Helen Chambers MBACP (Accred.)
I provide counselling supervision to counsellors and counsellors-in-training from my private practice in Hanham, Bristol. I aim to create an open and warm environment where you will feel supported to bring your concerns about your clients or any difficulties or issues within your work. Counselling can be demanding and challenging work and I understand the stresses it can bring as well as the rewards.
As within counselling, I believe it is the relationship of trust between supervisor and supervisee which allows for creative thinking about the work and the ability to see things from new perspectives. I see the process of supervision as a collaborative one but also see the supervisor's role as one of providing safe containment and a space to be psychologically 'held' in the work.
Qualifications and Experience
I gained my Certificate in Counselling Supervision from the University of Wales, Newport in 2003 and have since supervised both experienced counsellors and those in training. I have also supported several counsellors through the process applying for of BACP accreditation.
My own theoretical background is integrative, drawing mainly from psychodynamic and person-centred theory. I am also interested in existential and psychoanalytic approaches to counselling and psychotherapy.
Sessions last for 50 minutes and cost £38.
