Supervision details

Dear colleagues, I am looking forward to working with some of you! I chose to attend supervision training with Jenny Biancardi and Lorna Kemp in Newcastle. This course has been running for twenty one years, the vast experience was clear and felt. The overriding principle I took away is to value you in your work and to support you in knowing your own abilities, knowledge and understanding. The training is based in the person centred approach with the option of psychodrama techniques like empty chair work. This was very new to me and in the learning I could feel the benefits as it goes beyond theory to really feeling and being both the client and the counsellor.We also used artwork, stones and toys, all of which enhanced my original further education at art college. This creativity is an option to you the counsellor and not a requirement of supervision with me. We worked with two different models of supervision: Hawkins and Shohets Seven-Eyed model and the Cyclical model of Page and Wosket. We may follow either of these structured approaches or we may put our own model together based on what you feel important to you. I trained as a counsellor at Edinburgh University in both psychodynamic and person-centred theories back in 2007/9.I have been a supervisee for over fifteen years, some of that work taking place within a group/peer supervision setting. I have also supervised young mentors in a past role as a manager of volunteers.I believe supervision to be a safe place to allow honest talk, a place to share how we are working, our successes and our difficulties and a place to grow as a result of that freedom. If you are looking for a supervisor and interested in talking about the possibility of working with me do please get in touch so we can explore our relationship dynamics and see if I am the supervisor for you. With warm regards Sue  Cost £50 per hour. Initial 30 minute meeting £15 face to face or free online.
