Ian Gowland Counsellor and Supervisor, MBACP Snr Accred
The way I work as a supervisor is to aim to build a trusting relationship where the supervisee can feel free to bring whatever they would like to about their work with clients. It is my hope that supervisees feel safe enough to bring difficulties and challenges they may be experiencing, without fear of judgment or reprimand. I also hope that supervisees will celebrate their successes, be open to challenge and grow both personally and professionally.
I qualified as a supervisor in 2012, having trained with Jenni Biancardi in Newcastle. The main supervision style of this training was Psychodrama and projective approaches. I have supervised counsellors, both individually and in groups, who work with issues of rape and sexual abuse.
