a professional requirement, it’s time out; somewhere to reflect on how you are coping and your client’s progression; a place to seek clarification; an opportunity for personal and professional development, self-care and ethical practice.
You may be independent in your counselling room, but with supportive supervision you’re not alone. I strive to provide a Supervision and Consultancy service that gives you time and space to safely explore your feelings, thoughts, fears and questions. None of which are insignificant, questions are signals that it’s time to seek clarification. Even experienced counsellors, psychotherapists and EMDR practitioners have questions or times when they feel deskilled or off balance. It’s times like these when supervision can rejuvenate, inspire and prepare you to return to your practice and continue the life changing work you do.
Counselling or psychotherapy can be an isolating profession, especially for those who are self-employed. There is no doubt that delivering these services is rewarding, and there is no better feeling than a client being discharged because they are ready to live life without our support. For a profession that’s all about connection it can leave practitioners feeling unsupported and out on a limb. Supervision provides a safe and confidential place for practitioners to be open and honest; to share their hopes and fears; to have a person to turn to when the going gets tough; or to celebrate with. These conversations cannot take place in day-to-day interactions because of the professional boundaries and confidentiality that surrounds our work. I’m interested to discover what you need and here to help you fulfil those needs.
