Jodie Sturges Dip, Couns MBACP, Integrative Adult & Childrens Counsellor)
I offer clinical supervision to experienced Counsellors as well as trainees. I have very good experience and knowledge, working with adults, young people and children. I am able to offer good tips, tools and advice when working with children in play therapy. I am able to help with using creative ways when working with young people.
I like my role to be fluid and adaptable depending on what you bring to Supervision. My roles will include being a mentor, teacher, evaluator, advisor, consultant, supporter, manager and facilitator.
I have very good knowledge and experience in setting up a private practice and also how to maintain good a practice. For example, remaining ethical, boundaries, advertising, marketing, insurance, forms, diary management and self-care. My own private practice is very successful and I am happy to pass this knowledge on.
I have work in schools, Gp and other agencies as well as in private practice. I am also a counselling tutor.
Sessions are for 1 hour or 1.5 hours which falls inline with working towards accreditation. Due to my busy schedule I would like to stick to one Saturday a month for supervisees. I do however appreciate that this may not always be possible and I may have evenings or daytime slots available. I try my very best to be as flexible and accommodating as possible.
I will use an information sheet to gather personal details from you that will help me get a better understanding of your background, work and orientation. I will keep a ‘record of session’ sheet to record notes and dates of sessions.
I am an integrative Counsellor and I have a good knowledge of each of the modalities I use, person centered, psychodynamic and CBT.
Self-care, paperwork, business, reflections and thoughts are all areas that I explore with Supervisee.
I have a good knowledge on the CPD’s available in my area and I also run my own workshops.
I will strive to help you to become more confident within work and help explore and resolve any ethical dilemmas.
I am a challenger, for me challenge means growth and so this is incorporated in my framework. I am comfortable in sharing my own experience and mistakes if the agenda is to facilitate your learning. I believe I am genuine and supportive and have a good balance between task-based qualities and relationship qualities.
I am very ambitions and confident in my work and I would hope that my enthusiasm would be encouraging to you.
£45 per session for 1 hour & £65 for 1.5 hours
