Ian Major, Counsellor (BACP Accredited) & Clinical Supervisor
I began the supervision of student counsellors in 2007 and then obtained my Diploma in Supervision in 2010. I now have many years of experience in working with student, interim and experienced counsellors who are working with an adult client base. My own way of working as an Integrative Counsellor draws on Person Centred and Psychodynamic practise, laterally incorporating some aspects of Cognitive and Behavioural theory.
As a supervisor I particularly enjoy helping other counsellors to develop and explore their practise in a safe, supportive environment, and to form an effective working synthesis between their professional and personal selves – that is, to really find the way of working that is right for each individual supervisee, and to build confidence in the process of effective, ethical counselling. As a former senior counsellor I have years of experience in working with often complex issues, overseeing the running and the work of a team of counsellors, setting up & establishing a new counselling service, and dealing with the undoubted challenges of the modern work environment.
