Supervision details

After 15 years as a therapist I decided to train as a supervisor. I felt this was the right time as I have a wealth of knowledge – both learned academically and lived in the therapy room – from many years in the field. I chose a course which was both classroom learning based and experiential, and undertook the ACT Diploma in Counselling Supervision (SCQF Level 9). It is a course with a holistic approach, training in a number of models, including: Hawkins & Shohet’s 7 Eyed Model; Inskipp & Proctor’s Normative, Formative, Restorative Model; Page & Wosket’s Cyclical Model.

The frequency of supervision I recommend is in line with the BACP recommendations, and based upon the level of experience of the supervisee, the number of supervisees and the number of clients being worked with.

○ Qualified therapists: a minimum of 1.5 hours per calendar month regardless of number of clients. If you have a full case load, you may like to undertake more than 1.5 hours.

○ Trainee therapists: Minimum of 1.5 hours per calendar month. Ratio of 8 hours counselling to 1 hour supervision, with supervision every two weeks.

Cost is £80 for 1.5 hours.
