I have been a qualified Supervisor for the over 6 years and have a BSc Hons in Integrative Counselling which is both Person Centered and Creative Based.
Having been a Counsellor for over 14 years, completing in excess of 10000 supervised clinical hours I feel able to offer a lot experience to other counsellors seeking supervision.
My Counselling/supervision is in line with my personal philosophy, in that we are all unique and grow anddevelop in different ways.
I believe that there is no single way to Counsell or Supervise, therefore my supervision is based on a combination from a wide range of training and clinical experience. My supervision diploma was based in the cyclical model of Supervision, which broadly contains every aspect of supervision within a solid and safe structure. It majors in the system of appraisal, education, support and the relationship. It is flexible, this is important to me because I believe all people and sessions defy neat definition, the cyclical model although flexible is also ridged where boundaries etc. are concerned.
My aim is to be as open as possible and to work in collaboration with my supervisees, allowing them the freedom to float between any and all areas, knowing that they are met where ever they are. To encourage, educate and enhance their self-awareness, assisting skills and insights, enabling better exploration of the process and the client’s needs and issues.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have, I would be pleased to answer them.
