Susan Muir - MBACP (Accred)
I love being a Supervisor for Counsellors or other Professions ( e.g. health care staff, teachers, clinicians). If you are qualified or in training I welcome you equally. I am an Approved Supervisor for Counselling Students at The University of Edinburgh.
I aim to offer a safe, empathic, non judgemental space to use exactly how you need to. This may be for sharing and reflecting on your work; developing an ethical practice that is unique to you or looking at your self care.
I take pride in developing trusting relationships and have found Supervision to be an inspiring, supportive space where we can learn together.
I have a Certificate in Person Centred Counselling Supervision from Aberdeen University and it is the principles of Person Centred Theory that inform my work.
I work from a lovely purpose built counselling room in my garden and can offer times between 8am and 8pm weekdays. I am also able to meet via skype.
If you would like to get in touch to consider this further, please do-there is no obligation to continue if it doesn't feel right.
My hourly rate is £50, or £70 for an hour and a half. I offer Counsellors in training an hourly rate of £40. I offer an initial hour for £30.
"It's heart warming to realise that I have had Susan as my supervisor since 2013 to this day. This period covered different stages of my career development, such as my doctoral training and later my private practice in the UK and now abroad. Susan has added unquestionable value to my therapeutic work by offering me supportive insights and by looking after both my clients and myself personally. I find that Susan's approach has helped us create a supervision relationship that is respectful, considerate and supportive. Also, I am pleased that through delivering online supervision, Susan has helped me to continue to receive quality professional support from abroad. Our sessions have become a precious time for reflection on my work and on any themes that I look forward to bring up and discuss.

"Working with Susan has been invaluable to my learning and development as a fledgling counsellor, I couldn't have asked for a better Supervisor to accompany on my journey. Her gentle, warm and considered approach, alongside her wealth of experience, has offered me a safe and supportive place to bring myself and my client work, as I explored and considered my thoughts, chunkiness and processes. Susan’s honesty and ability to gently challenge has helped me to trust in my own growing skills and confidence as a professional."

"My experience of Susan as a supervisor has been of a gentle, thoughtful and supportive presence. Susan encourages me to explore my competencies, pursue the work and training opportunities I am interested in, and to view my practice and client work from different angles. Working with Susan as my supervisor has allowed me to reflect on my client work in a safe, supportive environment with an experienced and thoughtful fellow therapist."

Working with Susan has supported me to link theory to practice and develop a caring, professional way of working that is unique to me. I have felt such care from her and this in itself has been key in my development as a counsellor and person. L 2017
