Supervision details

I have a Diploma in Counselling Supervision, and offer both individual and group supervision.  I am enthusiastic regarding the use of creative approaches if you would find this useful. My own modality is Humanistic, incorporating elements of the Person-Centred Approach, Gestalt Therapy and Transactional Analysis (TA); however, I have enjoyed working with supervisees with Integrative, Psycho-dynamic, Systemic and even Jungian modalities.  I am a member of both the the UKAHPP and registered with UKCP and the PSA.  I would like to think that my style in the supervisory relationship reflects some of Carl Rogers’ tenets including prizing, warmth and acceptance. I am able to work with a variety of supervision models, most frequently using Hawkins’ ‘Seven-Eyed Model of Supervision’; however, I am prepared to work to other models including for example Carroll’s ‘Six lenses of reflective supervision’ which is quite detailed and even the newer Hewson and Carroll’s ‘Reflective Practice in Supervision’ model. We can draw on various other models and tools for example those offered by Inskipp & Proctor, Patrick Casement as well as the ever popular Mike Carroll. Many supervisees find working with Kagan’s ‘Interpersonal Process Recall’ (IPR) very illuminating to facilitate creative inquiry. Clearly professional and ethical considerations are key to supervision and although I primarily work with the UKAHPP Code of Conduct and Ethical Principles, 2009UKCP Ethical Principles and Code of Professional Conduct, 2009BACP Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions, 2018. I am happy to work to individual requirements, the guidelines from other professional bodies and to organisational codes of practice, as required. In helping supervisees address various Ethical dilemma, I would typically suggest we refer to Bond’s ‘Ethical Problem-solving model’, as I find it valuable in consideration of ethical principles and guidelines.  When considering supervisee development I find the Stoltenberg, McNeill & Delworth ‘Integrated Developmental Model’ (IDM)useful. I have a template Supervisory contract which of course we can tailor to our needs, it typically helps us to outline and clarify our responsibilities in support and reinforcement of the working relationship. So if you are interested in discussing supervision, do give me a call, I’m sure we can create a fun and rewarding space.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
