Shirley Kent Senior Accredited Counsellor & Approved Supervisor
I am a National Counselling Society Approved Supervisor and Senior Accredited Counsellor. I am also a Registered Member of the BACP. I have a Level 7, Advanced Diploma in Counselling Supervision and an Advanced Diploma in Counselling.
About my Supervisory work
My supervisory work is facilitated through my mainly person-centred approach and my appreciation of the benefits of other supervision models, supportive to a supervisee’s good professional practice.
The person – centred supervisory approach recognises each supervisee as an individual, providing you with an opportunity to express yourself as a whole person, in a confidential and supportive environment without fear of judgement.
I aim to offer you an opportunity to explore your client work, to support you in your learning, self-development and effectiveness, ensuring that you are working ethically and professionally. I offer an environment of openness and integrity where you can consult me, confidentially, on all aspects of your counselling work, receive constructive feedback and recharge your batteries.
I adhere to the NCS Code of Ethics and the BACP Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions. I have an appreciation of the ethical codes of other professional counselling bodies.
Who I work with
I supervise counsellors at various levels of professional development. Additionally, I supervise student counsellors with a face to face placement , and provide group supervision to counsellors working in other professional settings. I also provide supervision to non – counselling professionals and organisations.
I only work with counselling professionals who are members of a professional body.
I offer a free of charge, no obligation, preliminary 1.5-hour discussion which provides us with an opportunity to review how we might best work together.
Thereafter, supervision is normally monthly, for a 1.5 hour duration, dependent upon your personal and professional requirements, as agreed in the preliminary discussion.
Supervision sessions are by telephone or Zoom video conferencing. During the current health situation face to face supervision in Taunton is temporarily suspended.
