Lorraine Martin MBACP (Accred) Counsellor and Supervisor
In addition to my private practice I offer supervision to both qualified counsellors and counsellors in training.
My supervision style encompasses my integrative approach to counselling based on Humanistic foundations. This is primary using a compassionate approach to CBT and Psychodynamic principles but aspects of other models are used including TA and Solution Focused therapy, which may be particularly helpful for shorter term work . The key focus is supporting counsellors in their work to grow professionally, receive support including ethical issues and provide a space to reflect on client work and needs.
I also manage a counselling service which enables me to have a broad experience and exposure to a range of counselling issues.
I hold a post graduate diploma in supervision and would be happy to discuss your supervision needs and preferences. Generally I would suggest an initial telephone conversation and then a face to face meeting in order to learn more about each other and how we may work together.
As with counselling it is the strength of the supervisory relationship which will predominantly determine its success rather than the particular model of therapy although an understanding and respect of our respective approaches is important.
Fees £50 per hour. If you are a counsellor in training or work in a low cost or voluntary sector please contact me to discuss possible concessions.
