Supervision details

 I am a qualified supervisor with a Post Graduate Diploma in Supervision and I offer individual and/ or group supervision for counsellors and students.  My approach is predominantly person centred but  I also use other approaches such as C.B.T, T.A and Gestalt in my own practise so that my supervision is very inclusive. I feel that it is important to be able to support trainees with their own issues and with the issues that their clients bring. I also feel that it is very important for qualified  counsellors to have regular supervision to keep themselves and their clients safe.  Supervision  for students can be a valuable learning tool as well as a way to access different experience and for qualified counsellors a safe place to discuss client work. I have also found from my own experience of supervision that it important to discuss any ethical and personal effects that may arise for a counsellor while they are working with a client  I am a supervisor for C.A.S.Y which is counselling for children and young people which is based in Newark and the work is primarily with school age children. I also work with qualified counsellors that work for the Children's Bereavement Centre and  I.S.A.S. in Newark which deals with Insest and sexual abuse. I do supervision in the private sector and have supervisee's both trained and qualified that work in various settings.In all cases I offer one and a half hours of supervision to the B.A.C.P guidelines. At the moment I am working towards my accreditation with the BACP and updating information on the new ethical guidelines.
