Barbara Freeman MBACP Reg, Counselling Supervisor OCN, ACTO
I support professionals in counselling, psychotherapists and those working in health & education, who wish to reflect on & develop their professional role.
As most counsellors and supervisors are currently working online or over the phone, I felt it was important for me to undergo further training to provide effective online support. I am now also a qualified member of ACTO and am awaiting accreditation.
As a Supervisor, I try to develop a relationship built on mutual respect, trust & honesty and adapt to my supervisee's individual learning needs and level of experience.
I try to create a supportive, non-judgemental, restorative space to provide you with the opportunity to reflect on your therapeutic work, receive feedback and guidance. My fundamental approach is to encourage you to learn and gain confidence, to ensure you practice ethically so you are able to give your clients the best emotional and therapeutic support they deserve.
Supervision is a process, which acknowledges that each person is unique and I am open to working with different modalities provided we both feel we are a ‘good fit’.
I offer a free first consultation as I feel it is vital to work with someone you feel comfortable with. This first session is about getting to know each other and there is no pressure to make a decision straight away.
My fee thereafter for individual supervision is:
£60 per 1 1/2 hours or a reduced fee of £50 for students.
