Paula Howel, MBACP Trained Counsellor & Supervisor.
I am a fully qualified supervision practitioner, with a PG certificate in the 7 eyed model of supervision, which is a psychodynamic approach, although my counselling background is Person-centered. I am a counselling supervisor who practices the 7 eyed model of supervision. I aim to help my supervisees feel confident and competent in their role as a counsellor. I offer a supportive and quiet environment. We will work together to help you acknowledge your strengths and to identify areas of improvement.
You will be guided to look at your counselling practice in an objective way to analyse for yourself what the main concerns of the client are. You will be supported to look at your practice from different perspectives in order to get a clear picture of the way in which you are working.
Supervision is a must for practicing counsellors and together we can form a plan of how you want to go forward as a counsellor and identify your ideas about a career in counselling.
The 7 eyed model looks at the client work, the relationship of the supervisee and client, the transference and counter transference, the supervisee and supervisor relationship and the environment and all other aspects of the work.
We will build a supportive and balanced relationship whereby trust is paramount. You will be encouraged to give me feedback and I will provide you with the emotional nourishment to satisfy your needs as a counsellor.
You may experience anxiety as a counsellor and need support to overcome this fear. If this is you, feel welcome to contact me to discuss the work we can embark on together.
You will find me approachable and sensitive to your needs. I will help you understand your role as a counsellor from a deeper level, by exploring the process you are encountering with your client and the parallel process you are experiencing.
I hope you will find supervision with me enlightening and rewarding, sustaining of your practice and feel confident and competent within your position.
