Grainne James MA, Dip. C. Dip. Psych Counsellor Coach Supervisor MBACP
As part of my professional development I trained as a clinical supervisor. As a counsellor, I noticed that a lot of the clients who were contacting me were counsellors, health care professional, teachers, social care workers or trainee counsellors. I recognised the importance of supervision and chose to take further training to be able to provide the best support possible. I trained in an integrative model which includes the therapist, their clients and the supervisor/therapist relationship. This holistic model provides a robust structure to support both the therapist and their clients in effecting change.
My aim is to create an environment where supervisees can feel confident to share their client work, their thoughts, actions and interventions. Using our therapeutic relationship to develop an exchange of ideas whilst ensuring ethical competence for the therapist and their client.
