Meg Hughes, Dip. Psych, MBACP, Counselling, Psychotherapy, Supervision
Hello and welcome. I can provide clinical supervision on a regular basis for trainee and qualified counsellors/psychotherapists, mental health workers and others working with adults and CYP's (11-18 yrs) for example staff in school settings and peer mentors.
I gained my Certificate in Supervision (December 2016) from the Manchester Institute for Psychotherapy, Chorlton.
Supervision is one of the most important aspects of our continuing development as therapists or staff working with mental health. It is important that we take our time to decide who we choose and how they can meet our needs.
I can offer you a humanistic and integrative supervisory approach informed by BACP Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions 2018. My aim is to enable a respectful and collaborative style to our work together whilst facilitating continuing professional growth and development for all.
I think that this quote from Hawkins & Shohet(1989) explains what to expect from good supervision:-
'Supervision is a joint endeavor in which a practitioner with the help of the supervisor, attends to their clients, themselves as part of their client practitioner relationships and the wider systemic context, and by so doing improves the quality of their work, transforms the client relationships, continuously develops themselves, their practice and the wider profession.'
As well as being a supervisor, I have 9 years of experience working as a counsellor of adults and couples in my successful and thriving private practice. I have counselled children and young people in educational settings for the last 8 years and volunteered as a counsellor and assessor with Stockport Women's Centre for 5 years. I have a wide experience of my own individual, group and peer supervision with different supervisors. I have extensive knowledge of working with anxiety, depression, domestic abuse, childhood sexual abuse, relationship and family issues, loss and bereavement. In my previous career as a teacher, I supervised trainee teachers as part of their PGCE requirements.
I can offer you a free phone call to explore the possibility of working together and no-obligation first session. This will give us both the opportunity to ask any questions we may have about each other and for us both to decide if we can work together. I am happy to refer you to another supervisor if that is required.

If the cost of the sessions is difficult for you I am happy to discuss your requirements and come to a suitable agreement.
Please feel free to call or email me if you have any questions. If I am unable to answer your call please leave a voicemail and I will get back to you at the earliest opportunity.
