"It seems that whatever approach or method is used, in the end it is the quality of the relationship between supervisor and counsellor that determines whether supervision is effective or not . . . There needs to be a degree of warmth, trust, genuineness and respect between them in order to create a safe enough environment for supervision to take place."
All my supervisors and supervisees have taught me one essential thing: that a commitment to authenticity is vital. Supervision can be rich and enjoyable at the same time as being challenging; it’s in those moments of discomfort that we discover most about the relationship between the client and ourselves.
I don't counsel your clients by proxy: my focus is on how you feel and what you might be experiencing when you're with individual clients.
Feeling secure enough to explore the difficult stuff - in the relationship between client and supervisee and in the relationship between you and me - requires confidence and respect from both of us. Annual reviews are part of my commitment to the Ethical Framework.
