Jules Fothergill - BACP (Accred.) EMDR, PG Dip. Supervision, PG Dip. Couples.
I completed in 2013 a Post Graduate Diploma in Supervision, with Inter-Psyche.
This was an insightful and excellent year long course, where I learnt a lot and further developed my skills. My reason for choosing to become a Supervisor, was because during my placement and early career, I experienced a very ‘mixed bag’ of supervision, and often felt out of my depth and not adequately supported.
I feel passionately that what I want for myself, and what I offer to others, is ethical, theory based, supportive and educative Supervision. I work with anyone from a new Trainee, up to the most Senior Practitioner.
I believe now more than ever, that good, effective and supportive supervision is essential if you wish to work as a Counsellor or Psychotherapist in our very often challenging and tough world.
I see supervision as a structured working relationship, where the goal is to work together in a collegiate way, so as to ensure and develop the efficacy and trust of the counsellor/client relationship.
The two main models of Supervision I work with:
Bond and Holland – 1998
"Clinical supervision is regular, protected time out to reflect on practice, in which the supervisee can develop high-quality practice through the means of focused support and development.”
Brigid Proctor’s – 1986
Formative (Learning) – developing skills, abilities and understandings through reflective practice.
Restorative (Support) – how the supervisee responds emotionally to stresses in the working Environment.
Normative (Accountability) – clinical supervision concerned with maintaining and ensuring the effectiveness of the supervisee.
I run Supervision Groups (no more than 4) and offer One to One supervision for those that are looking specifically, to complete their BACP accreditation in the next 12-18 months offering support with reflective supervision, completion of on-line criteria and answering of questions and small essay pieces.
