Samantha Purser MBACP registered, F.D Integrative Couns.
I am a qualified counsellor and supervisor. I offer supervision to counsellors of varying levels from trainees to experienced therapists and also groups.
I use the cyclical model of supervision as I feel it offers a firm yet flexible basis for supervision. The cyclical model is an integrative model and works well with all modalities.
I am experienced in providing supervision to those working with young people having worked in schools and private practice for over 10 years.“Supervision is a joint endeavour in which a practitioner with the help of the supervisor, attends to their clients, themselves as part of their client practitioner relationships and the wider systemic context, and by so doing improves the quality of their work, transforms their client relationships, continuously develops themselves, their practice and the wider profession.” ( Hawkins & Shohet 2000)
Supervision is about exploring the space between the client, counsellor and supervisor.
It is where a supervisee feels safe to reflect and gain insight into their work and in turn aid the ongoing work with their client.
The supervisory space and indeed supervisor acts as a container for work to be explored and considered both in a collaborative, creative and educative style whilst acknowledging the ultimate commitment to the clients well being.
I am a supportive supervisor and aim to bring new perspective and skills to aid the therapeutic work. I am also passionate about raising the levels of supervision and bringing a professional element to the work.
