I feel that it is extremely important that you can trust your supervisor. Many supervisees’, particularly in the early days, after their training, can be a bit fearful of supervision. I know myself, and even trained counsellor’s experiences of their past supervisory relationships can sometimes evoke memories of embarrassment, shame and judgement
I work collaboratively with supervisee’s offering a safe space without fear of judgement. I believe supervision is a place for curiosity and reflection, whilst being supportive and challenging to promote supervisee’s awareness and understanding. This is to help ensure the effective development of their counselling practice, and to enable a safe, trusting relationship.
I enjoy sharing my experience, knowledge, and training with my supervisees’ and inevitably learning from them too. I believe supervision is a two way process, as you will bring your own experience, as well as your hopes and fears to enrich the supervisory relationship.
In addition to the above, I can offer supervisee’s the benefit of my experience from my ongoing private practice, which includes extensive experience of managing risk in addition to my professional experience and continued professional development training.
In addition to my private practice, I have worked on a clinical oversight team for a counselling provider in Hull helping their counsellors manage clients difficult issues, including risk.
The supervision model I am currently practising is The Seven-Eyed Supervision model developed by Peter Hawkins and Robin Shohet.
I like The Seven Eyed model, as it focuses on the relationships between client, therapist, and supervisor and on the interplay between each relationship. The model is called “seven eyed” because it focuses on seven distinct aspects of the therapeutic process. By looking through each ‘eye’ it is possible to see a different side of the whole of your supervision session. I also incorporate aspects of Page and Wosket’s "Cyclical model".
