Jeanette Payne BA (Hons) MBACP Qualified Counsellor and Supervisor
Welcome and thank you for looking at my profile. To help you decide if I am the most appropriate supervisor for your needs I will give you some background information about the knowledge and skills I bring into my supervisory role; I have worked in Higher Education as a Lecturer and Supervisor of Counselling and have been a Supervisor for a Counselling Agency in Central Leicester. I hold a Certificate in Counselling and Psychotherapy Supervision and was trained by Professor Sue Wheeler fellow of the BACP and Professor Delia Cushway, both are highly qualified and renowned in the field of counselling and psychotherapy. Sue is well known for her research and published work on clinical supervision; the knowledge gained from this training ensures I work to a high level of competence and professionalism. I have worked in private practice for a number of years and rent full time business premises for my services, I am happy to assist and support counsellors with their own professional development. I am very flexible with times and will do my utmost to work around your busy schedules.
I would like you to feel very comfortable working with me and my aim is to establish a good, honest, open and trustworthy relationship. My core training is person centred and over the years I have bolted on additional training which has included CBT and solution focused therapy.
I aim to establish a trusting relationship and offer a space where your thoughts and feelings can be confidently shared so you feel comfortable and at ease within our sessions. I will support you so you feel safe to expose any vulnerability without feeling threatened or judged; I feel it is an essential element within supervision to establish an equal power base so you do not feel inhibited and can be honest in your responses.
For those in training I will help you to become more tuned into your thoughts and feelings and encourage you to explore alternative ways of viewing situations, where you learn to develop a ‘super’ vision and become more open to alternative views. I aim to facilitate your ability to develop as a reflective practitioner and build on your internal supervisor learning to listen to your internal voice, looking at what is happening while it is happening. Alongside those skills you will already have acquired I will be working with you to look at new perspectives and to gain new awareness and insight.
I charge a very competitive rate of £40 an hour for supervision and £60 for one and a half hours.
My practice has ample roadside parking and is just five minutes drive from Fosse Park. If you are travelling from Leicester to Narborough train station its just a 10 minutes journey and my practice is in a quiet setting in a lovely old grade 11 listed building just 2 minutes walk from the station.
