Lisa Finch MBACP(Accred) Counsellor/Psychotherapist & Supervisor

Broadstone, Poole, Dorset, BH18
07769 539340 07769 539340 Registered / Accredited

I  qualified in 2012 as a Supervisor, with a CPCAB Level 6 in Therapeutic Supervision. I provide individual and group clinical supervision to private practitioners, trainee counsellors, and organisations who are in the mental health or caring professions, both face to face and online.  

Good supervision is paramount when working in the helping professions. YOU are the 'instrument of your trade' and your well-being and professionalism is important to enable you to be present and effective with your clients, providing them with a high quality service.

With an integrative humanistic approach, you will be provided with a safe, confidential space to reflect and explore the boundaries, dynamics and effectiveness of your working relationships, whilst maintaining  awareness of your work-life energy balance.

Often we ignore the 'grey areas' that exist when engaging in exploration of client material and miss out on the opportunity to grow in our professional and personal awareness. Underpinned with Inskipp and Proctors' Tasks of Supervision (Normative, Formative and Restorative) and Hawkins and Shohets' 7 Eyed Supervision Models (Focus on the client, interventions, relationship, therapist process, supervisory relationship, supervisor process and wider context.), you can address the multi-dimensional levels of your diverse client work and gain insight into your practice, ensuring safe-guarding and enabling optimum well-being for both you and your clients.

Since 2002 I have practiced continuously and developed within an integrative humanistic style. I am BACP Accredited and provide a holistic therapeutic approach to my clients. I also have a CPCAB  Level 5 Certificate qualifying me as a Young Person's Counsellor.  I have a SEPT Accredited Foundation Certificate in Family Therapy which underpins my parent support work. I have an NVQ Level 3 in Tackling Substance Misuse and extensive experience in working with addictions, including gambling. 

Additionally I have undertaken extensive training to support my work with trauma and the symptomatic effects that can be caused to psychical and mental health. I have also undertaken vocational training in working with couples and offer psychotherapy and counselling  to young people, adults, couples and support and mediation to families.

Having worked as part of a multi-agency team for eight years, I have gained extensive experience of participating in statutory and third sector supervisory support, working with clients who had varying complex needs. In addition to this, I initiated  'Good Practice' support meetings, facilitating and targeting areas of professional and personal development for practitioners.

Other areas:

Understand your emphatic and energetic connections

Develop confidence in using creative and therapeutic interventions 

Develop awareness in working with attachment

Develop awareness in trauma and neuroscience

Working with diversity

Discover strategies in conserving your energy

Take care of your personal self

Optimise your professional presence and development

Fees: £45 per hour. £65 per 90 mins.

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.
