Supervision details

My supervision training was at the Manchester institute of psychotherapy. The supervision style is based on the seven- eyed supervision process model (Peter Hawkins and Robin Shoet) I offer a comfortable environment where, as with Person Centred Counselling, the relationship is key. Working as a predominantly person centred Supervisor my aim is to provide a safe space in which the supervisee can have a supportive and meaningful experience. The relationship between supervisor and supervisee has important differences from a relationship between therapist and client, but is still underpinned by the core conditions of empathy, congruence and unconditional positive regard.  I believe  the relationship is vital in helping the supervisee feel accepted and not judged essentially helping the supervisee to enhance their self awareness both personally and professionally. I also run group supervision working with trainee and qualified counsellors. Where I facilitate the group by offering good ethical practice in a safe and comfortable environment, enabling counsellors to come together and support each-other. My specialist area is loss and bereavement, Anxiety, trauma. I also work with clients coping with stress, relationships, depression and much more. Supervision provides a space to explore and reflect not just upon the client work or dynamic but also to examine how it challenges you or affects you as an individual, being open to that challenge is where the growth happens. I work with individuals who are person centred and integrative, in my client work I enjoy working creatively and when appropriate will introduce in to supervision if that is something which interests you. I work with newly qualified, in-training or in need of a change. Please call for more information. Fees £50 - 60 mins £65 - 90 mins students £55-90mins  £40 - 60mins
