Dot Lawrence: Specialises in Anxiety, Stress & Confidence/ Self Esteem
Hi I am Dot Lawrence.
I offer supervision for trainee and qualified counsellors.
I am a BACP registered integrative Counsellor and a trained Supervisor.
I have over 20 years experience working for BT PLC as a Business Improvement Consultant, Senior Marketing Manager and Skills Development Manager. My responsibilities included;-
- mentoring other managers
- skill development/ performance management
- one to one staff counselling
- conflict resolution
- managing difficult circumstances
- strategic planing
In addition, I have worked with a women's refuge, a local adult counselling charity and social services (London Borough of Ealing and Southend). I currently have my own Counselling practice near Chalkwell Park SS0 8NR offering Counselling and Supervision services.
"Understanding" that supervision as defined by the BACP is a specialised form of professional mentoring that is provided for practitioners who are responsible for undertaking challenging work with people; I believe that the combination of my career with BT and my counselling training/experience has provided me with the necessary skill set to provide other Counsellors with professional supervision for their client work.
My approach is to provide a service that is;-
1. Normative/Managerial – involves issues connected to professional and ethical guidelines, norms, laws, standards of practice and competence, e.g.
discussion about data protection.
2. Formative/Educational – involves skills, theoretical knowledge, e.g. the teaching of a stress management technique.
3. Restorative/Supportive – involves recharging batteries, dis-identification from the emotional charge of client work or managing life crises whilst
still working, e.g. discussions about the impact of trauma work on the
