I have an advanced Diploma in Counselling Supervision (an NCS Accredited training), and I am pleased to offer clinical supervision to both trainees and fully qualified counsellors as well as other professionals.
My aim is to work collaboratively with you, providing a comfortable non-judgemental space where you can explore, and review your counselling work. Examining the wider context, your client, other systems, as well as the impact upon yourself and your future development. I invite you to offer an account of your work so that you can reflect on it, receive feedback and where appropriate, guidance. As well as exploring those issues which can have an impact upon your work.
The work that we do as therapists is often in isolation where we can be presented with unexpected ethical issues or dilemmas in the course of a session. I feel that it is therefore important to find the right supervisor for you. In an environment where you don't fear judgement or recrimination. One that you feel comfortable enough with, that you are able to also bring those elements of your work that may not be so easy to discuss. For it is those aspects that bring us the greatest growth and insights and make us all the better for it.
Supervision is, I believe an essential component not only to your own development but also as a means of self care. When you are able to understanding and become aware of yourself, you are much more able to provide for your client as well as recognising potential areas that may impact upon therapy.
