Hello, if you are looking for supervision you have come to the right place.

I offer an integrative approach to supervision

If you are seeking supervision for the first time or are wanting to change your supervisor for good reasons it may help to clarify some of the main differences between therapy and supervision

An aim of the therapist is to help the client lead a more enriched and fulfilling life whereas for the supervisor it is to enable the fullest therapeutic use to be made of the counselling or psychotherapy (Page and Wosket (2015, p. 19.)

As your supervisor I will be helping you develop skills and deepen reflection on the therapeutic process.

The therapist may refrain from expressing their understanding of the clients world for a number of sessions whereas the supervisor will address what is happening in the ‘here and now’ with the appreciation that it only relates to the work with this particular client at this time.

As your supervisor I will be keen to find an outcome before your next session with the client.

At the heart of this model of supervision is the space to be informed by the instinctive, intuitive and the unknown. This alchemy is so essential for the creative process.

As your supervisor my job is to create a safe, supportive and confidential environment where you feel able to openly explore what has emerged in your work / relationships. To help you in the containing of any potential chaos and facilitate the release of creative potential that will enhance therapeutic work.

Please do contact me if you would like to find out more or see my website: www.karenwoodley.com or karen.woodley@counsellingvalleys.com

I look forward to hearing from you

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.
