I offer supervisory relationships based on respect, empathy and congruence, within which supervisees can explore and reflect upon their work.
Most people who train as counsellors are drawn to helping others, and during times of stress it can be easy to forget about self-care. It is important to notice early signs of stress and burn out, as it affects our capacity to be present and connect with our clients; to build the therapeutic relationships that make our work possible.
The BACP and other professional bodies require practitioners to monitor this, and supervision provides us with the opportunity to do so.
Good supervision can be a restorative experience. It is particularly helpful when challenging dynamics can leave counsellors stuck in difficult places, or wrestling with ethical dilemmas.
I have experience of working with counsellors, mental health workers and tutors. I would welcome enquiries from anyone working relationally with their clients.
As well as one to one supervision, I have experience of supervising groups. I also have experience of supervising student counsellors.
I offer a free Introductory Session so that we can see whether there is a good fit and we could work well together.
