The BACP suggests a minimum recommendation for counsellors of 1.5 hours of supervision per month, depending on the number of clients seen. I owe a huge debt to all the supervisors I have worked with, before and after qualification and the good practice I learned from them informs the way I practice both as supervised and supervisor. I trained and qualified with a Diploma in Supervision from CCPE, London in 2003 and have worked with individual and group supervision ever since. I offer 90 minute sessions of supervision, mostly using a process model, in which both the therapy session and the here-and-now experience of supervision inform your awareness of the work, as well as taking account of your theoretical model, developmental needs and training/organisational requirements. Inevitably I bring my own theoretical background and experience to bear on the work, but, as you will have gathered from my profile, my approach is broadly eclectic and integrative. I like supervision to be fun, focussed, honest and open. I really enjoy working with training or newly-qualified counsellors, as well as those who have been working for some time. I want you to accept that I do not know all the answers, though I am not afraid to ask some searching questions! If you would like to arrange an exploratory meeting, at which we can discuss your needs and see if we can work together, please do get in touch. Group supervision is offered in Blackfriars and Rye, East Sussex and individual supervision in all locations.
