I have a Diploma in Casework Supervision and have fifteen years plus experience supervising a variety of practitioners.
I offer Person-Centred supervision to individuals and groups, face-to-face, by telephone and via Skype. I work with qualified counsellors, student counsellors and a variety of supervisees, which include: youth workers; social workers; student nurses; managers; nursery staff and CBT counsellors.
I view my own regular supervision as essential for me (as well as ethically required), to freely explore all aspects of my therapeutic work in a safe, supportive and gently challenging environment. This keeps my practise fresh, vibrant and healthy. It also keeps me supported; held; challenged and enabled and ready to go wherever my clients and supervisees need me to go with them..
I have taught all levels of counsellor training, in colleges and universities, over many years. I have been told by student counsellors that working with me has sometimes "filled in some significant gaps" in understanding the theory and process of counselling and enabled greater trust not only in the counselling process: his or her client's process, but in the self of the counsellor as well. If a supervisee wishes to bring tapes for feedback, that's fine with me (I strongly encourage this!). If a supervisee wishes to use art materials, to help them describe their client or their own feelings around the client, that's fine too. They are freely available in my dedicated therapy room.
I believe it is of utmost importance, to receive high support and sometimes high challenge in supervision, but in a non-threatening and non-judgemental way. I aim to offer a safe and confidential space where my supervisees can bring all of themselves as a practitioner....the areas where further learning is necessary and also to CELEBRATE success! Who else can we share with when our clients make those 'magic-moment' connections or have 'light-bulb' experiences? Due to the confidentiality of our work, we cannot share those with anyone...except our supervisor.
No-one knows your practise as you do. No-one knows your clients like you do. I work hard to offer my knowledge and experience as supportive feedback and am ready and willing to engage in an effective, supervisory relationship.
I offer an initial meeting without charge, of 30 minutes to see if we would like to work together.
