My supervision Approach
The quality of the relationship between the supervisee and supervisor is crucial as it acts as the foundation for the learning and development of the supervisee, and in turn the basis of the quality of the support for the client. This is a multidimensional and complex task where I seek to find a balance between supporting supervisees, teaching them new skills and monitoring their interactions between clients.
My supervision approach is humanistic and integrative. I hope to help supervisees feel safe and supported enough to reflect honestly on their support of clients. I am influenced by the models of Hawkins & Shohet (2006) and Page & Wosket (1994), in which there is a focus on the supervisory relationship, as well as providing a reflective space for the supervisee to develop.
I welcome supervisees with different therapeutic perspectives from my own.
I am a Registered Counselling Psychologist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). I am also a registered member (MBACP) with the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP). I have completed the BPS approved training in clinical supervision that provides eligibility to join the Register of Applied Psychology Practice Supervisors (RAPPS).
Mode of supervision
Supervision sessions are offered via Microsoft Teams.
The first step is to arrange a 60-minute consultation. During this time, we will have the opportunity to meet each other, talk about your expectations of supervision, and I can provide you with further information about my supervision approach. This consultation will provide you with the opportunity to decide if my approach to supervision matches your needs. The first consultation is charged at £40.
Supervision sessions are charged at £60, and are via Microsoft Teams. Weekday, evening and weekend appointments are available. Discounted rates are available for trainees, so please do ask.
