“Something unknown is doing...... we don't know what.” (Eddington)Effective Counselling is demanding, it can drain your inner resources, consume your energies and raise questions that you need to take somewhere. I acknowledge the importance of paying attention to use of theories from humanistic, transpersonal, psychodynamic, transactional analysis, existential and cognitive approaches. I am interested in transference/counter-transference issues, unconscious and parallel processes, the use of metaphor and symbolism.
Supervision is support for your challenging vocation: my role as a supervisor is to guide you in working ethically for the best interests of your clients; widen your self-awareness as a therapist and encourage you to build upon your skills. Supervision is a collaborative process: to explore the issues that concern supervisees in their work. I acknowledge the importance of unconscious process and how it may be revealed through paying attention to the therapeutic relationship. I also acknowledge that our identities are shaped by forces that are physical and neurobiological, emotional, intellectual, and transpersonal. I work with the knowledge that our inner worlds are profoundly impacted by social, cultural and economic factors. Supervision draws upon years of experience: I have worked in many clinical settings, voluntary and private sectors holding a variety of roles, being deeply engaged with a range of therapeutic orientations and cultural contexts.
I am committed to offering my supervisees a relationship which is supportive and non-judgmental; where I enable the therapist to continue to grow and develop into the most effective therapist they can be, thus enabling the therapist to work skillfully and ethically with their clients. I work as an integrative therapist and supervisor. I firmly believe that the therapeutic alliance is the main ingredient of therapeutic change. I also use this belief as the fundamental basis for an effective working alliance, with the Supervisor and Supervisee. I believe that Counselling Supervision is a contracted, professional relationship, that provides the Counsellor with numerous opportunities to reflect upon their work with their clients, in a safe, secure, welcoming, confidential environment. As a qualified and experienced Supervisor, I provide emotional support, professional guidance, and the professional space to enhance and develop your therapeutic understanding, and a Super VISION that helps you to monitor your work with your clients. As a trained and experienced Supervisor I draw on, and utilise a number of different models of supervision. I regularly attend courses to enhance my personal development My supervision is aimed at an emotional and theoretical level, covering difficult and sensitive areas, transference and counter transference issues with a view to enabling the practitioner to handle the material more effectively whilst bringing my extensive experience to bear in protecting your professional position.
