Mark Bottrill MBACP(Accred) Psychotherapist & Supervisor
Supervision is all about 'doing no harm' and that includes client, therapist, employer, and employee. For counsellors / psychotherapists, supervision ensures that you are practising safely and effectively, it helps you grow and learn as a therapist, integrate theory, untangle what is yours and what is theirs, and support you in your work with clients, as well as the growth of your business. For psychotherapists working clinically, it is a forum for good structure and process around diagnosis and treatment planning. For employees it ensures you are heard and seen by your employers, appreciated for the work you do well, and encouraged to learn new skills and challenge your 'growing edges' (areas for growth). For employers, owners and directors, having supervision means you have somewhere to offload and get supported yourself.
I offer a choice of either individual or group supervision for:
- Counsellors and psychotherapists
- Counselling and psychotherapy students
- Professionals working in a therapeutic way with others, such as social workers, nurses etc.
- Employees, as an external service that either compliments or replaces exsiting supervision
- Employers, business owners, and directors
At the beginning of new groups, and for new members / clients, we will set out a business contract to begin with, outlining fees, conduct, dates, times and location, and how we may all work together. We will also set a contract about each piece of supervision brought, which will typically include what is being brought and what you may want from the supervision process.
