- I work as a clinical supervisor supervising counsellors during their training and post qualifying. I provide supervision/staff support to voluntary organisations and individuals requiring external non-managerial supervision.
- My supervision orientation is integrative which enables me to work with supervisees in creative ways. I see the value of supervision as bound up in the relationship with the person just as significant as how we engage with our clients. I work with a sensitivity to understanding and using the transference as a way of informing my supervisory practice.
- Psychosexual therapy brings its own challenges as clients have a wealth of knowledge from their own experiences in particular their early experiences. Fully assessing clients can elucidate our histories and encourage ways to make changes. Supervision is useful in exploring when to enable clients to obtain specialist services.
- I am committed to supporting supervisees with ways of managing their day to day clinical work. Listening to others requires counsellors to have clear boundaries and therefore adequate self-care. Those of us who work face to face with people are all care-givers and it is essential that we are able to give back to ourselves. Good enough supervision is something to be valued.
