Kimberley Rowland BSc(Hns) MBACP Integrative Therapist & Clinical Supervisor
I am a passionate and driven integrative counsellor, clinical supervisor and trainer. I work collaboratively with my supervisees to ensure that together we achieve whatever you are looking for within your supervision. There are a number of different theories of supervision and I have explored several of them however, I would say that my supervisory style tends to fit with the seven eyed model, although I fit my supervision style to my supervisees and their needs. The seven eyed model looks at the inter-personal relationships and dynamics both within your work, the work you do with me in our supervision as well as the wider pictures too and it tends to be the most flexible when exploring client work. My Supervision space offers a safe, secure setting in which you can explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours with regards to client work, as well as any potential blind spots, transference and counter-transference that may be impacting you professionally and personally. I provide a non-judgemental, uplifting and empowering environment from which you can flourish, develop and grow personally and professionally. I am truly passionate about the work that I do and ensuring that my supervisee's achieve their potential. I will work with you, as an individual, or in groups, utilising my skills to ensure that the service is tailored to your specific needs and requirements, as well as those of your clients. Supervision is collaborative, the bringing together of two professionals in order to ensure best practice is achieved for client work, as well as to prevent burnout and compassion fatigue within the helping relationships in which you work. Supervision may be sought by any professional who feels they may require it for their work. For supervision to be most effective, you need to be 100% comfortable with your Supervisor so take your time, choose the person who feels right for you! I offer a free over the phone discussion so that you have the opportunity to have any questions that you may have and check out if I am the right Supervisor for you. For all the students out there and those who perhaps are newly qualified or more seasoned professionals who are starting to question and challenge what supervision is for, perhaps not knowing how to get the best out of your supervision, please get in touch! I would be more than happy to provide you with a list of questions to ask yourself about your supervision processes so you can explore and get the most out of your supervision moving forward! I have experience of working with children, young people and adults, from a variety of different backgrounds. I manage a therapeutic service, as well as running my own private practice and training services. These experiences have been in a variety of settings; charities, private practice and within organisations so I have a wider understanding of the varying expectations within the field. I have also worked within different sectors (finance, telecommunications, accounting) prior to becoming a mental health practitioner and so can utilise these skills to ensure that you receive the best possible supervision experience. I will support you in providing a service to your clients which is ethical and complies with best practice. I work within the BACP ethical framework and ethos. I believe as professionals we are always learning and growing, I am currently working towards an MSC in Psychological Trauma and I am an advocate of learning and support CPD practices within your work. I look forward to meeting and working with you! Thank you for viewing my profile.
