I offer supervision from a Person-Centred perspective to other counsellors/therapists and those in roles supporting clients or patients.
I also offer supervision to writers/therapists using writing for therapeutic purposes. This is a means of support and helps to maintain practitioner, individual and group members safety. These supervision sessions are often via video link.
Writers may not have an additional counselling qualification and may find difficult or complex mental health issues emerging from the writing exercises they offer. They may not feel confident to handle what emerges or they may be unsure of when or if to signpost to other, more appropriate mental health services. Supervision in this arena with an experienced counsellor and writer is an opportunity to talk things over to find the best way of working with the issues and gain personal support. It is also a place to bring issues of your own that may have been triggered by the group/writing exercises.
My aim is to create a safe space for supervisees to bring their client work to explore where they feel held, understood and respected.
Creative media can be offered, used and client work explored in this way, if requested.
Sessions can be face to face or via the VSee, doxy.me or Zoom video platforms. Telephone sessions are also available
I have undertaken a Certificate in Clinical Supervision in 2016 and work from Inskipp & Proctor's Supervision Alliance Model (1995 & 2001): Normative, Formative and Restorative and within this a focus on thoughts, feelings and actions which fits very well with my Person-Centred core.
