For myself, the most important part of Supervision is the relationship I have between myself and my Supervisee. This is an important part of my Private Practice and my own work with counselling clients. It is key to the work we will do together.
Counselling is by its very nature a ‘lonely’ job that can involve little interaction with others outside of the clients themselves.
This means that it can sometimes be difficult to monitor and track progress and stop you from getting into ‘bad habits.’ Supervision provides a space for you to properly acknowledge and challenge any blind spots in your practice and think about you may handle situations better in the future.
It encourages regular, ongoing reflection to ensure that you continue working in an ethical, safe and professional way. Being in supervision not only provides greater information about the client and how they are experiencing you, but also increases your level of self-awareness and confidence.
Now bit about me. I work from my practice in Kingsdown. I have 15 years of experience of private practice. I also work in a primary school one day a week and work alongside the majority of the local secondary schools. I work face to face, telephone and on zoom. I am also an outdoors counsellor and very passionate about this. I also run a walk and talk session for free for people in the area.
I work integrally and this is how I supervise. I work with qualified counsellors and trainees. I supervise one to one and can do groups if preferred.
My supervision rates are £35 per hour
My contact details are 07515 704904 and my email address is email@example.com
I do not work with eating disorders and custody cases.
I also cannot work with someone who is being supervised for accreditation purposes.
