I always enjoyed my own supervision and I love to supervise since 2012 other supportive and counselling professionals or trainees. The supervision for professionals can be challenging, caring, informative, supportive and helpful, and offers the advice and guidance you might need from time to time.
I studied counselling from 2005 in the UK and worked since 2007 with clients in England. Before 2005 I worked therapeutically for more then 20 years in The Netherlands as a Gestalt and Body therapist, as well as working as an expressive arts teacher in dance and drama. Now i am based on the person-centred model I am striving to be congruent, unconditional and empathic.
Supervision needs to hold you safe when you doubt, offering solutions when needed, to challenge your case work so you know how to be the best for your client, and offering learning in theory and practice to find new ways and to develop further skills.
For me supervision does not mean only working or talking. In order to find new ways to work with clients, we often need to engage the creative and non-analytical side of our brain. It has been proven to be very effective in the supervisiory process and enlightens hidden aspects of yourself, your counselling work and the therapeutic relationship with your clients. Therefore I offer to incorporate art medias, embodied therapy, mindfulness and gestalt methods into my supervision work.
I offer supervision in Shrewsbury, Chester and Oswestry or online with video counselling. You are welcome to have a short free introductory meeting to find out if we can and like to work together.
I have been working in private practice and within 3 Charities in Shropshire as a supervisor after successfully completing the supervisor course for Cruse Bereavement Care, accredit by Aventis in July '12.
