Sophy Winfield Integrative Counsellor and Clinical Supervisor; Dip Couns. MBACP
Regular clinical supervision is a requirement for registered members of most professional counselling bodies (such as the BACP, NCS or UKCP).
Clinical supervision is regular scheduled time to review client work, to consider the client/counsellor relationship and to sustain good practice as safely and as ethically as possible. The supervisor and counsellor work together to ensure the client is kept at the heart of the work. It gives safe space to explore and navigate as best as possible any ethical issues that may arise for both client and counsellor. Part of the work may involve considering areas for personal and professional development, as well as to ensure skills and knowledge are kept up to date. Supervision also enables the counsellor to safely consider their own personal resources to sustain their work and their client load.
How I Work:
I am a qualified Integrative Clinical Supervisor. Using an Integrative supervision model enables us to have a thorough exploration during our work together. My model supports us to form a collaborative and congruent relationship, which I believe is vital as we review and explore your clients and work.
I use the 7 Tasks of Supervision (Carroll) as a framework, and integrate 3 supervision models: the 7 Eyed Model (Hawkins & Shohet) , The Cyclical Model (Page & Wosket) and the Functional Model (Proctor).
OCN Accredited Certificate in Counselling Supervision.
CPCAB Level 6 Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Supervision.
Counselling and Psychotherapy Supervision is offered on a fortnightly or monthly basis and fees are £50 per 1 hour session, £70 per 1.5 hour session and £90 per 2 hour session.
I can offer Group Supervision. Please get in touch if this is of interest.
I have limited spaces for concessionary supervision rates for counselling students in training on recognised counselling courses, so please do ask if this applies to you.
