Angela Blanchard, MA (Hons), DipHe, MSc, Registered Member MBACP
Who do I supervise?
I welcome enquiries from health professionals, social workers, teachers and other professionals, as well as practitioners working in a wide range of counselling and psychotherapy settings, in paid and voluntary roles.
What are my qualifications?
I'm a qualified counsellor and registered member of the BACP (see main counsellor profile), currently working towards accreditation. I have a certificate of counselling and psychotherapy supervision practice and have undergone further training in supervising counsellors working with risk; I also have experience of offering supervision for those using counselling skills in a non-therapeutic role.
How do I practice?
My supervision practice has grown out of my person-centred counselling practice, so I aim to create the same accepting and empathic environment for supervisees as I do for clients. As a supervisor, I use Hawkins & Shohet's "7-eyed supervisor" model (1989/1996) to facilitate the supervisee's growth and development as a practitioner whilst keeping the focus on the work with the client.
