I work as an integrative supervisor, which means I am able to draw upon a range of theories and approaches.
I particularly specialise in supervising the work of children and young people and like to work creatively to explore together new ideas and ways of working. Some supervisees prefer not to work in a creative context and this is something I totally accept and appreciate, there are so many ways of working that there is no need to push any particular idea.
The relationship in supervision is very important to me, working with supervisees to build trust, helping them to feel safe to explore what they need, listening to them with congruence and offering a collaborative approach where we can explore together by having meaningful conversations that support both the development of self and the relationship with the client.
I also facilitate groups where counsellors, practitioners, school staff teams meet together to gain professional support from each other, an opportunity to share new ideas, to feel heard and understood, and to explore sound ethical practice.
Individual supervision sessions are usually 1.5 hours per month, although some counsellors prefer 1 hour fortnightly depending on individual needs.
Group supervision is usually 1.5 hours per month.
