I'm able to offer clinical supervision to both groups and individual therapists. Having worked as a practitioner for over eight years in different settings and having taught for the last four years on various Counselling and Psychotherapy courses (BACP/UKCP Accredited), I feel that I have developed a variety of experience and knowledge which I use to inform my supervisory work. My approach is an integration between person-centred and relational supervision. In my clinical work, I operate as a person-centred therapist but I took a 'relational turn' as a supervisor, opting to study and work in a way that has an emphasis on the transformational potential of supervision. The relational approach is about allowing your supervision to be a developmental process for you, as well as a supportive one. As Copeland (2007) suggests, "a sound working relationship is the bedrock of good supervision".
The session rates are affordable, and sessions are presently undertaken via virtual platforms due to COVID-19. One of the benefits of working online in a supervisory capacity is that I am able to work with counsellors from across the UK, so please do feel free to contact me even if we aren't local to each other.
In terms of supervisory experience, I have experience of working as an external supervisor at several teaching facilities and counselling organisations as well as in my private practice.
It can be difficult to find a supervisor that you can feel comfortable with and the decision is very unique and individualised. I want to reassure you that I offer a no pressure policy should you feel that my approach is not aligned with your own.
Please feel free to email me or telephone me to discuss this further. I'd be happy to answer any questions you may have and describe my approach further. My current fee is £40 per 1 hour of supervision.
Please note: Due to caseload capacity, I am not presently taking on any student counsellors for supervision, but still have space for qualified therapists and other professionals.
