Supervision details

"Penny’s non-judgemental approach and warmth allowed me to be honest and transparent when bringing my clients’ work. That helped me to progress as a practitioner and develop professionally.  Penny’s in-depth insight brought out different angles to my work and helped me to gain a better understanding of the counselling process."    As a qualified, experienced supervisor I use the well recognised and respected Hawkins and Shohet 7 eyed model of supervision. I support supervisees in developing their own practice  and moving from trainee or voluntary roles into paid work and private practice, in a warm and non judgemental relationship. As an integrative practitioner I enjoy working collaboratively and creatively with supervisees and value the skills and experience you will bring to your counselling work. In exchange I bring in elements of psychodynamic, person centred, TA, solution focussed and play therapies to supervision.I bring the breadth of my counselling experience having worked in a women's centre, a charity supporting people with disabilities, long term unemployed, parents, primary and secondary school children and private practice.I supervise counsellors working with adults and children. I provide supervision face to face, over the phone and via Skype. I believe an open working relationship to be the foundation for effective supervision. I offer an hour long free initial session, so we can both assess if we can work well together.Fees:£40 per 60 minute session  £60 per 90 minute session Concessions for students and for those volunteering: £30 per 60 minute session £45 per 90 minute session. "I would definitely recommend Penny as a supervisor.  Thanks to her skills I have able to make the transition from trainee counsellor to professional counsellor." "Supervision has been extremely helpful to me in a number of ways. It has given me new ideas and ways to work with clients as well as building on my own experiences. I have also gained confidence throughout the supervision. I have felt totally understood and respected throughout the process which has helped me to feel valued and at ease to speak my mind."
