Nicola Parkinson MBACP
COVID-19 UPDATE: Due to the current situation with coronavirus, I am offering supervision via Zoom video conferencing or by telephone. Please contact me for further information.
I qualified with a post graduate diploma in supervision in 2015 with Surrey Counselling Training. Alongside the counselling work I do at the sixth form, I also work as a supervisor with both our trainee counsellors and those who are qualified within our team there.
Primarily I use the Inskipp and Proctor model of supervison working with the normative, formative and restorative sides to supervision with the normative attending to ethics, formative focusing on developing the skill, knowledge and understanding of supervisees and the restorative function in supporting the supervisee in, “Discharging held emotions and recharging energies, ideals and creativity.” (Inskipp and Proctor, 1993, p6).
In the same way as counselling, I believe that having a good working relationship is vital in the supervision process and so I aim for that to be at the heart of the way I work.
If you would like any more information or are interested in arranging a time to meet and see how we might work together then please do contact me.
