I am a qualified supervisor having gained a diploma in individual and group supervision with Cascade training Associates.
I have several years experience of giving clinical supervision to individuals and groups.
i offer supervision to trainees, qualified therapists and anyone working in the caring or support professions this includes individual and group supervision.
What is supervision?
…..the sense of supervision as being an oases or a fireside, a place where the weary traveller can take some respite and nourishment to continue his or her professional journey
(Hewson, 2008, p.34)
It is a professional working relationship for the purpose of making the counsellor more effective in their client work. Hawkins & Shohet (2009, p.57) state that the BACP in their first document state that ‘the primary purpose of supervision is to protect the best interests of the client’.
I have found that supervision is an essential for any counsellor/psychotherapist and anyone working with vulnerable people
