Sophie Thorne, PG Dip, MBACP, Accred.
I am a trained supervisor working in the Brighton area
I offer clinical supervision to both trainee and fully qualified counsellors working from a psychodynamic framework. I can also provide supervision to staff in organisations in need of clinical supervision.
I see the purpose of supervision as providing a safe, containing space in order to help you find what you need to reflect on client work, working through anxieties or difficulties, celebrating successes, thinking creatively and growing as a practitioner. In my work I like to think about the interaction of various different relationships: client/counsellor, client/supervisor, counsellor/supervisor and all of these within an organisational context; looking at interlocking relationships in this way can really help to explore the client work from many different perspectives.
Whilst I work primarily from a psychodynamic perspective, I am also trained in CBT and am open to ideas drawn from other modalities. I currently work as a supervisor at the Rock Clinic and the University of Sussex; I also work as a counsellor at both of these organisations. In the past I have also worked at Rise and at the University of Brighton. Prior to training as a counsellor, I worked as a team leader/supervisor and trainer in the corporate world, and also have experience working within the charitable sector, which I feel has given me invaluable insight into organisational dynamics and their impact on client work.
If you’re interested in supervision with me, please feel free to call me for an informal chat to discuss your requirements.
Fees: £45 per hour for qualified counsellors
£40 per hour for trainee counsellors
Supervision can be organised on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis.
