Rachel Leech MBACP BSc Counselling, Psychotherapy, Mindfulness, & Supervision
Are you looking for a new supervisor or are you a trainee counsellor wanting to find your first supervisor? I am an experienced and qualified counselling/psychotherapy and mindfulness practitioner with over 10 years experience working with children and adults. I developed and lead the children and young people's counselling service at a local hospice where I am also the safeguarding officer for children. I have my own private practice working from a tranquil therapy centre in Buxton where I offer supervision and counselling on a Monday and Thursday. My experience includes working with domestic abuse, grief pre and post bereavement, creative techniques which help to work at depth with anxiety and trauma. Creative techniques can also help people to move out of cognitive defences and find new ways to explore and understand what's going on by accessing a different part of the brain.
I look forward to developing a collaborative supervisory relationship offering support and a safe place to explore your practice and help to develop skills, and facilitate a space for reflection and self growth. I am qualified with a postgraduate certificate in supervision based on the 7 eyed model developed by Hawkins and Shohet which offers a framework suitable for working with all modalities. Supervision relationships are individual and fluid depending on the supervisee and supervisor. It can be educative, restorative, supportive, collaborative. I work integratively using humanistic, creative and transpersonal client led models/techniques. I have an initial background of psychodynamic training which can offer insight into how the past may influence the present and how to work with that therapeutically.
Feel free to call me, I'm happy to talk through and explore the idea of working with me as your supervisor. It's important to find the right supervisor so I'd encourage speaking to a few supervisors and ask questions to get a sense of how you feel.
