Marcia Dixon MBACP Counselling Psychotherapist
Despite misinformation about counsellors needing a supervisor who provides supervision in their modality e.g 'A person-centred supervisor', there is no such thing. As a result, some may find themselves being supervised by experienced therapists with no formal supervision training, no supervision of supervision in place, and who are therefore not following any recognised mode of working.
Just like therapy modalities, supervision has a number of models from which each supervisor works. My preferred models are Shohet&Hawkins seven-eyed model, which encourages authenticity in the relationship with the client, relationship between us and the areas that impact each. Carrols seven-tasks model looks at the different roles we all need from a supervisor such as administrator, educator or manager. Combining the 2 models and working together to find what works, supports you in remaining a healthy, present, self-aware and open counsellor, able to offer the best therapy to the clients you work with.
